Quick Project

Today I finished a quick project, a fall table runner from a Quilting Daily email. It's made from 5" squares and goes together very quickly. Straight line machine quilting and a folded over backing to bind the edges made for an easy finish. It looks good with my felted pumpkins and acorns!

Home Is Where the Quilt Is

In early October I went to the Sewing and Quilt Expo. This year's expo was very enjoyable. I missed it last year, so it was like a breath of fresh air - exceptional quilt displays and a great variety of vendors, different from the usual quilt shows. Here are a few pictures of "Home is Where the Quilt Is"; these house-shaped quilts will be auctioned in November to support the work of The Alliance for American Quilts. The auction begins on Nov.12, with a different set of quilts offered each week for 4 weeks.
