We've welcomed in Fall this week.  The talk is that with Fall it is quilting time!  I can't wait to get back into the swing of sewing.  My quilting time has been pretty limited lately with everything else that has been going on.  That my friends is changing today...

Kalvert Kliffs
72" x 84"
Kalvert Kliffs was finished during the week.  The quilting on this one is lovely.  Kerry never disappoints me.  The quilting design is called Jovial Feathers and a maple color thread was used.  It reminds me of Fall so I am happy to have this up in my foyer right now.  Did you bring out your Fall themed quilts?  I have several of mine up which brings a smile to my face.
Kloggs In Work
102" x 120"
There has been no change this past week to my stash design wall continues to hold Kloggs.  I have most of the piecing done so it shouldn't take much time to finish.

First though, I am putting together a cute Halloween quilt for my nephew's sons Luke and Logan.  Last year they shared a Halloween quilt; this year they will both have one of their own.

If you want to learn more about Kalvert Kliffs and Kloggs use the Labels box on the right.  I hope to see you visit me on Sunday.  Happy Friday =^.^=

Design Wall Monday, September 12, 2016

Today I spent a lot of time on Kloggs.  This is a design by Lori Smith called Pinwheels for Caroline.  It will be a big king size quilt.  Either my Sister or I will end up with it on our bed.  My friend Bonnie gifted me the pattern a couple of years back.  Originally I had thought to make this one a smaller size, but no calculations and an abundance of fabrics not to mention two of us wanting a new quilt for our bed...
I have all the pinwheel blocks to through the first two seams with only one more sew. My Design Wall won't hold all of it that is for certain.  The next block to sew which is part of the border is the Northwind Block.
Today I took out my Fall inspired quilts and to my surprise found corks that I didn't know about.

Looks like another birdhouse will be under construction.  This one is the second made.  It was made with my Mom and Dad when I visited with them recently.  I already miss them and it hasn't yet been a week.

I will be enjoying the company of Sunshine Quilt Guild Members on Tuesday.  It is always a good time seeing and hearing what everyone else has going on.  Enjoy your week!

Sunday Stash Report, September 11, 2016

Paying tribute to those who served well including Bretagne.

Here she is on that fateful day.  This brave dog just recently moved on to the rainbow bridge.  There was an honorable departure for her.

She just mssed her 17th birthday.

You can read about Bretagne HERE.  To all of those two and four legged souls involved in the crisis my thoughts are with you on this day of remembrance.

As for stash...another one for building.  Last year I gifted Luke and Logan with a Halloween quilt promising a second one this year.  I was a bit worried there might be some possessiveness with just one being sent, but I was told they both were good at sharing.  Well share no more...

Isn't this panel just adorable?  The green dot will be for both the border and back.  The stripe will be for the binding.  The other two FQs are stash builders.
