My favorite things...

This was a "freebie" quilt... During the summer, I joined a block of the week through Primitive Gatherings and every week when they sent my block, they sent along (for free) a freebie block. And this is what it made... I just love it. It's all made from wools.

She's all ready...

Ready to be quilted that's so big, it's kinda hard to take a picture of the whole's a picture of the quilt without the borders...even the husband couldn't hold it up without standing on a ladder..

Then here is a picture of the corners..

My husband told me. I should get it custom quilted and enter it in a show... I have one favorite lady who I just LOVE her work and got a quote from her... Her reply..." I charge $35.00 an hour and a quilt this size would take her 25-40 hours... EEEK! I can totally see how and why she would charge so much, her work is totally awesome and worth every penny... But silly me... Never in a million years would I spend $1,000 on a quilt to get it quilted..nope!

Fallen Heroes Quilt....

The Home of the Brave Quilt Project was started by Don Beld, a Citrus Belt Quilters (CBQ) guild member, in order to honor the fallen heroes in Iraq and Afghanistan by making replicas of a Civil War U.S. Sanitary Commission quilt.
Don was a speaker at our guild this past year and we decided to put together a Fallen Heroes Potholder Quilt.
This is a partial picture of the potholder quilt that our Fallbrook Quilt Guild put together.

Each quilt square was made into a individual finished square resembling a pot holder then they were all whip stitched together for a completed quilt.
Each block has a name on the front along with a summary on the back about each person.

It is just stunning to look at. I didn't get a picture the whole thing, too many people were admiring it.
Very moving to read their stories also. It will be on display at San Diego quilt show I believe, before we send it on.

Pumpkin quilt...

This is what I did my Labor Day weekend...I finished up the pumpkin quilt. Hahaha... Can you see Marks shadow behind the quilt? Pretty funny.. I just noticed it before I am hitting the publish button.
This was a block of the month I joined earlier in the year, and hopefully I will have it quilted before the Fall season comes. It will be here before we know it!

It was also Lolli approved...
