Fall Festival

If you've been following my blog or Lori's Humble Quilts blog, you know that she organized a group quilt-a-long doing Jan Patek's quilt, "Fall Festival.

Our homework this month was 3 more blocks and start working on the flying geese that are scattered throughout the quilt.    I got my blocks finished, but haven't started on the geese because I haven't picked the fabric for my sashing.

I'm doing all the applique blocks using wool on cotton.

Here's what we did this month.

At the rate we're going, we will be finished in no time and this is a very large quilt.   
It will be fun to have it finished in time to hang this Fall.
Now go check out Humble Quilts to see what everyone else accomplished this month. 
Thanks, Lori for organizing this fun quilt-a-long.  

See ya later, 
Hugs, Anne

Pine Tree Ridge

If you have been following my blog, you know that, since January, Sandy and I started working on Jan Patek's Block of the Month called "Pine Tree Ridge"   Our plan was to do a block each month, but we were both enjoying it so much that, independently of one another, we worked ahead.   So, last month, I showed you that we were almost half finished.

We are both using fabrics from our stash, so its fun to see how different they are.

This month, I'm reversing the order of our finished blocks.  Mine will be first and Sandy's second.

Here are the 4 blocks that I finished.

And here is Sandy's FINISHED quilt.   
Now the pressure is on me to get mine finished next month. 

Looks like we are going to have to find another project to work on together! 

See ya later, 
Hugs, Anne
