    Here are some recent projects!

    Stacked Stars you saw when it was a top. Now it is ready to be delivered.

    The autumn bed topper replaces my earlier spring tulip topper. You can see the tulip one peeking out on the edges.

    And the tree skirt is for a friend who requested a gingerbread treeskirt. She is paying me $60.00 which covers my materials and about 1/50th of my time. That baby was a time sucker!

    Very nice!!
    Tree skirts are a pain!
    I made one for a lady here. It has the submarine insignia embroidered on it. She absolutely loves it. I made it for her because she was having a "Scrooge" time last Christmas. Sure hope she doesn't contact me to make more!

    I thought that I could stop with the black fabrics but I had to add two more rows to make it big enough. Then because the gingerbread men were going to be hidden under the tree I had no choice but to add the applique. I did the blanket stitch last night while watching TV... I don't spend evenings in the sewing room cuz Paul gets lonely! LOL... I will be happy to stamp this one SOLD!

    I just love your fall quilts and christmas tree skirt. Very nice work, Mamagus.
    I know what you mean about the money not even begining to cover your time and expenses. It is a shame that materials are so much these days.

    I LOVE the Stacked Stars one! I would love to be able to do that one myself. I also adore your autumn bedspread.

    You can get the pattern from clotilde. Mine is changed a bit. You'll probably find star patterns in quilter's cache but this one is done in quarter star units so it can be stacked.

    Hello fellow Canuck
    They are beautiful - Love the Maple Leaf fabric. I have actually purchased the Star pattern & it will be one of my winter projects.
    Job well done

    Thanks everyone! I wish I could longarm them like you Jacquemoe!

    I finished quilting the autumn quilt today and I am pleased with the results. With colours changing here right now I am happy to be decorated for my favorite season!

    Here's a close up of some of the free motion I did. I am improving slowly, but I am happy with the results today!
