October Redwork and Shop Hop news

Here is the finished little girl for October. Just 2 months left and I will have a finished quilt top!

I really enjoyed making 2 of these blocks each month. (one for myself and one for my dear friend SUE) I had a ton of things going on the past few weeks and just never got around to completing the applique' border around little Miss September. At the end of this month I will be sure to share the finishes for my September and October blocks.

I DO have another small Fall finish to share today. Here is a picture of the little 26" square Table Topper that I made.

Last Thursday was the start of Central Virginia's Tour de Quilt shop hop. I was asked to create/design a "small" bonus project using the featured line of Tour de Quilt fabrics. It was the free pattern hand-out at Quilter's Corner - for those that participated in the Shop Hop.

The shop owner decided to sell "kits" of this project during Tour and I was pleased to learn that the kits flew off the shelf every day and on day 3 they ran out of fabric to make more of them. (she immediately ordered more fabric) lol

I was also honored to have been asked to play "Hostess" for 2 days on a tour bus filled with Quilters that participated in the Shop Hop. They were all truly the nicest, most LOVELY women. My friend Gretchen assumed the role of Bus Monitor and we all had a wonderful time!

every quilt tells a story....

  2. Your redwork is just darling. I can't wait to see the whole quilt. Love, love, love your dresden plate. It is so pretty. Now for those ladies on the bus....I think they really did some shopping as some of those bags look prrreetttyyyy heavy. Glad you had such a good time.
