Sun Is Still Shining...

It is still beautiful here in Michigan.  Although it is definitely on the cool side.  Terry and I went for a drive the other day to visit a campground I used to go to with my parents when I was a kid.  "Portage Lake".

This is the country road leading to the park. 

There are so many trees at the park now.  When I was a kid there weren't any.  But as my husband pointed out that was a good 40 years ago.

This is a camping cabin you can rent.  It was nestled off the main road near the lake.
It has the cutest deck and what a view.  I could move in.

Now for some Quilt Pictures.  I try and switch out my quilts on a monthly basis.  I took down the Halloween quilts and here is what I have put up for November.

Not exactly an Autumn quilt but the colors work.  This is a "Country Threads" pattern.

One of my favorite "Debbie Mumm" patterns.

And "Rusted Moons" by Whimsicals.  I really love this one.

I've finished a few projects that I had laying around. 

Years ago I was in a 9 patch swap on "Interquilt".  It was a monthly themed swap.  So what does one do with all those 9 patches?  Make a Quilt.  The 9 patches are 3" finished.  Believe it or not I had to make some additional 9 patches.  I really love the scrappy look.  Now I need to find the time to quilt it.

 I am so in love with Scrappy Quilts.  This one came about because I had soooooo many 5" charm squares.  I found a pattern where you put two charm squares face to face and make the cuts for the block (Background and Foreground) at the same time.  Goes really quickly.

I'm packing we're not moving.  Just going to the Upper Peninsula to visit my oldest son and his family.  Also to go watch my Granddaughter Ashley play hockey.  I promise I take pictures.  Until then.....

Wishing you a Quilty day filled with sunshine.

Hugs, Cathy

But there won't be room for all THREE of us to sew in that cabin, will there?
Love that 9-patch!
Wow, I wish I had enough quilts to change them out each month. I feel like I am quilting all the time, but somehow I never have any of the finished products!
