Sample and Quilts for Kids

First off a little housekeeping.  Some of you have been posting comments and I got very behind on replying and some of the comments are not showing up in my email and I forget to check.  I love all the comments and so appreciate the time it takes for you to write them!  Thank you! 

I made another sample quilt for my friend's shop and yes I have made this one before, just as I had in my last post!  I also made three Quilts for Kids.  I ordered two kits and used some leftover dinosaur fabrics from a quilt I made my grand nephew over six years ago for a third quilt.  They are quick and easy and it is just a great organization to support.  One more pile of fabric is now out of my stash as I just have small scraps left of the dinosaur fabrics.  I really thought I had taken straight pictures this time.  I really am not a crooked quilter!

I did a sinple large meander.  Super quick and easy quilting.

I quilted wavy lines through this one.  Also super quick and easy.

 This one is from fabrics I had on hand.  I had some strip sets and added to them and it's a fun, easy quilt to make!

Simple loop quilting finished this one off quickly.

Linking up with Design Wall Monday.

A Few Tops and a Small Finish

Since our fair in mid September it doesn't seem like I have accomplished a lot.  I made a mini quilt, but other than that it has been tops.  I have done some canning, projects for school, had a family funeral and company and I hope I can focus on projects again soon!  I know to most people I accomplish a lot, but I am used to being an over achiever possibly?  😄

Here are some of the projects I have worked on recently:

This is an 18" mini I designed and made for the Teal Mini Swap in the support of Ovarian Cancer research.  The fabric we were sent is the teal one that is just to the left of center on top and to the right of center on the bottom.  My swap partner likes modern and bright colors  and I called this Sound Waves. 
 This is the mini I received from my partner in Pennsylvania! 
 I have been making some tops for my friend's quilt shop, Your Best Friend's Quilt Shop  I made two dog quilts, that were pretty cute with fussy cutting.  They are throw size. 

I also repeated making this flannel quilt from a kit for the shop.  She sold the other one!

I also repeated making this fox quilt, because the other sample was also sold!  The owner is lucky to be able to sell completed quilts, but I am looking forward to some of the other fun projects she sent me!

I love the colors of fall, although I am not a fan of cold weather.  Snow is predicted for tonight!  YIKES!  I am so not ready for that.  I need to get out and take more fall pics.  We have huge maple trees in our yard.  I snapped this one on my way to town last week.  I drop down 2,000 feet to get to the closest town and the valley was socked in with fog.  It was a cloudy day when I got down there!
