Design Wall Monday

What a fun, full week I've had! 
My plan was to quilt and quilt I did.

Tuesday was a good day to channel my friend Julie and get some basting done.
I set up my basting tables and basted 4 quilts,
2 baby quilts, 1 twin and 1 queen.
I had one already basted and on the machine with the quilting started.
When Ernie is away hunting for the day,
I take advantage of no interruptions.

This is the Calendar Wall Hanging that was 1st up.
I can't show it to you until I share it with the gals at Christmas Club.
I'm so happy to have it finished finally and can't wait to hang it.

Next up is baby quilt 1.
I don't know who designed this block. 
I've searched and searched but have no idea.
It was fun to sit down at EQ7 and figure it out.

Baby quilt #2
These will both go to a local charity.
I loved digging in my strip bins and using up strips from our swaps.
It was also fun deciding on backs for these.
I wanted fun and bright (and fabric out of my stash!).

My next retreat is next weekend.
I had already planned to work on Virginia Bound from
Bonnie Hunter's book Scraps & Shirttales.
My string bins are overflowing and I've wanted to make this one for a very long time.

Friday I decided to cook up my last Blue Moon pumpkin
and get the puree in the freezer.
My friend Pam gave me 3 of these,
I gave 1 to Crystal.
I saved the seeds from my 2 to share.
She saved her seeds too.
We are going to have plenty of pumpkins next year.

Isn't it pretty.
I don't think mine is going to last very long.
Hubs has decided he really really likes pumpkin bars.

We celebrated this weekend with Leland.
He's in the blonde in the middle.
Happy 9th birthday Big Guy! ๐Ÿ’—

My plan for this week is to take a short break from quilting.
I'm going to make some doll clothes for some special girls
 and a couple sweaters for myself.
Then it's back to quilting.

This is the next quilt to be quilted.
Have you watched Angela Walters' on You Tube?
She has a series on Dot To Dot quilting.
That's what I'm going to do on this one. 
Or we can say that's my plan. ๐Ÿ˜‰

Fun at your house! Happy Birthday times for our Grandsons this week. I like Pumpkin pie and custard, no crust to make. Didn't know they were called Blue moon squash. I learned something new this morning. Yes, I watch Angela. Have fun doing the Dot to Dot quilting.

You are on a quilting roll! I need to follow suit. Your pumpkin does look wonderful. My favorite dessert is pumpkin pie!

What fun and I am so glad we can be basting and quilting together! Your projects are great.

What a fun week you’ve had! I love all those peeks at quilts you worked on. Yum, I’ll have a pumpkin bar...don’t mind if I do. Scraps and Shirtails looks VERY interesting. And your next quilt up for being quilted is SO pretty!

You have bee very busy! I shall have to look up a recipe for pumpkin squares. I do like pumpkin pie, so they sound good. The quilt from Scraps and Shirttails, Virginia Bound, is a great quilt to use up your scraps on.
Thanks for linking with Design Wall Mondays, I like to see what you have been doing.
