As far as quilting is concerned, I am ready for a new project, all the old ones will wait for me, and these are the scraps I have decided to use up. I have a pattern by Kaye England that I think will be perfect for all these scraps from my "Crabapple Tree Quilt". I have sorted most of the scraps but as you can see I still have a pile in the top of the pix. This will be a perfect quilt to make during harvest season. I need to continue to sew to keep my sanity!! :D
The weather has changed to this wonderful fall feeling, cool in the early mornings and evenings and pretty warm during the day. What a great time of the year!
Happy quilting one and all!!!

Went on down toward our daughter's in Cincy, by way of a great Casino which spit out some nice cash to me from the slots before we left. Spent the night with family and then went south to the Quilt Box in Dry Ridge,KY. We have been there several times and always come out with a few civil war fabrics. The 6 folded FQ are what I got from there.
After having a great lunch we continued on back to Indiana stopping at a couple more shops and arrived home last night. We love going places but it sure is nice to sleep in your own bed again!

This table runner however has yet to be quilted. I am thinking about quilting it the old fashion way, by hand. It has been a long time since I have quilted by hand, and with this small project at least it won't be too hot to hold on my lap.
Anyone else working on Christmas projects??
