Just finished Jess' "Past Tense".    Thought you might like a peak.

Sandy, it's wonderful! I love the deep saturated colors! Who's the lucky recipient?

Thanks gals.  Jess will have it for a sample for a bit, then she said it'd come back to me.  Not sure who will get it after that...still have 9 (out of 34) great nieces and nephews who still need a special "quilt hug" from me.

Here are my finishes for October:

My first Kumihimo (Japanese braiding) project. It's made of embroidery floss. It came out really long, but I wanted to use up all the floss to see how far it would go.

Here's a closeup showing the colors:

This is a kit I got at a quilt show a couple of years ago. I may send it to CA or SC to go to a family affected by the fires/floods. It's just squares and four patches; very fast to piece!

This is another kit I got at a quilt show (I think the same one the pansies came from LOL). I really like it so may keep it for myself.

Here's the backing. The pattern called for an extra row, but that would have made it out of proportion, IMHO So, the extra row became part of the back.

And this is the Hunter's Star I've been whining about for so long! It's for our godson's HS graduation next summer. I had lots of challenges with the bias edges (even with starch). I used Bonnie Hunter's bonus triangle system to make the HSTs for the border. They are 3/4"! And of course I sewed a long and a short border so they slanted the wrong way so had to unstitch them and do them over. I was afraid it would be a bear to quilt since it didn't seem very flat, but quilting was actually very easy! I briefly considered attempting to do the opposite colors on the binding, but decided to bind it with the same fabric as the backing.

Here's a closeup of one of the corners:

Off to some new projects now!

That is lovely Sandy!! So bright and pretty. I really want to get my quilted up, one of these days (it's almost the only quilt I have that isn't overly feminine. LOL)

Oh very nice Donna!! Those braids are neat, I'm going to look up some kits for R, I think she'll enjoy that. Love your Hunters Star!! You did an awesome job.

Donna, you really went to town in Oct!  Very nice.  Love your braid.  How long did that take?  Your kits are lovely, but your Hunter's Star is amazing!  Way to go gal!

Thanks, ladies!

Sandy, the braid goes pretty fast. I think it took maybe 4-6 hours total, and it's like 40" long or something. I'm working on one with beads now and it's taking much longer, but I think it's b/c the chenille cord is thick and the beads are small.

I didn't make all three quilts from start to finish in Oct. The two floral ones I pieced a few months ago, and the Hunter's Star was started about a year ago, and got put on time-out a couple of times. :)
