not much to harvest, but the harvest quilt is done!

due to the all the flooding that we had in September, our gardens were abruptly done. that's left me with more time for quilting. (after cleaning, laundry and cooking, of course. of course!)

finally finished this cute little table runner, and with a few modifications, I'd make it again. thimbleberries can be so frustrating and twiddly sometimes.

project #3: another quick quilt. this one is for sale, if you want it when it's done!

here's the project drawn for this month- and a great one to do before Christmas comes!

this is a "quilt" that i recently finished. the husband stopped, and wanted me to make a quilt for his wife. while the final result was a surprise, she did stop by one afternoon, and designed this quilt from pictures that she saw in one of my books. i say "quilt" because it's really a duvet cover, although sometime it could be bound like a traditional quilt. although i would say this is the first and last quilt I'll do with so much applique, I'm happy with how it turned out!

we had snow last Saturday (crazy weather around here!) and i had previously promised A that we would sew together during the first snowstorm. although she was initially disappointed that we were sewing the simple 4 patches, and not a doll dress, she was very pleased with the final results.

A is 5, and she was so proud of the 7 blocks that she pieced. she's got them sewn into a table runner, and would like to finish it to give to her Sunday school teacher.

Just love the table runner, and the appliqued border on that quilt is gorgeous!

Little A looks so proud of her work, as well she should be! What a wonderful surprise that will be for her teacher. Adorable!

Great timing on finishing your fall table runner! So perfect for the season. And, A's tablerunner will be perfect for her teacher too! (Wish I could have taught my daughter to sew...)

A great runner and I love combining applique with pieced blocks. So special. Judy C

I love the pumpkins and stars. I saw your comment on an older Moda Bake Shop post, the Amish braid, and have to agree the recipes for the most part are pretty bland anymore. Hope you get your tractor for Christmas!
