Our friends at Yankee Quilter will be offering the kit for the project and Ackfeld Manufacturing took a small version of one of their quilt hangers and tweaked it for us! What a great collaboration!

On Saturday, my friends at the Southford Falls Quilt Guild had their first quilt show. What fun! They did a great job- there seemed to be lots of people there, there was a beautiful raffle quilt and lots of fun baskets to win. the only problem I can see is that I have yet to get a call about which basket I won! Oh well, I tried.
I also made a baby quilt. I cut it out on Sat morning and then made all the blocks on Saturday afternoon after the show. I used our pattern "Mosaic Medley". I love using that one for baby quilts. I don't make tiny baby quilts. And, it came out so cute! I can't stand it! I used some fabric from the "Safari so Good" fabric line by P&B Textiles- it has these really cute monkeys. It was so funny; a month or so ago I was in PA for work and I stopped to see my daughter. On the way to see her, I stopped at a really nice fabric shop called Piece by Piece Quit Shop in Ephrata, PA. And that's where I saw the monkey fabric. Now I am not a huge monkey fan, but these guys were cute and the dad of the baby -to -be loves monkeys!
Today I put the quilt together. Isn't it too darn cute! I guess it is a little hard to see the fabric...
I also made a bean bag chair for my daughter's dorm room at college. I'd take a picture, but until she fills it with beans, it looks like a lump of fabric!
I also worked on a quilt pattern we are designing for a shop hop in NY. We are going to call it "Pinpoint". I am trying out various colorways- my first one was in fall colors. Yesterday I was adding flower Yo-yo's made with the clover Yo-yo tool on the way to the guild show. What do you think? Aren't they cute?
I am also working on a more Christmas version of the runner. But I will save posting a picture of that one until it is quilted. I basted it today so it is ready for the next step. Off to take a break (and maybe sew a binding on a quilt while I veg in front of the "tube")!
Until another day...
