Welcome Fall

Ahhhh, what an awesome day!  The kids are back in school today, the sun is shining this morning and all is well.  My husband is out the door to get the combine all ready for harvest.  I love this time of year,  I am dreaming of fall quilt projects to work on, but have came up with nothing yet.  A small table topper in fall colors, an applique wall hanging with pumpkins, hmmmm.....After a few chores I plan on sitting out on the deck and stitching the afternoon away.  Maybe then I will decide on my fall project.

A little peek at what I have been working on.... 
I am working on a mini quilt.  It is one of the challenges at Small Quilt Talk, a group that is run by Kathleen Tracy.  I believe it has to be completed by October 4, so I am doing good for time.  I actually cut enough to make 24 star blocks!!  I could make at least 3 mini's!!  Not sure on the layout yet, but I am working on a few ideas.  For now I will just keep making star blocks.  They are super quick to whip up if you have everything cut and ready*  Stay tuned for the finished projects.

Is this not the cutest little block ever!  I have recently signed up for a BOM at a great little quilt shop in Calgary AB.  This is a Lynette Anderson BOM, and for anyone not familiar with her work you should check out her blog at - lynetteandersondesigns.typepad.com. The small blue birdhouse is actually a little hand painted button!!  Each of the blocks in this BOM will have a cute little hand painted button on it, along with embroidery and a little applique.  What a great mix of my favorite things :)

Well I better get out and feed the animals. I am sure they are all wondering where I am this morning.  Oh and I think the washing machine just finished, so I have towels to go hang on the line! 

Just another day on the farm!

Peace,  Cindy


  1. You're finished that stithery already!? HOLY MOLY! Great job!

  2. WOW, it looks great I can't wait to see the finished project.

    The little bird one is awesome. I cannot believe that you have completed that already.


  3. Stars and basket quilts are among my favorites. Especially the Sawtooth Star pattern like you are working on.

  4. I love your little button block. I signed up for this BOM too and have 3 waiting to stitch. I need another day in my week. ;) Yours came out fantastic.
