September Quilts

Sitting here with a nice fire in the fireplace and it's freezing cold out.  Looking at these photos below and remembering the warm days of September.  That was a while ago!!  On with the show...

Polly got quite a few comments and a lot of attention with this scrappy quilt!  Simple but the use of color pulls this quilt together wonderfully!  Of course I'm loving the blues!

Elizabeth usually brings me quilts college bound.  This time it was a cute baby quilt for a new member of the family.  Finished it off with hearts for the machine quilting.  Minky backing makes this a super cuddly quilt.

Ruth finished this fabulous blue quilt for the Dartmouth Cancer Center.  What a wonderful contribution to the center this quilt is going to be.  Quilters in our area are making and donating quilts to the The Jack Byrne Center.  The center is amazing and I am so proud to be just a very small part of it.

This soft quilt from Bonnie is another that will be donated to the Jack Byrne Center.  The quilts hopefully make the rooms feel more like home and less hospital like.  Again, the facility is amazing!!

  Ketta is sporting some wild colors with this one.  A simple
 design with the Kaffe Fassett fabrics is always a winner!
Ketta is sold on using the new Warm Company batting.
She's loving it!

Here's another marvelous quilt from Rita!!  This is her second quilt like this, the first she used bright fabrics.  You can see it here.  I'm usually all about the blues, but I think the first one is my favorite, but I'd take this one in a New York minute!!  Great job, Rita!!

What a fun quilt block this one is!!  Linda, who works with the bold and brights, did a great job on this split 4 patch quilt.  I love the way she match the fabrics to offset the darks and the lights.  

Working with Anne here in New Hampshire to finish off this great black and red quilt, it just might be off to college with her daughter.  Anne's daughter has a huge love for music so we opted for a music themed quilting design.  Love it!!

What a monster quilt this one was!!  Oh my gosh!!  Maria made this very cool quilt for her son.  I am POSITIVE that he is loving it, Maria is just happy to have it finished and saying she'll never do that size again!  But seriously, it is a very cool quilt for a guy!

MINE!!!  Wanted to finish off a quick quilt with a Minky backing and using a new batting from the Warm Company.  It's called Warm & Plush.  It's a bit heavier than the Warm & Natural and still all cotton.  I'm liking it, only is available in 90" wide, I think that's a check in the minus column.

I WANT ONE!!! The photos do not do this quilt justice!!  Not only is it a gorgeous quilt but it has two layers of batting!  I've done a few quilts with the two layers of batting and they are so thick, I WANT ONE!!  Would be perfect tonight with the temps in the single digits and the snow!  OH!!  Sue here in NH, made this great quilt for a friend, Sue is a good friend!

Patty here in NH did a great job on this quilt. I believe it was a Christmas gift for one of her sons.  Patty was way ahead of the game on getting her Christmas quilts done!  Both quilt were fabulous guy quilts!

Yep, another one I didn't want to send home!  Suzi made this great, and I mean GREAT quilt for her son!  We selected a modern, swirly, edgy quilting design that finished it off perfectly!!  Suzi, splendid job on the guy quilt, I am positive that he loved it!

Worked on Nicole's quilts for a day or two.  LOVE, LOVE, LOVE the first one!!  It's the quilting friends and these gals are fun, funky and fabulous!  Nicole's second quilt, another - I WANT ONE!!  We used two layers of batting on this one too and what a fat, fluffy quilt it is!  Never mind the amazing job she did on the piecing and the color combo is great, resulting in a incredible quilt.

Another WOW!!!!  Cathie quilt...WOW!!
Really?  What can I say?  
Isn't it amazing how three colors can make such a great quilt?

That's it for the month of September!  I hope to be back very, very soon with the October and November quilts!!  Don't like being this far behind, so I'm working hard to get caught up again.

As usual more photos of these quilts can be seen at the other blog, here's the link and don't forget to click on the photo for a closer look!!

Take care,
