Marcel's Dinosaur Quilt

Here is a picture of Marcel's Dinosaur Quilt, for preschool! I am very proud of myself, this was a kit i bought in the summer from Fat Quarter Queen, i started it in September for his birthday and i finished it today! (I have been trying to buy fabric and actually make it) Still to put the label on his Dino quilt, don't know if it's going to make it on there :) I have put it on his bed, Kristina will have to wash it. I might just add year on it at another date and time. Next are my snowmen, i have about 1/2 way completed on all 16! I think i might be working on them next weekend, i would love to be done with those! Currently working on quilting the pumpkin rummer top i showed you a week ago! It's about 1/2 done! On my list are 4 Christmas stockings, must be done by the end of November. i can do it!! Post people post!

Mary Engelbreit Apron

Check out my apron! It was so much fun, again using what i have in my stash and scraps. This one is for Milly, I'm sending it to her with a couple cook books from a high school fund raiser that i bought. She's the cook in the family... Still working on the pumpkin table runner i am making for her. Pinning on Monday night in class and working on it during the week. Good thing about Fall fabric, colors, & theme it can be displayed Sept-Nov.

Attic Window Block - the secret !!!

Here is a view of the back which shows the 1-seam secret!!! You sew the 2 triangles together that become the side and bottom window sill with the "window" triangle folded and sandwiched between ... hope this makes sense ?!?! Then the front where the "window" is folded.

Attic Window Block
