I'm making progress on all fronts. Autumn's Bounty (aka Autumn Harvest) has one corner designed and just about stitched down. I am using a primitive whipstitch per Renee Plains suggestion (from her book, not from her personally.) I am waiting for some wool thread in the mail to give it a try. Next step is to repeat the design in the upper right corner and then decide if it needs anything else. And...I am contemplating a final pieced border. Am I nuts?!

My romantic stars challenge quilt is pieced and quilted. Just the single fold binding left. My machine quilting teacher, Carol, will be proud of those 'fat and happy' feathers.

And I have selected the fabrics for my notebook cover. Don't you love those homespuns by Diamond Textiles. It magically appeared at the shoppe this summer while I was away.

I'm a procrastinator, so this will probably get made the week before I teach my color mastery seminar. I have at least a month.
And I know this will come as no surprise to those who know me and those who are getting to know me, but I have started on 'The Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt.' So much for staying focused and completing UFO's.


  1. Your Autumn's Bounty looks coming alog very well and look at your machine quilted feather!! Very beautiful!! And the fabrics for your notebook cover look yummy :) I'll start The Farmer's Wife Sampler Quilt when the Shoppe starts a club in this fall... Can't wait to see yours! Too much fun here!

  2. Hi Cheryl,
    You are so good about staying on track with your projects. I could take a lesson from you! I love the collage of natural abundance in the corner of your Autumn's Bounty quilt. And the purple hue in your challenge quilt is really eye-catching. I'd like to make more purple quilts myself. And I'm delighted to see the beginnings of your Out on a Limb notebook cover!
