November has been beautiful here in Iowa, it is hard to believe I was outside today without a jacket!
A couple of weeks ago I mentioned that I was bidding on an old vintage truck that I wanted to put in my yard so I could use it as a prop for my quilts. Well, the bid went up to $1,300, way too much for a yard ornament. Would you like to see what it looked like?
Just imagine it with the hood on and the sides cut down to the originals sides. Right now we have too much going on with the move so it is probably a good thing I didn’t win the bid. Maybe next summer we will find one!
My Quilt Project
Well, since I didn’t get the truck I decided it would be fun to create a quilt project using a vintage truck! I’m working on an applique table runner that I’ll be sharing in my next post. I am doing a fast and easy way of appliqueing and I can’t wait to show it to you!
Quilt Projects Shared With Me
I always enjoy seeing what you have made with my tutorials and quilt patterns! Here are a couple that I think you will like.
Autumn Table Runner
Donna shared her beautiful table runner that she made using my Autumn table runner tutorial. Isn’t it neat!
Jeanette made this precious Midnight Glow quilt. She made it as a donation to the Project Linus group she belongs to. Some lucky child will love it!
Ohio Star Table Runner
Mary Sue used my Fiery Orange Ohio Star table runner tutorial to make not only a table runner but also placemats! What a great idea!
Modern 9 Patch
Joan had fun making the Modern 9 Patch table topper and instead of appliquing the maple leaves, she embroidered them!
Autumn Table Runner
Martha also made the Autumn table runner but in blues. This would go perfectly in our new kitchen as it has dark blue counters. I heard that blue is coming back in style! This would also be perfect for the 4th of July!
Coral Jewel table runner
Susana shared her embroidered Coral Jewel table runner that she will use at Christmas time.
Christmas Tree table runner
Sandy is working on my Christmas Tree table runner tutorial. She said she is a novice sewer and has really enjoyed how easy it was to follow my tutorial. Comments like that always make my day!
Linda is making beautiful placemats for her son using the QAYG placemats tutorial. Her son laid out the fabric design and she is making 6 of them. His plates are oversized so she is making the placemats 14½ x 1.8. Love the quilting!
Here is another beautiful quilt made by Susana! She used my River Scraps pattern, what a great job! She said she has become a master at “unpicking” and it may not be perfect but it is done! That is always my motto too!
Pumpkin Block Runner
Jan used my Pumpkin Block table runner tutorial to make this beautiful table runner. Look how she added a border of pumpkins that must be a fancy stitch on her sewing machine.
Mr. Mickey and I have been taking walks at least twice a day. They are short walks but boy does he enjoy them. I have also started taking him for a short drive in the car which ends at a park. I am hoping to get him over his anxiety of being in a car. Here he is on my Flying Nines baby quilt.
Sonja shared a couple photos of her dog Gilbert. This one is right after he was groomed. Isn’t he hansome! The live in Germany.
Bonnie shared a photo of her precious poodle Roxy. She lived to be 13, what a beauty!
Chari shared these cute photos of her dogs!
It isn’t just dogs that we love! When Anita is quilting, Molly is the supervisor. She looks pretty comfortable!
