Saturday Morning Post ~ Kelly, Phoebe and Jill

This is Autumn Daze, a quilt made by Kelly for Honey Run Quilters that will be going to PIQF this October. Posted on a new Facebook page that is still in the works and now here on the blog. Kelly picked up this beauty on Thursday morning. 

Made good progress this month with one more quilt on my frame to finish out August. This will be the first month in about a year that there will not be any, not one! quilt on 'the list' carried over to the next month... Yea! It's a great feeling. 

Can't get too excited tho, the list is still booked until April of 2016 with September and October full to capacity with quilts that were 'put off' while I was taking care of my Mom. November is our guild's quilt show, lots of quilts to be finished for the show and quilts for the holidays. Busy, busy, busy! 

Ever so grateful for so many wonderful quilters 
that entrust their quilts to my care and quilting. 
Thank you!   

back to Kelly's quilt ...
 Love those little fussy cut cornerstones and the care taken for the layout
Great backing, all the fabrics are, of course, available at Honey Run Quilters :0)
 Quilting design is called Solar
using two colors of Omni thread from Superior Threads.
Vanilla Wafer for the top and Hazelnut on the backing.
Even the thread names say Autumn!
Thank you Kelly

A few more finishes... two for Phoebe
Phoebe is one of the Scrappy Queens from Goldie's Scrap Happy Days :0)

who must be pulling from her purple, teal and blue baskets to make both of these quilts!

Snowball Nine Patch which was fun to set up a repeated e2e in the blocks
One of my favorite options and layouts to set up these daze.
Creates a custom look at an e2e price :0) Win! Win!

Both quilts were quilted with Fantastico variegated threads
this one backed with an Omni thread in Blue Turquoise

Close up of Phoebe's first one... quilted with Rapunzel e2e
 Definitely a fun design and a favorite 
Thank you Phoebe! 

Also finished and picked up this week are quilts for Betty posted here
and Cool Beans quilted for Claudia posted here

Plus one for Jill whom I haven't quilted for in exactly a year this month.
A Baseball Baby quilt made with great baseball fabrics and a panel
Quilted with Star Bright using a Fantastico variegated thread in red, white and blue.
It worked!
and the perfect backing fabric!
Nice! Glad to see Jill is back to quilting. Jill's home was flooded when we actually had one big rain storm last year that flooded Los Molinos. She lost allot of fabric along with a king size quilt she was working on. After a summer of repairs and replacements for their home, she is happily back at her machine! In fact, she took up half of February on the list! 
Thank you Jill!
Speaking of rain, we have a weird little storm moving thru early this morning with just a little bit of rain, yes, just enough to muddy up the dust on the cars! It's just getting light out and the ground is dry again already. The clouds are keeping the heat in so it's also warm and humid. Chico hit triple digits again this week, hopefully the last for the summer as this system promises to bring some cool temps. Looking forward to that and the coming of Autumn, my favorite season! Yea!!!
Enjoy your weekend
Make some time to take some stitches!
Tot Ziens, Jo
