It's been awhile...

Hello all,

How have you all been? Fall is here in N Cal. We got a good rain storm the other day which helped put out fires. The air is smelling almost fresh and clean again. The leaves on the black oak are changing colors, everything is so pretty.

These are photos my dd has taken.

The colors are so rich and beautiful against the pure blue sky.

I've been meaning to take pictures of the 2 pillows I made to go with my dd's kitty quilt. But I still haven't done it. So I wanted to at least show you the finished Kitty quilt, hanging on the outside of her room. She has a porch here with a couch.

I choose a deep red for the binding, it matches the insides of the flowers perfectly.

Lately I've been quilting on my stepson's wedding quilt. He was married at the end of Sept, so I am not too very late. I made the binding yesterday, so now I just have to attach it, and then I can get it sent off to them. I'll make sure to snap a picture to share here, before I send it off.

I'm starting to think about Christmas, it's going to be here before we know it. Does anyone have some fun, interesting projects you are making for Christmas gifts? If so, please share links, I would love to see them... and maybe get a few ideas from you :)

Take care.

  1. Your kitty quilt is sew pretty! I bought that kit when it went on clearance but so far have just looked at the fabric. The kitty is much larger than I expected. I like the design changes you made to the background.
    Looking forward to photos of the pillows when you have time. Happy quilting ... :-) Pat

  2. Nice to 'see' you Dorian! Kitten quilt is awesome!

  3. I'm glad I decided to check blogs today! :-) Great job on the kitty quilt. I know dd loves it! Can't wait to see the pillows....AND the finished wedding gift!


  4. Your DD has a good eye - those photos are wonderful! So glad you are once again enjoying blue skies and that the fires have been extinguished.
    Your kitten quilt is amazing and intimidating! And as for Christmas...it's sneaking up on us, isn't it? I don't think I'm making much this year - just some pot holders and pillowcases. Not very exciting, but always requested. :)

  5. Oh, my, that kitty quilt!! That's really an amazing design. I'll bet your dd loved it!


Your comments make my day :)
