Happy Halloween!  Watch out for all the trick or treaters tonight.  Hope the weather is good in your neighborhood.  Growing up in Maryland it was sometimes not so pleasant, but don't recall ever not filling up my sack with as many treats as possible!
I put together Kourageous Meadow Buttercup on Sunday.  I'm happy with the results.  It ties in the August block just as I'd hoped it would.  Wonder what November has in store for me?  This is Kourageous so far January through March on the top row.  Row two is April through June.  Row three is July through September and finally October at the bottom. 
After finishing the flower block I moved on to putting the binding and sleeve on Kolonial.  This is what I've got to look forward to after dinner...lots of binding.  Kolonial on the left and Kondor's Klutch on the right.  Both of these are Bonnie Hunter patterns Jamestown Landing and Hawk's Nest.
I found no time to work on Katnip Krazy yesterday.  Except for preparing the 38 1" ears for the mice border.  I will be using Steam A Seam 2 and a satin stitch for applying them.  Rickrack whiskers are next and then time to put it all together.  I'd like to have the top assembled by Thursday...we'll see.
Deadline met with October's UFO and excitement in seeing Kolonial and Kondor's Klutch finish is taking priority in my sewing room.  Check out other quilters' projects this week on Patchwork Times.

You made it!! The Meadow Buttercup is beautiful. What a lovely masterpiece you will have when this quilt is finished. Congrats on the "almost there" with Bonnie's two patterns. That is no small accomplishment. Her patterns use lots of pieces. Yours look great!

I grew up in Maryland too, and I can recall you never knew from one year to the next that kind of weather you were going to have on this night! You've been working on some beautiful things! : )
