It's that time of year!

even though it's October, and "technically" we're still a month away from putting quilts together; I should be working on my yellows (that's the color for October, right? I haven't' even pieced yellow blocks- except for the low volume plus...) I got way too excited and finished 2 quilts these last 2 weeks- my Low Volume Plus quilt, (RSC16) and a 16 Patch quilt (RSC15)

This Plus Quilt is so simple, but can I just say I lovelovelove it? again- lots of favorite fabrics in here; all my family is represented with dresses, shirts, quilts, aprons, ect...

our sweet little miniature donkey, Daisy, now has the hang of the quilt photo shoots. Quilt + Camera = treats for the donkey. she's so cute!

RSC15 was the year of the 16 patches for me. (and again: simple but effective) I used my Farmer's Market quilt all summer. but as usual: I went a bit overboard and pieced HEAPS AND SCADS of the 16 patches. (over 200. sheesh....)

just a simple layout for this one. I laid the colors out in diagonal rows- there was a lot of red; red will also be the backing and binding.

this quilt will go to one of the MCC auctions; probably next fall.

AND: I still have about 20 16 patch blocks left! I'm thinking a baby quilt, or dolly quilt... we'll see.

Congratulations on two colorful and wonderful quilt top finishes! I love both of them!

Those are just wonderful! Now I want to make a plus quilt! Maybe for next year. I've been making 16 patches this year and working on the layout this week. Not 200 of them, though! Lol!

I love straightforward unfussy blocks -- the repetition of their designs is soothing and, because you and I do scrappy, they are also interesting.

That's another AWESOME 16-Patch quilt top! Funny that you made so many blocks that there's still more remaining after TWO quilts. Looking forward to seeing what setting you come up with for the remaining blocks!

Both of your quilt tops are beautiful!! I really love your plus quilt. I need to make one of those!
