Lots of quilting this weekend. I finished the Warrior Pride in time for the Homecoming game. I actually had 2 hours to spare :) I don't quilt well under pressure, just not enough time to get creative and then change my mind. I think it was the changing my mind that I really missed on this one. But the football mom loved it and that's what really matters. I did break out the embroidery machine for the letters, had to dust it off as it's been a long while since I've used it. And look at the back, I LOVE the football fleece we found for the back. Batting is Hobbs 80/20 and bottom line both top and bobbin.

2 QOV quilts completed this weekend as well. These 2 came from Kathy in Columbus IN. The construction equipment kinda threw me. I just outlined as if it were applique. I used Fanfare by Patricia E. Ritter, I love that panto for the Farm Stand quilt. . Batting hobbs 80/20, bottom line bottom of both. Construction quilt has invisible thread for the outlines, and bottom line for the background quilting. The Farm Stand quilt has so fine on top. I've been using quilters dream 70/30 for the past few months and honestly I like that so much better than the hobbs. I think once I finish the roll of Hobbs, I'm switching completely to quilters dream batting.
Not quite done with Orange Crush but hoping to get that completed this week for quilting next weekend. Can you believe how completely different that is from Warrior Pride? Orange Crush is true to the pattern so far where Warrior Pride deviated just a bit.

And one last picture or two, we're having such wonderful colors this year. Last week all the Hickory trees were a wonderful golden yellow, this week the oaks are showing off their brilliant reds and burgundy. This one in the front yard was just so pretty. In the second one you can see the swing where I take the pictures of the quilts outside. Too wet this weekend for outside pictures, would have been a nice picture of Warrior Pride in that spot.
