Applique and Quilting

Fall Harvest (scrappy baskets), Murrieta Stars – Flannel

On Tuesday night I managed to finish the 2nd border on Fall Harvest – refolded the quilt top and got to work on the red leaf in the corner beginning the 3rd border!  If it wasn’t for the hand quilting I would be done by now!

Murrieta Stars got a little bit of work done on it also and more lines marked.

Well be working on this section last night – tried to adjust the color and have it almost right!

    Wonderful quilting and progress on your applique. A little bit here and there and it’ll get done, won’t it? It’s suppose to get to 90 today, the first time ever in November, how funny.
    I’ve started working on the 6th point of my hexie star, slowly but surely! Enjoy your stitching today!

      supposed to be in the high 70’s here – I wonder if it will do it – 70 right now – weather always back and forth!

    Love how your appliqué border is coming along…and the quilting on Murietta Stars is looking great!
    We are having a warm day in Virginia as well…I am ready for cool weather to get here!
    I haven’t done any stitching for probably a couple of weeks….I am clearing out some cabinets and closets and getting things boxed up for donation.. It is amazing how things have accumulated over the years! It is silly to hang on to these things that will never be used again when someone else may be able to use them….
    We ended up with about 35 kids coming by on Halloween….we never know how many we will get…sometimes it is just a few, other years a ton of kids come by… So we have a lot of candy left over! A lot of it is going in the freezer and we will eat it over a period of time…

      yes I clear out my closets twice a year and give them away I always have too much in it that I do not use. Very warm here to today – we had to drive to next large town over for a dental specialist ap for Mike today and it was 84 there – I so wish I had my sandals on to keep my feet cool we got home and it was 80 here still too warm!
