Fall projects

Having neglected this blog for way too long, it's time to get back in the swing with a few pics of past projects.
So, in no particular order....

Here is a wall hanging I did in the fall of 2011. I actually got it all quilted, bound and hung. I think it's a Pat Sloan pattern.

This is the London Roads quilt, finished in Dec. of 2010 with mostly stitch in the ditch quilting, but a few stars quilted in the border.

Here's the quilting from the back. The stars show up better. I didn't mark them ahead of time, but just free motion quilted them, adding a few loops in between.

We went to Bar Harbor, Maine to watch our son and daughter-in-law run in a marathon. Of course I had to research ahead of time to see if there were any local quilt shops. I found one right in Bar Harbor, called Fabricate and couldn't resist buying some Maine blueberry fabric and coordinates. These are not at all 'my' colors, but I think they're beautiful anyway. I'm still searching for just the right project for them.
