Chilly nights and Counting down

Here's my fall quilt that is now on our bed. FINALLY the weather
is more like fall here in Bowie, MD. This quilt has heavy batting
so it weighs a ton! It won first place in the large pieced category
at our quilt show in March 2006. You can just ignore the woman
holding the ribbon! I think it won because the men who came
to the show liked it and voted for it. I can't remember if the
pattern is called Cabin Full of Geese or Geese in the Cabin.

THREE MORE DAYS until I get to look at this view while I
am sewing away all day--for four whole days!!! My bee will
be on retreat starting Friday here at West River, just south
of Annapolis. My dining room table is being piled high
with fabric and gadgets. I take my own sewing chair and
my little plastic three drawer storage. I keep changing my
mind as to the projects I want to work on. (I have so many
to choose from, dontcha know!?) I know I will be working
on a Christmas lap quilt and table runner for my daughter
and my son's wonderful girlfriend's graduation quilt. I also
have two patterns for boxes that you cover with fabric for
the both boy's girlfriends. Plus many many many more.
Gosh I would have to stay at least a month to get it all done.

I'll have lots of fun pics...
Until next time...

Great quilt. I can see why this would appeal to men (in particular) as the limited colour palette makes it very graphic :)

Great quilt! A friend of mine in Boonsboro, MD, said it's cooled down a bit now--hope you start to actually need that quilt soon!
