Another mystery quilt

If you missed the Oct mystery quilt, and want to join the Gals at the Q&N in doing it again, we'll be having another mystery weekend this weekend! That's the 13th and 14th. You can buy the pattern here. It's another fabulous design! Would look gorgeous is Christmas colors.

Sign ups for our next Robin is coming to an end also. So if you want to join in that, come on over to the board and join us. This year it's going to be a row robin. We haven't done one yet, but it will be just as fun as ever. I love adding to someone else's work. It stretches the mind and sometimes makes you work outside your comfy box...which is a good thing.

On the home front. I am finally getting the hang of machine quilting! I don't have a long arm, just using my 1930's model White. I love this machine. It's so tough and durable. Right now I am just doing straight line quilting. I don't know if I will ever move on to free motion quilting or not. So for now, I am enjoying doing it this way. Here's what I'm working on.

I know.... I have much practicing to do. But I bet my neice will still love this quilt when it's done :)

I've also started my list of things to make for Christmas. I've found directions for fabric boxes and baskets, darling mug rugs and candle rugs, chocolate goodies and more. I love the Christmas season!

The skies have been beautiful lately. We've been having lots of clouds moving about, sometimes giving us some rain. Here is a sunset picture I took about a week ago.

I hope you'll come join the fun on the board.

Till next time!!

I'm trying to teach myself free motion quilting and it's not hard if I'm not too critical of myself. :) I've made a couple of mug rugs too and I love doing those! Beautiful picture. :) blessings, marlene
