October Finishes!

Winding down another month and I have two more quilts completed.  I can't believe that in just 2 short months we'll be saying goodbye to 2014!

"Happily Ever After" began the month as a set of jewel blocks.  I set them together, floated with a white border and then a multicolored outer border.  I think it came out really cute, perfect for a couch cuddle quilt, so I gifted it to a friend's daughter on her wedding day!

Charming Stars has been my leader & ender project for the last couple of months while joining in with Terri's Treasures sew along.  I began with Moda's Odds & Ends charm pack and the brown tone on tone for the stars really brought everything together!

Thank you for stopping by!

I love that star quilt - the fabrics you have chosen for the quilt are just perfect!!!!

p.s. Don't give up on your youngest -- I had never touched a sewing machine in my entire life until I was around 31.

Okay this is a little wierd - in a good way. Followed your link from MSQC forum and you and I not only have the same first name, but the same taste in fabric. I have a basic patchwork Odds N Ends waiting to be basted and I also have that paisley fabric in your happily ever after boarder. We have excellent taste, I must say. Lovely work!
