Daffycat Day TUSAL check in for October

Wow, that's been a fast month!  Here it is 'New Moon' time already!

This is a little glass basket that a friend gave me filled with this month's ORT's...

You can see the other TUSAL ORT containers through the links on Daffycat's blog.

This was a cute little quilt that I quilted for a friend.

I did finish the third panel of my "Over the River and Through the Woods" quilt - now I'm planning the borders and spaces between the panels, because the original quilt would be too large for my quilt rack - I need to 'reduce' it a bit and still make it look as much as the original Crabapple Hill design as possible.
pattern  -  as designed
They have several other embroidery designs I'd love to try - but so many projects are already in line first....

but this Which Witches Boot is definitely on my bucket list!

I've quilted 10 baby/kid quilts for Quilts for Kids this past week...similar to the one pictured above... just the quilting, mind you - these tops were all made by the busy hands of the Quilt Company East Quilt Guild of Churchill, PA - and they will all be doing the bindings on these quilts as well...  but it's still a good feeling to have them all quilted in time for our meeting on Monday evening!  Now, there's no way I'll bore you with 10 very similar quilt pictures...  trust me!

I've also made a couple of these little zippy totes with the NewBee class... look for the tutorial to be posted here soon...

 notice the Patience Corner block in the center!

I spent a lovely day with friends Priscilla and Mary enjoying the Coverlet Museum in Bedford, plus a terrific lunch at the Jean Bonnet Tavern and a stop at a quilt shop with wonderful fall foliage all along the way!

we also stopped at the Flight 93 Memorial Chapel to see the quilted banners:

that's it for now - I need to get back to the studio!
see you again soon!
