Moving Along with Jane

My Modern Dear Jane is moving along nicely. I still have some completed square and triangle blocks to upload pictures of and I'll have a dozen more blocks to add to my virtual wall by next week.

That will leave me with just 39 square blocks, 29 triangles and 2 Kites left to finish. I'm starting to feel more confident that I'll make it to the finish line! (grin)

Of course -NO rest for long, as I still have to complete my Civil War Jane too!

Vintage Rouge is Finished!

Boy, 6 months have really flewn by! October is our final month of the Vintage Rouge sew-along. I've had a wonderful time posting the monthly tutorials to the Flickr group set up for those that participated in the BOM program.

There are 4 pieced and applique'd blocks in Month 6 - in addition to piecing the quilt top together and adding the fussy cut borders. Here is a picture of 2 of my 4 blocks for the month:

The very first picture shown above is a picture of my finished quilt top. It's hanging off a flannel wall (a bit smaller than the quilt top) I'm excited that it's ready to send off to a longarm quilter for completion. Looking forward to having this quilt on display this very holiday season.

THANK YOU to all who participated in this Sew-Along!

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!
