Marlene has been a quilting maniac over the summer! I think she's on a mission to diminish her fabric stash (haha - we all know that that never happens!) - here are three of her projects from over the summer.
Colourful Stars Quilt - Hearts in Bloom panto; Glide thread; Hobbs Heirloom Wool batting
Vintage Roses Quilt - Ribbons and Roses panto; Glide thread; Hobbs Heirloom Wool Batting
Embroidered Butterfly Quilt - Freehand Butterfly Wings; Glide Thread; Hobbs Heirloom Wool Batting
I am excited about making "string quilts" from my bins of leftovers! Here's a photo of my first one - it has a very autumn feel about it, doesn't it.

These last two pictures are an example of how beautiful the tamarack(larch) trees are when the needles are turning colour in the fall . . . taken at Kimberley, BC in October, 2014.
Happy Halloween from the Little House!
