The machines slowed down a bit in September.  A couple of special projects that I needed to work on kept me busy for the month.  The first quilt was one of those projects. I had the opportunity to work with an extra special young gal on this wonderful quilt. The quilt is constructed mainly using Crystal's granddad's golf shirts.  Crystal had a large selection of shirts making coordinating the color combo work extremely well.  She knew exactly the quilt she wanted made making my job a bit easier.   Since granddad was an avid golfer the final touch was of course a golfing quilting design.  The quilt finished off beautifully giving Crystal a fabulous memento of her granddad.   

Here's a great quilt from Brandie in NH.  It's a spin on the 1600 done in beautiful 30's prints.  We went with a simple quilting design that finished off the quilt wonderfully.  Adding a super soft minky backing takes this one over the top!

Here's a couple of quilts from Cathie in CT.  The first quilt was a special project for her. The blocks were UFO's from her Mom's stash with the exception of the center block.  She did a great job at finding coordinating fabrics and finished this little quilt perfectly.  Her second quilt, so much fun!!  Take a moment to check out all of the little camping scenes on the fabric.  Of course we had to quilt little campers on it!

Diane in NH pulled together a wonderful blend of fabrics to create this space theme quilt.  The fabric show the planets, stars and even a bit of sunshine.  The black she used for the sashing makes the fabrics both dark and light really pop!  Great job Diane!

New quilter Donna brought this beautiful top she finished for her little granddaughter.  We selected a soft old fashion design for the quilting and finished it off.  

Dianne's first quilt fabric colors were inspired from the beautiful southwest.  Visiting her Mom in AZ often, she selected colors from that region.  Finishing the quilt in a traditional southwest style design worked perfectly.  Dianne's second quilt is from primary colors, simple design combined to make a simply fun quilt.  Dianne selected a circular quilting design for the finish.

Next batch of quilts are from Leslie here in NH.  First is another finished UFO from her Mom's stash.  Leslie finished this quilt for a niece.  Her second quilt is a blend of beautiful bright colors and an amazingly fun coordinating print.  The last quilt was made my her daughter Jamie for the new little one in their lives.  Complete with a coordinating pillow cover both will be perfect for the nursery.  

Mary Catherine is back again this month with a beautiful yellow jelly roll.  The grays are always striking when blended with a yellow.  We selected a soft floral modern design for the quilting.

Renie is ahead of the game with this Christmas quilt!  Way to go Renie!!  I believe she told me this was a stash buster finishing this top with fabric she had on hand.  I'm sure it's finished and all ready for the holidays!

This amazing quilt came from Susan here in NH.  A BOM that was a UFO.  How's that for quilting acronym's?  She did a great job fussy cutting one of the fabrics so there is a cardinal  in the center of each block.  

Well that's it for September.  I hope to be back very soon with the quilts from October, there are lots of them!!  Look forward to a wonderful posting!

As usual here's a link to more photos of these great quilts on the other blog:
