The horses is from a pattern origionally published as "Big Blossom Quilt"
The oriental one is my our creation, inspired by a book published in the '70's. Since my orginazation is so poor, can't find it at the moment. It used focus squares and common setting squares. Have used that book lots.

Rob - your trivets are marvelous. I looked up the instructions and immediately said "nope, not for me". It must have taken ages to wrap fabric around the clothesline. But if you wanted to make me a couple in your spare time....

Rob - I love those trivets you made. Now I want to make some, oh, guess not. Goes against my promise to not start anything new. Maybe just one won't count. . .

There was a "Sewing with Nancy" (RIP) I saw a few weeks ago and she was just using colored thread and the clothesline...no fabric wrapping...

Here’s a pic of finished UFO. 797c0f5e-4e66-48c9-910f-d8e0fb08f4e9.jpegThis is at least 7 years old, it was a bom. My second one 16b3c8bb-0479-40d8-9912-eb159e1ad5b2.jpegis my 2.5” log cabin, after I made an adjustment to 16 blocks to get the center design. Many squares were from swaps on the board. Both quilts were quilted by a Laq. I used the tutor from this board for the 2.5” log cabin. That’s all for this month. My next projects will be smaller projects.

Way to go Happylab! Two fantastic finishes. I love the fabric choices on the first—who designed the wavy fabric with flowers— it reminds me of Jane Sassaman.

happylab....great finishes. The LC layout is my favorite way to do LC with squares. I also use the tute from this board.

Rryder, LOVE the trivets! Great job Toot, Toot for your two UFO finishes!

I bought all the clothesline last year (or maybe the one before that) and pulled my long thin scraps out of the scrap bin and stuck them in a shoebox. Then put the whole shebang on the table with the vintage Kenmore and....you guessed it. There they sat waiting for me to just do the things. They ended up being a lot of fun to make, so I don't know why I waited for so long. I still have enough clothesline for 4 more, so I'm thinking they'll make some nice Christmas presents for the folks who are hard to buy for! And that will also finish up 4 UFOs in December!

I also put the felting attachment on the PQ1500s and got busy felting up some of the 14 year old bags of wool tops that I had been intending to use on a couple of UFOs. I spun all the yarn I wanted from them 14 years ago and they have been taking up space ever since. If I manage to get any finished pieces out of them I'll add them to the UFO total, for now, they're still unfinished...

So here's the two that count as November finishes.
