So long November

November 2012

Those are my November makes. I have to say I spent a lot of November making that weekender bag, if you missed it, the post about making it is here.

I am going to take that Weekender some places - this week I purchased airline tickets. Marianne from The Quilting Edge and I are going to Texas in February - we have tickets to Quiltcon. And I have a ticket to the Fat Quarterly Retreat in London in July too - it is time to make the travel arrangements. That Weekender Bag is going to see the world.

Ohio Stars

Since the November makes are looking a bit thin, I wanted to show off my two other big projects this month. The Oakshott Lipari table runner is coming along. Those 3" Ohio star blocks are not a quick make but worth the fuss. Maybe I can get this one done this weekend, or at least over the next week.

Mod Pop - so far

And here is my Mod Pop so far. I am going large - it will be queen size - so I have 6 more blocks to make this weekend and the edge bits. Cindy from Fluffy Sheep Quilting has sponsored a give away of a Mermaid Splash fat quarter bundle in the Mod Pop Quilt Along for finishing the Mod Pop tops by the end of Sunday. Since everyone is quilting along with me,  I have to keep the pace myself. And I cannot wait to quilt this one so I am backing it with a nice sheet so I can go from top to quilting without delay.
