Better late than never. :)

I finally made the September Count on It banner! I figure it's still September, so I'm really not late, right? I love these little banners and they really don't take much time.
And look! I also finished October's ahead of time! Yay me!! If you are familiar with this book, you'll see this is not the original design for October. The pattern in the book was black bats, and since I don't really decorate for halloween, I wanted something more fall-ish. My inspiration came from another pattern I own by Country Threads. Which reminds me...I really should finish that up for fall too.

This week I finally added the borders to my Patchwork Party quilt. Next, it's time to get it quilted....I'm a little nervous to tackle something like this! I'll keep you posted!

Happy Quilting!

  2. Those all look fantastic. If you look at my blog and search for "fall decorations" you will see a few of my pumpkin quilts. What book did you get the monthly quilts from?

    Yours are sooo cute!

  4. I love those banners! I would love to start making some of those....looks like I will have to add that to my list! LOL! Like you, I'm not much into decortating for Halloween. But FALL is my favorite time of year and I love FALL colors!

    I'm in love with that quilt!! It is truly beautiful! I think all of those flying geese just really sets it off perfectly! LOVE IT!

  5. OOOO...maybe I'll be lucky enough to see you work on that quilt a little bit on Tuesday? As for the banners, I do love them and I know I asked you the name of the book, but I forgot what it was now. :( They look really cute on that display stand, too.

  6. Your banners look great. I like your choice for October better than bats. My Halloween decorating consists of Jack-o-lanterns (happy ones) and scarecrows. That is as far as I am willing to take it. The rest is fall stuff
    That Patchwork Party quilt is beautiful. I love everything about it. I enlarged the photo and just stared at it. Excellent job!

  9. Everything is lovely, as always, Michelle. And I have to giggle because you always say you "finally" got one thing or another done, but the truth is you are one of the most prolific quilt-makers I know!

  11. Your quilt is stunning!!! The sashing and the flying geese really dress it up. Tons of room to play with the quilting, can't wait to see it done!

  12. Did you save the pattern for your October quilt? I got the book this past weekend at a quilt show and like your design a lot better than the bats.

    Where did you get your display table top "holder"??

    Thanks!!
