Eileen:
Kris, you did a wonderful job on the fall fabric swap quilt! Diane & Marie are right about your ability to pick the right fabrics - the tan leaf print & red sashing really set off the blocks very well :-)  Did you make enough for everyone?! LOL

Thanks Everyone for the nice comments on my quilt top. I really enjoy the process and this was fun to do. Makes me forget the aches and pains for a little while.

Anyone ever feel let down or sad when you finish? Maybe that's why I have so many WIPs.

Kim, love your cat lap quilt, very pretty.  As for your rescues, they are adorable and since you have three you're welcome to send Dukie to me anytime.

Kris:

Here's  my fall fabric swap quilt top:

 

Kris your quilt is beautiful and the fabrics are great together.  Love what you did with the shashing and corner blocks.  I'm curious, which fabrics did you add to the ones in the swap?   Sorry I didn't get into that swap but I did get into the Christmas swap, which reminds me to cut my fabric and get it into the mail.  Are you in that swap also?

He is my son's favorite. When JJ goes to bed Dukie goes with him and lays with him until he falls asleep. Once JJ is asleep Dukie comes in my room to tell me before he goes off for a midnight fill-up. If JJ has a bad dream and Dukie isn't back in his room Dukie will race back to check on him. I have never seen a cat bond like that to a person before.

That is so sweet.  I have seen dogs do that but never a cat.

Marie,

Thanks for the compliment. The "X" blocks in the centre are the swap fabrics. The setting fabrics I bought after the blocks were made. The sashing and cornerstone fabrics were in my stash.

I'm not doing the X-mas swap.

neither of my machines were willing to quilt this morning.  i hate it when they cop an attitude.   they would quilt perfect on a scrap,  then when i started a quilt they skipped and shredded the thread,  grrrr.   so i went online and a suggestion was to use the funny little foot with the spring on it.  so far i have bessie tricked into quilting.  we'll see how long that lasts. in the meantime, they were stressing me out so bad, my neck is killing me.   why do i put myself through this?  oh, that's right i love to quilt.  forgot that part for a moment. 

  one of sam's golf buddies stopped by this morning. his wife is a quilter.   he popped into my studio to pick up the paper he needed, and just stood there grinning like a fool.  looked like maybe he was relieved someone had more fabric than his wife.    men!         gini

Nana:

Diane and Carol

 This way the backing came out the same as it would have if I had done the whole quilt top at once.

nana~ That's what I'll do next time. I have alot of quilt tops done and I'll do the backing in sections....I already  cut strips of batting to use. I'll do it this way from now on. On the BOM you started in the center and QAYG in sections around it. It's a mess. I thought it was just me so I'm glad to know that Carol has the same problem. Sorry Carol!

Gini~

Don't you hate that? And you had your day set to quilt. It's not fair!  Machines aren't dusty in the bobbin area are they? Those little dust balls cause all kinds of mischief.

No but I am going to the Georgia Quilt Show, Oct. 14 - 16 at Gwinnett Center.  Are you going to that Cindy? I will be going on Sat. the 16th so my BF who still has a JOB can go with me.

Yes, I have some that I just didn't want to finish. I was like that with the Boxy Stars. I thoroughly enjoyed making that quilt and it came out good with no problems. It's in my UFO pile to be sandwiched and quilted.

I definitely hate for a book to end. I finished the Quilters Apprentice the other night and have spent the last two days on Amazon ordering more. I've got up to book 6 coming. Some for .19 cents. I really like the series.
