Happy Thanksgiving.  My family was at my home and we had a wonderful day!
Easy Panel quilt for one of the many baby quilts due this next month

Another baby quilt that is fun.  I wish I'd put white between the piano keys, but that will be for the next one.  I have a few of these panels.
I love this quilt.  So easy to make, and I can see the baby and his brother laying on the floor playing with trains on this quilt.  This went to special Girl Scout friend that has been a leader with me for a few years.   
A few of the Girl Scouts went and decorated at the inpatient pediatrics ward at the San Antonio Area Medical Center (SAAMC) - it used to be Brooke Army Medical Center (BAMC)  DD is taller than the tree.  LOL

I am working on a NYE Mystery that I should have already had tested.  :(
I'm also quilting another UFO that is going to our 93 year old aunt in California.

I made a couple of other things, but forgot to take a photo of them.  :( Hate it when I do that.

Stash report

Not had much stash using or reporting lately.  So, let's just say I've been lacking in reporting.
I changed my goal to 200 yards, and I have used 158.21 yards this year.
November I've only used 6.12 yards.  I would really like to have used lots more, but will be happy with this.

red hatters

We had a nice turnout today. 
Happy Thanksgiving Pot Luck today, and we ate really well.


After many hours of piecing batting and backing, this customer quilt is done.  Did loops in variegated blues and then the center has loops with hearts. Hope Karen likes it.

Another customer quilt.  This one was fun to play with.  I tried the new technique for me in the 4 patches (don't know what it is called) and did feathered hearts in the white space.  It was a fun quilt to quilt.
 Had a run on customer quilts this month.  This fun quilting went very quickly.  It was done with variegated tans and golds
Another customer quilt.  First Christmas quilt to quilt this season.  :)  Love this design.  I used the same thread on it as the brown quilt, but it looks totally different.
One of my own.  LOL First baby quilt finished.  Just realized I don't need 3, I need 4 by the end of December.  What was going on 9 months ago????  Very simple quilt, but I love it.
I'm working on some of my own quilts, but have not finished many yet.  Hoping that soon I will get some mojo going and all will work well for me.

Been busy

DD and a fellow Girl Scout are working on projects together.  One pillowcase, one pillow are finished.  Took a bit to get the rotary cutter to be safely used.  :) They enjoyed it and so did I. (if anyone knows how to turn a photo to get it going the right way, please let me know.)

Last night had Cleopatra, Master Wizard and witchy helping at a church Fall festival.

this quilt was given to the DREAM FACTORY for a silent Auction.  This is to help with their sponsorship.

 Making place mats for ME!  I'm finally making them.  Had them ready for years, but finally working on them.  I need to finish sewing them together.
Our wonderful Red Hat Buffalo Girls

These are the latest QOVs I've quilted.  QOV #100 and QOV #101
