Easy Things

Although I'm still a wee bit croaky, I'm well enough to enjoy sewing again. I went to Friday Quilters at The Golden Gese quilt shop on 22 Liberty Street in Concord, New Hampshire.

Maureen was there working on her sashing stars patriotic quilt from Missouri Star Quilt Company.

Those stars are a solid blue, not black and they look terrific!

Sue, below, was celebrating a birthday this week and was putting the finishing touches onto an adorable Halloween wall hanging. So cute!!

I cut, laid out, and pinned a pair of Sausage Roll pillowcases in some fabrics that came in from Hancock's Of Paducah, seen below. That's a Judie Rothermel floral from her Dressing Gowns line by Marcus Brothers Textiles and the pink is a Karen Styles called Loire Valley.

When I got home, I did do a few more red and brown quadrant units for Starstruck from the Bonnie K. Hunter free patterns tab. Thank you, Bonnie! Link.

This is what a block would look like, but I'm not assembling them yet.

Of course, that meant pinwheels from the bonus triangles, wheeee!

Lastly, I wanted to share with you an idea that's only semi-quilty. I took a vase of hydrangeas and bachelor buttons to my neighbor but the vase seemed a little blah. Sewing up a width-of-fabric two inch wide ribbon and top stitching it for a bow made all the difference!

Now if I could only get my Fall bittersweet wreath finished, too!
