Hi Ladies,

Finally got a halfway decent connection so I will post here instead of individually.  Loving what everyone is doing with these last blocks.  Me?  I must have had a major brain fart when I cut kits!  Missing fabric on each one so won't be able to complete any of them until Nov when I get back to Texas.  Instead I am working on hand quilting the tumbling blocks quilt I brought too.

Enjoying Alaska, Today is sunny and beautiful.  We are 80 miles N of Valdez camped next to Squirrel Creek.  Sunday or Monday we will go to Valdez, probably for a week.  There's another quilt shop to check out, LOL!

Well Ladies. My top is complete. I had a hard time getting it photographed indoors so out on the lawn we went. I LOVE this.

Wow, Kris, that came out really cute.  I am so far behind. I haven't even touched my machine in MONTHS! I think May was the last time.  I hope to get back to it when the snow flies and I don't have to be out helping hubby with the landscaping or traveling.

Kris, your Halloween guilt is just wonderful.  Congratulations on getting it done.  Don't know when I will be ale to get back to quilting.  It's been so long, since about May I think since I sat down at a sewing machine.  Hopefully, I'll have my house ready to put on the market soon so I can get back to doing what I love doing best ...quilting!

Thanks Pat. My quilt is now complete; quilted and bound. When I get some better weather I'll take and post photos in my blog and the media folder for this group.

Wishing you well with the house so you can get back to sewing/quilting.
