The GoalMy goal for October's "A Lovely Year of Finishes" linky party is to finish my guild challenge. Quilted. Faced. Ready to hang!
There. I've said it. Now I HAVE to do it!
First, though, I'm working on this beautiful Buggy Barn quilt pieced by Margaret. It will be her (generous!) donation to the Festival of Trees, an annual fundraiser held by our local women's shelter. I'm happy to do my part by donating the quilting.
|Stitching in the Ditch around each block gave me time to think about my next step.|

Before loading the Buggy Barn I needed thinking time, so I whipped through a couple of customer quilts.

The Show!October will be a busy month, but there's always time to go to a quilt show - even one that's a two hour drive away!
The show offered a wonderful mix of styles and sizes. Something for everyone!
|"Shelter in the Storm", pieced by Sheila Elliot, and quilted by Roma Kosyk|
|"Hexagon Shuffle", made by Lee Johnson (a Moda Bake Shop pattern)|
|"Spooky Spiders", designed and constructed by Alice Lorenz|
|"September Song", made by Marg Johns (begun in a workshop with Liz Faminoff)|
|"Tangled Threads Exchange Quilt", constructed by Tanya Ironside, quilted by Posh Threads|
Haley will prepare the applique, and then I'll piece the quilt and finish things up. She loves doing artsy things, but doesn't quilt, so this seems like a logical arrangement. Especially since we will be working long distance.
