This and That

So much for will power!
Looks like those WIPs will go back in the infamous closet for awhile.
I have been busy with new projects, which will come to no surprise to those who know how easily I am tempted...the samples for the
Petite Patchwork Club at TOWQS.
Here is the October mini:
And here is the November mini:

Both quilts are from the patterns, QUILT SQUARES, by Lori Smith.
If you want info on the club,
go  to www.theoldeworldquiltshoppe.com.
It was so fun to do some small scale piecing again! 

With a little bit of help for a wonderful stitcher,
the November banner for the Basin Banners Thru the Year Club is also done and hanging in the shoppe.

Next up are the new BOM programs we have planned.  I'll be back with them as I make progress. I am especially excited about the Farm Girl Finery quilt, designed by Kim Diehl and appearing in her new book, Simple Appeal.

I am keeping up with my little letters though!
I have motivation. I need a baby quilt.
My grandson was born the day after my birthday.

What a wonderful present!
