T- minus....

3 days and counting.....
Are you all ready.... Did you do you make your list, grocery shopping?
There is a lot to do... Family coming over? House cleaned and prepped? Rooms ready if there are staying overnight? There's so much to do.
Remember to sneak some sewing in whenever possible... You know that's a stress reliever. Haha.
Hope everyone has a wonderful Turkey Day and enjoy every minute!

Hope y'all have a fabulous day with the ones you love!

Pineapple quilt...

Found this one on Facebook or Instagram or maybe both, I don't remember. 

It was fun and quick... Gathering all the fabrics, they looked wonderful together. Now that they are all put together I now see my greens needed to be darker. Oh well. Here's a close up..

Pattern was free from Jackie Padesky. @jackiepadesktquilts. She made it and it looked wonderful then offered it to anyone who asked. It measures roughly 62x78. 
Now off to sew backings together.

Double 9 patch

Finished this one this past week. When I took the picture, it was super windy out & this was the best I could do.

It's called Double Nine Patch by Primitive Gatherings. I stopped at the shop today (PG) and got the backing. Well, I got the backings for 5 quilts, bought 1 more kit, and then a couple more pieces of fabric for 2 more quilts in progress. I love keeping busy. Then Dru tells me she's dropping off some samples for me to work on... Eek! I have to have them done before Road to Calif.

Punkin' Patch....

Took the handsome man to the Pumpkin Patch today...

Wasn't too sure... Especially in the petting zoo. I couldn't get the camera out to take a picture. He was all over me.
But, we had fun!

Found this on Facebook I's a Deb Grogan pattern.
I downloaded it from somewhere... Don't remember where..I just noticed my shadow in the middle of the pumpkin. Looks like a big spot but it's not.

Finish it up Friday..

A day late that is..
I finished quilting yesterday and put binding on today. The kit was gifted to me by my sister a LONG time ago. I was always afraid to start it because it looked liked it was WAY over my sewing level. It was a challenge, looks a lot better quilted that's for sure.
And there she is..."Pacific Rim Quilt", 61x61.  Already washed and dried and all crinklie... I LOVE that last part!
Label and all!
