    carriem - what a sweet surprise that is!

    michelleoc - great finishes! I've always wanted to try prairie points too... good idea to start small! I like the dramatic colors in your big quilt too.

    Scrappy Snowball is in the DONE! column... I really had fun quilting this one. I've been wanting to experiment with the serpentine stitch on my Juki F600 so gave it a try in the outer border. I'll definitely be using it again! This quilt is from the book "Quilts from the Heart" by Karin Renaud and it will be donated to Project Linus.

    Asimplelife: I am not stalking you, just in case you were worried. Love your snowball quilt. I would never have thought to put that beautiful stripe in the binding and the boarder but it is perfect for setting off the rest of the quilt, makes me really want to try one. Maybe using scrappy with fussy cut for the snowballs. Is the serpentine stitch a built in stitch on your machine?

    asimplelife--I like using the serpentine stitch as well but usually use a narrower st width to use in place of SITD. I really like how you repeat it in your border. Will have to try it this way too.
    Emma S--This is a common stitch on most newer machines--may also be called a 3 stitch zigzag.

    Emma S - No worries! Lol That border was a learning experience for me and I just love it... the pattern called for the background fabric which I no longer had so when I was looking through my stash for another white on white that stripe caught my eye. Then the stripe led to the pink pin dot which I would never considered for the outer border but it just all worked! I have a stripes section in my stash that I started buying for binding - but I loved the stripes as sashing in my ABC Charm Quilt and now again here as the inner border. Guess I'll start looking at stripes a bit more!

    oksewglad - Yes this is a built in stitch on my new Juki. I'm thinking about doing all vertical serpentine on one of my next projects now (athough not as dense as I did on this border)... I really like the texture. Great idea to flatten it out for SITD!

    asimple life. What great finishes. The colors you used are gorgeous. And I really love how you repeated the stripes in the binding on the snowball quilt. I have a couple of finishes for this month. Yay! Now the pressure is off in case I don't get anything else done...ha!Name:  DELL Venue Pro_000010.jpg

    Michelle: Absolutely love your Halloween quilt. I especially appreciate it because I am trying my hand at applique and I know how much skill it takes. The Marjory's website is outstanding. Thank you for the link.

    Way to go michelleoc and oksewglad! October has been a good month for finishes already!

    Here is my latest... Pandora's Box in Teal from the book "Jelly Roll Quilts" by Pam & Nicky Lintott. This is a double big ## finish - my #60 UFO Finish since 10/1/2012 and my 50th Finished Project for 2013.

    Awesome work Michelle. Love those quilts.
    Asimplelife, you are doing it. You are going to finish those UFOs this year. We are believing in you to reach your goal!
    Oksewglad, that is a lovely cake stand block quilt. Nice display. Look forward to seeing the tv work you are doing.

    oksewglad: love your quilts. They have a Civil War feeling. The fabrics are yummy!
    asimplelife: 50 finishes? Great job! I'd be hard-pressed to pick a favorite, all your work is so nice.

    Many Trips Around the World

    Here is my latest finish, Many Trips Around the World, a well-known Bonnie Hunter pattern. This pic really doesn't do it justice. The quilt is 98 x 98 and according to my calculations used 14.65 yards of fabric. I bought a wide back for it -- didn't have the patience to piece the backing for it -- but the top is all from stash.
