Now that I'm back from my CA vacation, it feels like fall is creeping right up! We've had lots of summer birthday parties, kids in the pool, sleepovers, and two vacations so I think I'm ready for fall to start! I don't look forward to long nights of homework in the house but I am looking forward to cooler air and beautiful foliage...and of course that makes me want to quilt!
I will be publishing a new podcast soon. Stay tuned for that in the coming month.
I also have several fall and winter patterns out there too.
If you are following my blog or podcast, please leave a comment so I can get to know you and where you are from. You can comment here or over on the Big Tent if that is where you like to comment. I do have a subgroup under the Quiltcast Supergroup.
This quilt is of my daughter in the pumpkin patch in 2006. In my last podcast I mentioned the photo quilt book and supplies that were used in this quilt. I basically printed the photo poster size and seamed them together. Once that was done, I used thread to "color" the picture. I detailed every part of the photo including shirt, sneaker, hair, skin, pumpkins, etc. I finished this morning and hung it in the dining room!

In 2006 my Brownie troop made several baby quilts for the Wrap Them In Love organization. This charity collects and distributes quilts of all sizes worldwide to wonderful kids who also come in all sizes! Click on the link to find out more about the quilt requirements (it seems anything goes), make up a quilt, and send it to me or the organization. Check out the quilts the Brownies made in the 2006 Gallery while you're there (page 26, 3rd row down, 2nd photo in from the left). They also accept monetary contributions. So pick a pattern, collect some fabric, and get quilting!! http://www.wraptheminlove.org
