Fall Fun

Friday Quilters with Claire was great fun at the Golden Gese Quilt Shop on 22 Liberty Street in Concord, New Hampshire.

Maureen, seen below, was on a production-run of making up polyester fleece "infinity scarves" in Patriots designs for her Christmas list.

Here in New England, where witch hunts have always been popular, we all love Tom Brady, the Patriots Quarterback, and we know he was deliberately smeared by the National Football League.

But we still love our team and Coach Bill Belichick is the best. Just look at that stack of scarves! Go, team, go!

Maureen also used her embroidery machine to make a special Flamingo Block for Darlene's Breast Cancer Memorial quilt. Darlene would have loved this and she's looking down and smiling, I'm sure.

Our group bid a fond farewell to Sue, the snowbird, who will wend her way south to Florida for the winter. She has promised to return for some Christmas celebrations, so we'll see her then. Safe travels, Sue!

Sue's gray and turquoise zipper pouches, seen above, are going together beautifully.

I worked a wee bit on my "Lover's Knot" blocks in all neutrals, a project that has been stalled since last winter. Here, below, is an example of what they will look like.

High winds have been stripping the beautifully colored leaves from our trees, making sure that they will look good and spooky bare for Halloween on Monday.

Miss Emma Lynne can't wait for Halloween to get a new rawhide chew, yippee!!

But the kitties don't care, they are bored by it all.

Mr. Tipper was, however, willing to field test the cuddle quotient of a quilt left out to air.

He gave it a 7, but he's one of those hard judges that never gives out a perfect score of 10.

Enjoy your day and happy sewing!

I love that photo of your Fall color. Noticed it in your recent email and forgot to respond and tell you how pretty I think it is. : )
Emma Lynne does look excited!! And for that matter, Mr. Tipper definitely does not! *LOL*

As comfortable as Mr. Tipper looks I think he should have give it a 10! Love those neutral blocks. It's always sad to see the wind take the brightness of autumn. It won't be too long before snow flies.

Miss Emma looks so Happy! And Tipper is so content on Momma's quilt.
How we Love our Animals & would be lost w/o them.
Hugs, Debra

That Mr. Tipper is quite a critic. I'd give it a 10 for sure!

Janet said...

Mr. Tipper is indeed a harsh critic and I agree that he is hiding his true feelings. But we have seen through him as he is sleeping in obvious bliss. :0 Have a happy halloween. I bet it is fun in your neighbourhood.

Your neutral blocks are looking good, and I am looking forward to seeing it together!

Wow, Mr Tipper really IS a harsh judge!

Kat said...

Cute kitty!! I really like your neutral string blocks.

I am happy to see those neutral string blocks again. I can't wait to see a quilt made with them. Thanks for linking up with Oh Scrap!

Glad you are enjoying the fall weather, colors flying away too fast though. Cats seem to have built in magnets for quilts, the better to get in another nap. They are biased judges. It's a lovely quilt, smelling so clean and fresh.
