Fall Sewing

Hi there! How are you on this fall day?  It's warm here, kind of weirdly cloudy and humid, in the low 70s.  I even have the windows open.  After seeing snow pictures on Instagram I sometimes feel like I live in another world!

Celebrate the Seasons Pat Sloan
I finally got around to adding borders to my Autumn Stars Tablerunner. It's from Pat Sloan's Celebrate the Seasons book.  Pat and I are friends and she sent me her new Bonnie Lane fabric to play around with earlier this year.  It's a fun make, I had most of it done on my trip to see Nanette in September.  I really am bad when it comes to taking those last tiny steps to finish up a project!!  But I love how it turned out and it's perfect with the vintage tablecloth currently on my table. 

There's lots of fun projects in this book, big and small.  I like the options of smaller projects so I can finish myself.  I'm not an inspired machine quilter so I'll think on this, and examine the quilting of Pat's project a bit more before I get started. 
Isn't that pumpkin cute?  I was picked in a drawing for some pretty vintage sheets over on Alana's Instagram.  I was so lucky!  I have a small collection of vintage sheets that someday I will make into a quilt.  The fabrics are so soft and nice and I've seen so many lovely projects make with them.
I don't remember if I mentioned here that Frankie has moved back close by!  It's so nice to just say hey lets get together and not have to plan anything, we can just jump in the car and meet up in 15 minutes (or so)  door to door.  Fun!
Hope you're all doing well. xop

Lovely table runner and it looks great on your table. I just love small projects which I can finish in a reasonable amount of time.

That does look great with the tablecloth! Our daughter lives close by us as well and I agree how lovely it is to be able to visit without significant travel and planning.

Beautiful table runner - and yes, perfect with your vintage tablecloth. I keep admiring Pat's Tulip Quilt - love the heart in the centre. Enjoy making more of these lovely patterns.
So happy Frankie lives closer now - family time is the best :)!

I have that book of Pat’s too. I am kind of the opposite. I still love to do big projects but mostly quilt by check unless it’s straight line or grid. And how lovely to have Frankie nearby, 2/3 rds of mine close enough to see when ever but the third takes me up to Mt View.
