Today we are looking at a new challenge. This one for November, but being Halloween I thought we should include something Halloweenish in today's rules, just for fun.

Day 44 in quilting... I'm sure if you know anything at all about quilting then you have heard of feather quilting. Today I have a photo of a feather. Of course it doesn't look anything like the feather quilting design.

Santa Sack for Thomas

Posted by Ruth on 29 October 2013 | 0 Comments

For some time now my daughter has been asking me if I was going to make Thomas, my grandson a Christmas sack. Even though this Christmas is his second, we were all surprised when he arrived last Christmas eve. Of course, no time to make a Christmas sack! So this year I made him a special sack.

This is the last Sunday in October. I'm not sure where the time has gone, but it has. I'm not even sure where the hours in the day go, but they go. Luckily I did find time to almost complete my challenge.

Seeing as my class for Bargello Swirl is starting soon, I thought it would be fun to create a jigsaw puzzle of it. I used the swirl design. How difficult will you find this one?

Agapanthus is a flower you see around in a lot of places. They are also know as African lilies and Liles of the Nile. I see them a lot in New Zealand, yet these photos were taken while visiting Temecula in Southern California.

Machine Quilting 43

While out walking I found this beautiful leaf just waiting for me to make a quilting design from <grin> I had to pick it up and carefully carry it home, being an autumn leaf it was rather delicate. I love the colors in it, but more importantly, it was the ideal design that I was looking for to quilt on the quilt I'm currently working on.

Knot of Squares or Trinity Celtic Knot

One of the beauties of online classes is that you can work at your own pace just as Connie is doing with her quilt. She made her Trinity Celtic Knot quilt in dark fabrics and has extended the quilt to include extra patches. Connie doesn't always have time to work on her quilt so is happy to come back each class session with updates and questions when needed. It's fantastic watching her quilt grow.
