A Quick Note

It's coming on the first of November, the month where we celebrate Thanksgiving.  Through all these trying times, this might be a good time to reflect back on 2020 and look for the things that we can be thankful/grateful for.  Make a few notes so as we move into the shorter and colder days, we can look at those notes when we need a little lift.  Or go online and look at pretty quilts.  I had to refold and go through my quilts and thought I'd just share a few of my favorites.

Hand quilted pre-printed panel

A mini version of my Cheddar Stars.  Machine quilted

This is all about the border fabric.  American Jane prints and I was obsessed.  I made this start to finish in a very short time as I worked exclusively on this once I started.

My Sarahs Revival blocks so far.  Back basted, needle turn applique.  Only 24 more to go. (one is missing from photo)

An oldie that has languished.  This is hand appliqued, marked, and basted.  The center feathered wreath has been quilted and ripped out, along with some outline quilting.  I've regrouped on my quilting ideas and it is sitting out so it gets into my queue.



 
This sampler was done in about 2003 and it resides at my sisters house. I couldn't resist snapping a few pictures of it while I was there in Sept. 
This was a finish from earlier this year. I switched up the pattern on the border and this is the first time I have done an all over quilting motif right through the piecing and appliqued blocks. 
Here are my quilts all folded up and organized.  Yes, I fold them right side in, as I do not want the fronts to fade along the fold lines.  I know every quilt by it's back, so it doesn't take much to sort for various trunk shows.  The rest of my quilts are layered on the spare bed at home.  These are at my 'other' quilting space. 

Somehow the formatting has gotten away from me, and honestly, I just don't have the desire to spend the time to fix it.  It's a blog, not a quilt block!  That I would take the time to fix.

Keep stitching, stay safe and mask up!

I always love seeing your quilts! If we looked at all the negatives of this year we'd all be weeping.

I found it easier to post on my blog from the html version!! Did it by accident this morning.

Thanks for this little show and tell. You make beautiful quilts.
One thing I have learned the past months is to even appreciate the little things in life so much more.

Love your little show and tell, Sharon...you make such beautiful quilts! I've done my best to see the beauty and the positive throughout this year! Enjoying time with two of my grandsons, taking pictures of flowers, trees, and the beautiful bay view we have here! Staying home is keeping me busy with sewing new quilt projects. I have several going at once, which is really unusual for me!
