My Fall Quilt

Happy Pink Saturday everyone!  Please be sure you stop by Beverly's How Sweet The Sound and check out all the other blogs too.  There are some awesome ones. Stop by and see Dee at Creative Crafting & No Sew Projects she's got some awesome videos and how to's to show you.

This is a picture of my "Fall Quilt" that I was so determined last year to make for myself.  I got it this far and fiinally got it on the frame the other day.

The churn dash in the block is actually a little oranger than it is the gold it shows in the photo.  I'm very happy with the way it's come out though.  I hope by this week end I'll have it quilted and then get the binding on it and use it! yaaaay!    lol   I've got to get busy on my grandson's black and white quilt.  He asked me for one earlier this year and I'm hoping to have it done for him by Christmas.  If not his 18th birthday is in March I'll have it for him then.    The goal is Christmas though.  I have a number of baby quilts to make for the Mozaic Church nursery.  I've lots of fabric for kids so they should come out pretty good, it's just a matter of finding the time to make them:)   Have a Happy Pink Saturday everyone and a Blessed week end.:)

Hi Candi...I'm so glad you visited my Featured Pink Saturday post today on CollectInTexas Gal...so I could return the visit. I'm always so excited to find another Pinkie Quilter and, a Long Arm Quilter to boot. I'm one, too! It was my business for fifteen years until I retired. I owned a quilt shop and now quilt for myself at home...got lots of UFO's!

Your ChurnDash quilt is so pretty and I love the floral print you used as the background. I'm getting ready to put on a couple of Christmas tops to quilt for gifts. Seeing yours makes me want to get in there and get busy quilting. Hope to see you again!

Lovely quilt! You are doing one better than me. My quilt hasn't made it to the frame yet. Always customer quilts coming first, sigh!

Hope your friend makes it through cancer free with the chemo. My grandmother died of ovarian cancer, so the awareness is there for me especially.
