November Parade

Well we had two faithful participants!  And it's probably my fault because we took a break and moving was so incredibly hard on me, plus during all of that our daughter started having was just an awful time for our family.  So everything took a back seat especially this quiltalong and especially this blog......and I apologize.

UPDATE:  Okay had a couple of request so I thought I would follow through.  Sooooooo the next challenge can be one of  FOUR quilts!!!  You can either do

I choose quilts that varies from your busyness level....hope this helps and can't wait for the December 1st Parade!!!!  Be sure to email your photo's to Tildagirl @ msn dot com
Remember we are working out of the book
101 Fabulous Small quilts by That Patchwork Place!

I am really hoping with the new year we can begin again and really get some quilting done!  But I don't want to short change Laurie who worked diligently on hers and had pictures sent to me on time!  So with no further adu....presenting Lauries Turkey Tracks.

Laurie I appreciate you sticking with me and enjoying your lovely loving the red and white and the swirly quilting!  
Kay did hers using green accent, just in time for the holidays, and its hand quilted!  Beautiful!!!!

For those of you reading please come back...don't be a stranger.  I am going to leave you with some fall pictures of our porch and new front door....trim is being put on tomorrow...can't wait!  In the next few weeks we will be decorating for Christmas !  Can't wait!  


  1. Bless your heart! Your home looks wonderful. I'm so sorry that you have had such a horrible time with moving and your daughter. I hope you can get back to your's good therapy. Hugs, linda

    1. Thanks so much Linda.....I will definitely be getting back to quilting....It is my serenity! Thanks for stopping by!

  2. So sorry for all that you and your family have been going through. I agree with Lady Linda that quilting is good therapy. Love your front porch!
    I did finish a Turkey Tracks quilt but don't have your email to send you the picture.

    1. Thank you so much Kay, I trust The Lord has us in His Hand and is keeping us close......just sent you an email with my email addy....please send me a photo, I will add it to the parade!

  3. So sorry for your troubles. I guess I missed the post about the quilt for the month. I did 2 mini quilts for a class on minis at our local quilt shop. They are all Jaybird patterns done with mini hex and more. They are CHALLENGING! I am actually even quilting and binding them. I would love to start monthly quilts again- so many we have not done int the 101 Small Quilts book. Really want to make the one with fall leaves. I even bought wool for the appliqué last April. I guess it's just aging in my stash. Best wishes for better things in your life.

    1. No Need to add it to your stash, I think I will be adding a challenge!!! So break it out!! Will post it today.....hang in!

  4. Hello from a new reader. Enjoyed the post and the photos too.

  5. I need a new front door so I truly appreciate your handsome door!
