Time for the Patchwork Times #11 September UFO reveal . Luckily I was able to complete my quilt - actually my long-arm quilter, http://insanelycheapquilting.blogspot.com/
was able to complete the quilt a couple months back.
How was that for forward thinking...
This is called Amish Squares and currently resides in Colorado with DD Monica, who gave me this wonderful kit one Christmas several years ago. I made this and it remained my UFO for several years, which was way too long and is why it made "the list.". It went to the long armers with five others.
The quilting made it the beauty that it is now and I just thought that it just might be perfect as a re-gift for Monica. She really likes it, so guess I was right on that one
. Don't you just love surprising people?
A couple of other small finishes are ...
Finally got my donut pincushion made for my Masterpiece Thread bobbins holder. Guess I just needed to wait until http://www.pieceocake.com/
put them on sale - works for me and the kit had the wool and crushed walnut shells in it. This is the thread I use for all of my applique.
Another project I had that was wanting attention. I call this my "eye candy" sewing kit and holds all my hand stitching stuff - besides, it looks kinda pretty just sitting there.
Fall snuck in and I was unprepared -
everything that is Fall has been packed so what is a person to do...
I made a table topper - as I really did not want to unpack any boxes and that is what quilter's do.
Stars for John'aLee - see previous blog post - all mailed off for her quilts.

A tote/bag I have been wanting to try was a perfect size for a sofa quilt I was gifting. I got the pattern from Amanda Murphy Design http://amandamurphydesign.blogspot.com/2010/09/ambrosia-bag
and this is for a very special friend. I think she will really like it.
This is Ruthie - our frog which was a gifted to us when my friend, Ruth, moved to New York.
She is a loyal companion and a reminder of all the fun times we have with Ruth - wish she would come for a visit.
YOU is kind, YOU is smart, YOU is important!
From the movie, The Help
and I have plans to use these words. Wait and see.
Wishing you a wonderful Fall journey - Judy C
