She thrilled us with her colors that soon turned into muted hues. She gave us some warth, some blustery days, some rain, some snow, some cold, the last of a season's harvest bounty, and a time for us to reflect on being Thankful. And today, with a whisper of a wind, she will be gone.
I managed to get the 'Heritage Star' quilt top together using Barbara Brackman's Stars in a Time Warp - history of vintage fabrics that I found so fascinating and perfect to work this piece. Still no full photo of this one and it will have to wait for it's finish in the new year - then you can see it in it's grandeur.
My 'Let's Book It' project was finished (although a finish isn't necessary) just in time for the linky party.
'Tucker' was a finish with the sew along with Heart Spun Quilts. She will be having a parade of Tuckers December 15th and I can't wait to see how everyone finished theirs off.
I got some pillowcases done for collection at our next Quilt Guild meeting. I used the Hot Dog tutorial (many on the internet). These go to a local charity for Christmas baskets and we usually collect an average of 60 pillowcases.
And I made one of each animal binky bibs with this pattern for one of our sewing students. They are very quick to make, but they certainly are smaller than what appears in the photo cover. I ended up making them exactly to the pattern - hanger and velcro - rather than change things.
The next four blocks with the Moda Shuffle Sampler. Two blocks come out every Friday, but I wait for every other release and then pull 4 layer cakes to play with the 4 blocks. Although I found I tried to use some of the left overs from the last group into some of these - no waste!
There was some other block and scrap play while cleaning, clearing, re-organizing - but that was just for fun stuff and long term projects. I took part in the 'Pup' parade and the 'Trunk Show', too - but that was just photo stuff.
I slacked on the hand stitching and really want to get that back into my work ethic. Maybe that pink star quilt needs to come back out as the orange peels just don't strike me right now.
How was your November?
