New Fun Projects for Winter

Harvest has started in my part of the world so I will be working long hours and won't get much quilting done for the next few months. I have been doing some sewing before work but not as much as I would like, so I am looking ahead to winter and getting my projects lined up. Below is "Golden Memories" by Lori Smith. I have loved this pattern for quite a while now and so I decided it would be fun to do when the snow is flying. These warm colors really appealed to me.

These are some of the main fabrics I will be using for this quilt. A few pieces I already had but the ones on the left I picked up this last weekend. I just love the colors.

Next is the Web Samplet quilt. I picked the finishing kit from Common Threads because of the applique. I think it looks wonderful with the blocks surrounding it.

And finally, this is what I am working on now before work. It is "Sherman's March" from Bonnie Blue Quilts. There are tons of small pieces to this quilt but it will be stunning when it is done. It really goes fast once you get all the pieces cut. :D
Last but not least, I want to thank all you wonderful ladies that comment on my blog. I haven't had much time to get back and thank you all for stopping by, and for that I apologize. Don't have time at work to get this task done and the evenings I have to fight hubby for the computer. LOL He is in the other room this evening and so I took advantage of this opportunity to get a post in. Again thank you!
That is all for now. So many blogs to check out, so little time!

I love the Golden Memories quilt!
But, please, don't mention the "snow flying". Oh, my, I don't even want to think about that!

Thank you for selecting our "Sherman's March" quilt for one of your winter projects. It is one of my favorite quilts and will go together very nicely. Good luck and happy piecing. I hope you don't have too much of that snow stuff.

I especially love the *Golden Memories* quilt! They all are yummy fabrics! I am more of a one-project-at-a-time kind of girl. Mostly because I dont have much work space...
Cant wait to see the progress on these quilts!

You've got a great start for winter projects. Those are some beautiful fabrics for you Golden Memories quilt. My that is a wonderful pattern. I love Lori Smith's patterns.

I used to work at a grain elevator so I understand completely how limited your time will be for a few months. Many weeks of 10+ hour days at least 6 days a week. Side note: it did seem however, that it was that time of year my husband and I had our biggest disagreements due mostly to the fact that I was never home.
But there was just something exciting about watching the harvest come in. I loved it! That and all the bs with the farmers and truckers was a little up my alley too! :)

You have some lovely projects ready to go as we settle into the fall and then those dreaded winter weather months.
I can relate to the me vs him time on the computer. Same here. Basically DH parks in front of the computer all evening, swiveling around to watch a little TV now & then. And since I basically work full time (& he's retired), my computer time is ??
Oh well -- just gives me more time to focus on quilting.

I love the ambition you show to plan such awesome projects for the winter. The colors are beautiful. I am anxious to watch for updates once harvest is finished. Our leaves are beginning to turn in Northern Wisconsin and geese are gathering.

These projects are wonderful, you are so busy but seem to make good use of your time. You have made some gorgoes quilts, I need to go back and have a good look through your lovely blog.

Jean said...
