National JR Day Finish

I used National Jelly Roll Day (Saturday) to pull a JR flimsy and get it quilted.  I found four in the one tote and chose this one.  This is a 'made' JR of scrap browns and a variation of the JR Race pattern.  Quick and simple!

Just straight line quilting across the rows - pieced the back to use up more yardage.  I had the binding pinned to the flimsy, so that was ready to add.  Finished size for a couch throw - 50" x 64".

I want to thank CARLA for putting together another fun Hop and so fitting to celebrate the next season.  Fall is my favorite season with cooler temperatures, fruits and vegies of the growing season, and the crisp colors.

I was going to make a small project, But.............

Fall, also, means plaids and snuggling under a warm quilt by the fire.  This is LORNA'S 'Buffalo Plaid Moose' pattern.  I changed the buffalo plaid setting to a scrappy use of plaids, homespuns, and shirts.  

My Dad had a run in with a moose many years ago and his favorite expression after that - when ever faced with conflict - was 'don't goose the moose'.  He had a 'moose crossing' sign here at the top of our long drive to slow drivers before getting into the main farm area - we don't have any moose here.  But he liked the gag.

I used up the large pieces of homespun for the back.  Just an added touch to the 'Earthy Fall' feel to this quilt.

And the rumple.....................

HEE HEE - Moe loved this quilt from the time I pulled that tote of homespuns and helped with every step in it's making.  So I quess he has a right to photo bomb and run back/forth behind the quilt.


This lovely panel of owls and four fall leaf print fat quarters could be yours.  Just be sure I have a way to contact you.  I will pull the winner on Monday, Sept 28.

Rolling Along

I don't have any Jelly Rolls, but I am sure there is a flimsy waiting to be quilted that was born from a Jelly Roll.  So I will QUILT a Jelly Roll.

Scrappy Wednesday

The goal today is to finish up piecing all the rows.  Maybe I will get them into twosies or even two halves of a quilt top?  Even though my priotity this month is to quilt up  that pile of small items, it's OK to add another quilt top into mix - right?

  My Favorite Season

AND starting on Sept 21st, Lori @ Humble Quilts will be hosting a small quilt QAL '50 Shades of Brown' and you can find the information HERE,  That's a picture of her browns, but I think I have just about everyone of those! (and more)

Cooler temps are here (frost next week) and the pumpkin spice everthing is every where!  Apples and pumpkins and winter squash are at the farm stands.  Leaves are changing color.  I wish we could send our cooler air and rains to the west coast - prayers for all.
