Late, Late, Late with Design Wall Monday 10-1-12

Happy October everyone!

I am so late today, so many things to do including setting McGee up for his heartworm treatment tomorrow.  So I am in a state.

I have red beans and sausage cooking, since today is Monday and it is Southern Louisiana!

I still have the Jack and Gourdy Throw a Party on my design wall, but the back has been completed and it needs to be sandwiched for quilting.  I was thinking I could get some orange an purple cotton thread and do a nice hand stitching on the pumpkins and candy corn.  I think that would be wonderful.  I do have all month, you know!

Tomorrow I will start a new quilt.  I am going to cut out two Southwestern Quilts so Ann and I can work on them during the retreat this weekend.

And I have the Saints quilt for my delightful nephew Matthew, who loves my quilts and the Saints, but not necessarily in that order.  His cats are named Drew Brees and Deuce McAllister (who used to be a Saint, he must have gotten traded off because he is not on the roster for this year!)

This is a similar pattern to the one Patty the Quilt Lady did for a wedding quilt.  I think she may still be working on the quilting.  She does this wonderfully close line quilting that I envy so much.  I have always wanted to do that but get really impatient before the end of quilting.  What I do is quilt lines 1 inch apart and go back if I have the inclination.  (Most times I don't.....)

So that is what is going on, heartworms, the Southwest and the Saints.
