I have been trying very hard to get my BOM finished before Carol   Although, there wasn't any reason, I just wanted to beat her!  OK, I might be a little competitive. However, she normally finished her blocks before me!.   However, mine is quilted and the binding is done!  TA DA:

Here is block #12 of the Pennsylvania Dutch BOM from the Fat Quarter Shop.  I have pieced all of the blocks, sewn two borders on and have the next two borders ready.  Will send pics of the finished quilt after this weekend.

Got a cute email today about a senior's halloween.  But this is the only image that I was allowed to upload--go figure!  I have two of the four borders on my Pennslyvania Dutch BOM quilt--should have it completed this week-end.

I also got a call from my twin today (actually my cousin, who is 4 months younger than I am.  But, we look more alike than my sister and I).  She will be celebrating her 30th anniversary on November 6.  They are going to renew their vows and then have a small family reception.  It's a 5+ hour drive, but I think that she deserves it.  PLUS, I can see my sister and my son.  WHOOPEE.!.  West side quilt shops, here we come!

There used to be a bouncing pumpkin here, BUT IT WAS DRIVING ME NUTS so I have to cut it up to make pumpkin bread.  Rest in peace little buddie!

Good afternoon!  It has been a good day.  I played golf this morning--shot so-so(I paid my golfing partner $0.80.  I am still up $1.40 for the season!).  I quilted a pinwheel halloween quilt that I have been working on. It is 38" x 38", so I will use it as a table topper.   We watched Texas kick ass to the Yankees while I sewed on the binding. 

We just finished supper--swiss steak, the dishes are done and we are watching the Phillies vs the Giants. 

I have also finished the last two blocks of my Pennsylvannia Dutch BOM and will start the finishing process tomorrow.

 I have about 10 minutes before supper is ready and I wanted to get these pictures posted. I did not play golf this weekend--there was a two day tournament that had a full field. So, I stayed home, watched the Ryder Cup, college football, proball and sewed and quilted to my hearts content. I must say, that I am feeling so much better with my new bff-CPap that I am almost giggly!  The first two quilts I got from the Moda Bake Shop.  They are small table toppers, "Candy Bar Pinwheels", designed by Doug Leko from Antler Design.

I used Deb Strain's "Saltbox Harvest"

I used Moda's "Origins" for this one.

I used several 2 1/2" strips of autumn fabric for the last one.  It is lapsize.  

Ha, and you thought I just sat around all weekend!  Oops!  I almost forgot--I made Halloween Sugar Cookies, bats, black cats, and pumpkins.  So cute and so gone!
