Whew - September was a whirlwind month! We had a wedding in the family, a freak September snowstorm - just before the OUTSIDE wedding, and just a lot of activity at the Little House.
Before I show you some quilting - have a look at some of the pictures I took in September - now these pictures are in chronological order - so you can see what we've been putting up with!
..... enough said about that!
on to quilting stuff . . .
Purples and pinks must be in this month - Alice and Jean both made quilts with these colours.
Alice's quilt is a Chevron style for her granddaughter. Hobbs 80/20 batting; Glide thread; Fluffy Clouds panto

Alice also quilted up a couple of Christmas table runners. Alice gave me enough backing for all these projects so I could load the backing and do all these quilts with just one loading - Thanks, Alice!
Alice's friend, Jean, is fairly new to quilting. Here's her quilt - she chose the same Fluffy Clouds panto, Glide Thread; Quilter's Dream Cotton batting.

I also put together a quilt for my son that I'd had on my list for a while. This pattern is "Power of Four" by Tony Jacobson. It was featured in Fons & Porter's Love of Quilting magazine (June 2013). In my ongoing effort to reduce my stash of fabrics (right!!) I used some of the leftover pieces to make some blocks to piece into the backing. Hobbs 80/20 batting, Glide thread, Bauhaus panto from Urban Elementz.
It was a perfect choice for this quilt - what do you think?

I've had this panel hanging around the Little House for a while - and I wanted to try the Animal Crackers panto on it . . . very cute! Hobbs 80/20 batting; Glide Thread; Animal Crackers panto

Like most quilters I know, I've got more than one project on the go . . . I've discovered "String Quilts" . . . that's for next time!
I think that's enough for one post - until next time - enjoy the fall weather from the Little House.
