October Parade....Bear's Paw a Quilt

Well aren't I the bad blogger!  Well actually been sick this month with whatever this virus thing is that is going around but I think I am finally getting back to normal.  We have had such beautiful entries this month I must say I couldn't pick even one as a favorite!  They are ALL my favorite!  Kudos to everyone for sending photos of such pretty Bear paws!

So for next month I have chosen the next project from Kathleen Tracy's book Prairie Children and their Quilts.  You can find it on page 55, Prairie Baskets Quilt!  I chose this because around this time of year I think of baskets of Harvest....and I feel so blessed to live in a nation where we can celebrate the bounty of plentiful food.  We truly are blessed!  Here is a photo of the quilt.


And now for the Parade!  This is my flimsy but working on getting it quilted. I find with small projects I want to hand quilt it....we'll see, but I just couldn't resist using these fun Halloween prints! 



First up we have a lovely display and beautifully done earth tones by Denise! Great quilting too!



Laurie used warm Browns , so soothing and I like that she did each block in one color.  Well done! Another example of excellent quilting.



Mindy in the UK used such pretty country colors, and that display is awesome! I like the big boarder being eliminated...nice take.



Mickey's little quilt is so stunning using that cheddar boarder!  Tha black really makes it pop.


Robin set the tones with a scrappy look of country colors....nice take with the blue frame!



Sandy out did herself with this beautiful version, I am really digging the brown boarders!  




Sue did a great job with her scrappy look!  Love the brown border, and that scenery is gorgeous too!

And last but not least is Terri's, I like it on the chair!  Great idea and wonderful colors!




So now you can see what I mean that they all turned out so lovely!  Great job ladies!  Can't wait to see what you come up with next month!  
I just wanted to give you a heads up......we have about 2 more small quilts we will be doing out of this book for October and November.....we will Take December off and resume in January using
