This is our guild's next Christmas Craft Sale raffle quilt and the pattern is called Cobblestone Road by Cozy Quilt Designs. If you want to read about a fantastic way to raise money for your guild you can check out my post here where I share the secrets to our guilds best fundraiser.
I can't remember the name of the fabric collection used in this quilt but it has a retro Christmas feel to it.
I used Starlight for the panto, Quilter's Dream Poly Black batting and So Fine black thread.
As I was taking these pictures this morning I could hear a familiar Fall sound over head...look who's heading south already!
Another sign that summer is almost over is my fruit trees are almost ready for picking. Three years ago after my dad passed away my quilting friends took up a collection and told me to buy something for my yard to remember my dad. Well I knew right away what I would buy....an apple and a plum tree as that is what my dad loved in his yard. Since we have very short summers I was not expecting to get any fruit but just enjoyed seeing these trees bloom in the spring with hopes that one day I might get some fruit. Well this year is the first year they have produced and I have 6 apples and about 30 plums :)
They are not quite ready to pick but I might take a few off just in case a bear wanders by and decides he wants to eat them first!
Thank you to my quilting friends for this wonderful gift!
