Revolutionary Flags Quilt Month 2

Last month we had 4 blocks we were doing for our Revolutionary Flags quilt. If you didn't get all them completed, that's okay. We want to see the ones you have done. Then keep plugging forward!
Block 2 Appeal to Heaven and Block 3, Bunker Hill
Block 4, The Pine Tree Flag and Block 8, Pine Tree
Janet Y's blocks. Love the stripe!

If you do not have a blog send me photos of what you have completed. If you have a blog, please link up the post you have shown this month's blocks.

Ready for your October blocks? It is going to sound like a lot, but some of it is easy piecing and no applique! We will be working on the stripes blocks. 
  •  Block 5,  Guilford Courthouse. (I've looked for buttons but will resort to making 8 pointed stars from wool and appliqueing them) 
  • Block 6
  • Block 9 (the most applique this month) 
  • Block 11 (I am going to look for white stars to add to the blue field) 
  • Block 13 (again, will use white star buttons)
Have a fantastic Wednesday!

Revolution Flag Quilt


I've only had two people email me their photos of this months sections. Let's all post tomorrow and show off what we made this month. If you didn't get all 4 blocks complete please show what you have.

Send me your photos if you do not have a blog to share on.

Antique Bed Turning

I made a quick trip to Seattle but decided to leave a little early and stop by the NW Quilt Expo in Portland. One of the highlights was the antique quilt bed turning by Latimer Quilt & Textile Center in Tillamook, Oregon.










These great quilts need very few words. I hope you enjoyed them!

More Autumn Decor

I put this lovely quilt on my bed this week. The blocks were made by all of you and I assembled it similar to the Farmer's Wife quilt. My friend Randy organized it as a secret for my 50th birthday. It is a treasure!


Under the Big Top

A round robin quilt. Hand quilted by me.

A string quilt I started in a class with Gwen Marston.. I love the border which you can barely see- gold and green- perfect fall colors.


Happy weekend my dear friends!

Two Book Winners

If you like to read easy, clean books I can heartily recommend the Quilts of Love series. Thank you to all who commented. I like hearing about when/where you read. Before bed seems to be a popular time. 
Without further ado I am drawing two names for both of these books. I just finished A Sky Without Stars. It was interesting as I live very near a Native American Reservation.

I just heard of this series and I am reading Hidden in The Stars right now

And A Grand Design

I usually read while I'm eating, as I live alone, but I also read after I eat to let things get settled before I rush off to something else.

MaryAnn and Jean please send me your mailing address to loridweightwatchers@gmail.com and I'll get the books in the mail.

Wish I could say I've been sewing this week, but I've been working! Looks for more autumn decor on Friday.
Happy Fall and Happy Wednesday!

Autumn Has Arrived at My House

The weather was Hot! Hot! Hot! this weekend  but after camping I decided it was time to change the decor. The trees are changing color  in the mountains and the evenings are cooling off.
 "The Old City" made to commemorate my trip to Denmark.

 My fall/winter snuggle quilt.
 Harmony is one of my favorite quilt-a-longs. (I found our next one! I hope you all are not tired of them))
 This is what greets those who enter my house by the front door.

This is one of my top most favorite autumn quilts.

I have more to show but that will need to wait for another day. If you want to see some of my camping trip click HERE.

First Friday at Quiltworks

 I wasn't able to make it to Quiltworks for First Friday earlier in the month and I know September will be gone before I know it. I had to make a quick jaunt to Bend for business so dropped by quickly to enjoy the exhibit upstairs.
Tammy MacArthur was the featured quilter. It was obvious to me she loved applique, challenges and machine quilting. She is very talented and I enjoyed seeing her diverse collection of quilts.






(I do believe this one was hand quilted!)

The group featured was the Central Oregon Modern Quilt Guild. The quilts displayed were the result of a star challenge. 








I liked the group quilts a lot! Have a lovely weekend!
