CCC #25 Begins! & Another peek at SSQG show

Chester County Criswell Block #25

 This was one of my favorite quilts at the Spinning Spools Quilt Guild in September made by my friend, the very talented and award winning quilter Debbie Jeffers! See detail below. I do not recall the pattern name (it is not an original design) but it was new to me and so pretty!

I'm busy traveling and working - not much time to blog or quilt but life is good!

Happy Qulting to All!

Fall flowers & treasure find!

Here are a few pictures of current yard. My favorite colored bougainvillea and a purple on continue to bloom! The magnolia tree is sporting some interesting seeds.

Window flower boxes are about spent. I have the after (now) and before photos below. The close up of the tiny purple flowers are in my window box. I added them to the mix new this year and they have done very well in the boxes. I need to figure out what they are and get again next year.

My little rescue Christmas cactus in quilting studio window is thriving and has quadrupled in size.

And, look at this treasure find! I have liked Harriet Powers and similar quilts for a long time and ran across the entire pattern set from Jan Pantek's as a cast- off in a bin at garage sale. Exciting!

Next I must find fabric for it. There are some scraps here, but I will need background and other scraps to go with the primitive look. I have dug through my stash resources and this is not the type of fabric I have - so I will be on the look out for primitive type fabric now.
