This is a quilt my mom has been working on. At the time of this photo it was a Work In Progress. I believe it is done by now, but I don't have any pictures of the finished project... (I will post as soon as I have one!) The pattern used is the same pattern I am working with on the Cider Mill quilt. This particular quilt is very tedious to put together! She got hers all done--I'm soooo jealous!

Well I finally put together my memo board. This one uses a canvas instead of foam board or other material. I had to buy a staple gun to finish the project. I thought it turned out pretty cute. But I am considering putting it in a frame...

Life has been so unbelievably hectic this summer! But I managed to finish this Fall quilt just in time for Fall. It's a drizzly day here in the NW so it's perfect timing! Time to start lovin' on that quilt! I started working on this one back in late May/early June... I thought it turned out very pretty! The inspiration for this quilt came from the border fabric. The blended Autumn colors were so eye-catching. I used 22 different fabrics in this quilt. It is very fat-quarter friendly. In fact, with the 22 different colors I ended up with enough extra fabric cut out for the leaves that I could almost create another one. It was actually quite mind-boggling to try to put together! For every row that was stitched I had to plan out the next row because of the exchange of fabrics for each block. Crazy! I saw this pattern online somewhere and mathed the measurements out.. The quilting on this one was totally random. I didn't use any pantos--it all came from me wee little brain.. lol

It's done! It's done!! All I have to do is write up the directions and pattern and package it up to sell now! I had so much fun with this quilt. It is being gifted to my great nephew next weekend. I wish I could make a few changes on it... If I could I would make the trunk on the elephant a slightly darker color of thread. I think that would make it pop! And if I make this pattern again I might change the colors of the churn dash 'frame' around the animals and make each of them a different color.
