A couple of weekends ago we went to visit our daughter and family. Of course, we had to go feed the ducks since this is one of Ellie's favorite things. Although she did eat a few pieces of the stale bread herself between throwing chunks to the ducks.

We started working on a Quiet Book for Church for Ellie.

2 of my friends, Janine and Connie, and I made Halloween quilts. We shared fabrics so we would get lots of fun blocks. This one is mine. I use flannel on the back.

Linda, the quilter at Just Sew in Highland, did a fantastic job quilting spider webs.

This one is Janine's quilt. She uses Minke on the back. It really shows off the quilting and is so bright.

Once again, I've been cleaning out my sewing room. I wonder who (or what) comes in and messes it up all the time? Of course, as I'm cleaning I find projects that need to be completed or new projects to start or I just sit and reread quilt wonder I never finish the clean up job!

Happy Quilting! Lynda

How Ellie has grown; she is adorable!
I'm looking forward to see the finished quiet book, I think it's a great idea.
Your Halloween quilt is wonderful - and it would suit my couch any time of the year, purple and orange being my favourite colours.
Have fun discovering old treasures in your sewing room; I love when that happens.-)

Ellie is adorable, Gramma! Glad you were able to spend some time with her...they grow so fast, these little ones.
That's a pretty neat Halloween quilt. Good idea on swapping fabrics, and the web quilting is perfect for the theme ~

What a cutie little Ellie is! She's a lucky girl to get such a lovely "church book"!
You really love Halloween, don't you? It seems to me that in every other post there's something about Halloween. Not too long now ;).
