Off to the Quilter

Still not much sewing going on around here. Murphy requires constant supervision or he gets into something or goes somewhere he shouldn't. The sewing room is upstairs and we've never allowed any of our dogs to go upstairs, so it's hard to snatch a few minutes in the sewing room.

Progress is about to be made on this quilt, though. This top went to the long-armer this morning:

These were the alternate blocks from the 2014-15 Quilted Fox BOM series, Fox in the Forest. Dar of Dar's Patchwork Garden is quilting it for me using a Falling Leaves panto. This will become a Christmas gift and is the last of the gift quilts for this year.

Speaking of Dar, she's very active in QOV of Eastern Missouri and the QOV block drive is continuing, using my LCT block. Click on the LCT for QOV tab above for the tutorial. Easy, and fun; no one can make just one. Dar is collecting blocks through the end of the year.
Blocks can be sent to:
2627 Bates Rd.O'Fallon, MO 63368.
Log Cabin Triangle blocks for QOV

Linking up with Patchwork Times and Em's Scrapbag


  1. Your Fall quilt top has such beautiful fabric in it and hope that the Falling Leaves will add the the feeling of Autumn even more. Also, Thanks for the reminding everyone about the QOV of Eastern MO Block Drive. I'm accepting blocks through the end of the year.

  2. A falling leaves pattern sounds perfect for this quilt top. Thank goodness puppies and kittens are so cute; it balances out how much attention and interaction they need. I can understand having "off limits" spaces for pets and occasionally with there were a door on my sewing room to keep my cat out.

  3. Congrats on getting that last quilt to be gifted off to be quilted. That's no small feet. Looking forward to seeing it all finished.
