I think I scared a bunch of commenters off with my PIF. Don't worry, I've got my three takers and I'm so pleased. Thank you Kristin at Quiltilicious, Yvonne at Quilting Down the Stairs and Darlene at Quilting Daze. I've got everything planned (you know I love to plan) and will be starting soon. This is gonna be fun!
This week I've been busy trying to get the 20 large socks done for my Lost Sock Swap. I only need two more. Then I can start on the 40 small socks. This is a good project for after work while I watch American Idol and Dancing with the Stars. Hope something else good comes up, these shows are almost over and I've got a lot of socks to do!
I did manage to complete something this weekend, remember the pumpkin swap? I've got them together and put on the outside borders this afternoon. I love it!
Are you ready for a pumpkin parade? This pattern is called "Frost On the Pumpkin" by Anne Sutton of Bunny Hill Designs. I have couple of pictures of the same quilt for you. The first one is from last year at Quilting in the Garden. The second one is my friend Holly's who was in the swap with me and the third one is mine. I decided not to use a few of the pumpkins from the swap and made a few of my own. Also Holly had the great idea to tea dye the blocks that were too light. I'm really happy with it and I hope I can get Holly to quilt it for me.

Hope you all had a lovely weekend! xoxomar

Hi Mar!
Hi Mar-

I actually had a chance to read some of your older posts and I discovered that we are doing some of the same projects. Well, you are actually doing them and I have been planning to do them! I am also planning to do the Lost Sock quilt. I saw it hanging up at a quilt store at Christmas time and I fell in love with it.

Hope you had a good weekend!
Happy Quilting!

Oh Mar, I'm so happy to see my pumpkin made the final cut; those leaves were the death of me!
I just LOVE that border. Wish I could "open" the picture to see it up close. It looks gorgeous! Hope you enjoy it for many years to come.
