Summer's Back?

Seriously, last time I posted, it was really cool fall weather.  Now we've had several days in a row where we've been in the upper 70s to 80s ...even one day close to 90!  Clear skies and dry weather has helped the farmers in our area get their crops out of the fields.  I know Mother Nature will be bringing us back to reality soon, so I'll enjoy it while I can.

The results are in.  After polling here and on other sites, I have decided to name my basket pattern "Basket Banter".  That was the name that received the most votes.  (see my last blog post for the photo of this project).  I'm now busily at work on my next projects.  One is called "Basketweave Stars" that has a lap quilt and table runner.  It's all piecing and no applique.  It's also made with all fat quarters!  The quilt is not quite done yet.  I'm still adding a border that will be scalloped and it has to be quilted by my long arm quilter, but I'll post a photo below.  The other projects I'm working on is a series of scrappy pieced and appliqued small wall hangings/table toppers.  I'm really excited about these as I think they can be appliqued with fabric or wool!  I can't wait to try.

Well, time to get to the sewing machine!  Happy quilting to you today!

Looks great Deanne and love the colors. The blue makes the stars sparkle!

It's great weather for the farmers in southern Iowa as well.

The weather is perfect for checking out the quilt shops and shows with beautiful scenery while you travel!

Dianne we are having beautiful weather in the south of England too. It is in the high 60s to low 70s and is perfect. It is wonderful to see all the fall colors and still be out enjoying the sunshine too. It is quite nippy at night though but it is nice to snuggle under a quilt and your is just perfect for this time of year.
