Well, it has been a while since reporting and the fabric usage has moved in the right direction. This summer and early autumn have flown by and I am still trying to figure out where it all went.

We had our St. Cloud Heritage Quilter's show on October 10th and 11th. Have to admit, I am so glad it is over. We made a lot of miles taking the raffle quilt around for showings and selling tickets. 

I entered two quilts in the show: Dotty Dresden and Hopscotch Butterscotch. The Dotty Dresden quilt took me quite a lot of time to quilt, since I am not very proficient at custom quilting.

Finally had time to do some regular sewing. October 21st was Brenda's birthday (youngest daughter), so I made her a sewing machine apron and a cover for her sewing machine. She is setting up her sewing area and hoping to have time for sewing this winter. I even used a bunch of my Tula Pink fabrics which impressed her!! LOL

We went to St Paul today and had dinner with our daughter and her boyfriend, Scott. It was an opportunity to meet Scott's parents as well. Maybe there will be an announcement coming soon! (Very Big Grin) What can I say ----? 

Hoping to catch up with what everyone has been doing. Make sure to hop over to Patchwork Times to see what others are doing.

Hugs, Beth


  1. Oh, I love your quilts! just all the colors in the Hopscotch quilt...and Gee, you got a lot done!!

    1. Thank you for stopping by. The Hopscotch quilt was such a lot of fun. It is a leader/ender quilt by Bonnie Hunter. Almost sewed itself.

  2. Oh gosh, Beth -- your Dotty Dresden is superb!! Did you win a ribbon?? You should have!! Our local show was that same weekend. I didn't work it, enter a quilt or even go. What's wrong with me?! LOL! :)

    1. Denise, I don't always enter something in the quilt show but I was on the committee this time, so --- . LOL Thank you for the kuddos. The Dotty Dresden is my favorite quilt and I am not giving it away. It is such a happy quilt but sadly it has received no ribbon. We only have Viewers Choice and there were a lot of really nice quilts done by our guild.
