How about the season premier of Yellowstone? Really good, wasn’t it?

I didn’t want to get behind in reader quilts so decided to post them now. The first one, the Lori Holt quilt, is not a DD but I wanted to include it because it’s so wonderful!

These little mini quilts are what I’m working on – using panels from the fabric line called Songbook which I received as a gift. So many possibilities!!

Time to get to work!

    The DD quilts are amazing, so much talent!
    Is the Yellowstone a Netflix series, it sounds good?

      Joyce from NY – it’s on Paramount but my library has all the dvd’s to check out.

    Great quilt show today Mary! Everyone has been busy. We have another sunny day here in New England. I’ll take it! Most of the autumn color is gone, sadly. All that’s left are the hickories and the oaks. A few maples but it’s really getting cold at night. Had a hard frost a few nights ago. My hens have all molted except for two – they’re in the process. Poor things, pin feathers everywhere and they look so small! Even the Orpingtons that usually seem huge – you can see that under all that fluff there’s a pretty small bird, haha! Mary, you mentioned parakeets – do you just have one? Aren’t they a great pet? I highly recommend them for people who want company but don’t have a lot of space. I have two and we love them. We don’t handle them – I wish I had taken more time to have them friendlier as one of them was hand raised by a breeder. The other one was a rescue and he’s very skittish. Anyway, we do love them.

      Janice Hebert – I did have two parakeets but one died. The remaining one is getting old so I hesitate to get him a young pal. When this one dies I’m done with house birds. But I’ll miss their company in the sewing room!

    Love the quilts! The second to last is my favorite. Is that your and from the Songbrook collection? I NEED those panels! Thanks for always sharing – been reading your blog a long time and love it! Have a good day!

    I love all of the Halloween quilts!!! Such fun!

    Fall has returned to Colorado—it’s an average of 25 degrees cooler today than it was over the weekend—Brrrrr!!

    Even though I am not a quilter or a crafter, I do enjoy seeing all of the things you post on your blog, Mary. We are having some wonderful fall weather here in north central Iowa right now. Most of my trees have lost their leaves except for the large red oak tree out back on the riverbank. It is beautiful; maybe this is its best and most colorful year so far (I have lived here for 30 years). Bailey is having her morning nap on my bed; life is good!

    An amazing group of quilts. thanks for posting Mary–I enjoy seeing them!

    Beautiful Quilts!!

    The quilts are inspiring!! Yellowstone did not disappoint! I realized how much I’d missed Beth.. ha. Also.. it’s not a series for the faint of heart. If bad language offends you, don’t watch it! I’m amazed at how these writers can twist the plot one more time after you think all the twisting has been done. I had to watch a Hallmark movie afterwards so I could have happy thoughts before bed! Enjoying this nice weather.. later In the week is forecasted possible snow in SE SD.

    Oh, yes, Yellowstone was great. I don’t appreciate the language, but I’m not going to wilt if I hear it. The story and the actors are great. And I watched the 2 hours twice. Maybe westerns will come back. It sounds like Paramount has more to come.
    Launa, you live right in the middle of the west, one of prettiest places on earth.
    Keep quilting. Betty in Rapid City

    Yellowstone was so good! Lots of twists n turns so far!
    The DD quilts are wonderful! I got Temecula’s Mini Monday pattern ( New Album) written down so I can bring out fabrics and get started cutting the 4 blocks. Anyone else been following along on this free sew a long?
    It was a 🥶 chilly 20o up here @ 6200 feet altitude this morning! Glad we burn wood as it’s so cozy in here now. During the Trail Creek wild fire all the cut wood we had stacked on the upper deck had to be thrown off and moved to other areas. Forest Firemen helped us! Now we have moved it back. We cut our own wood in prep for winter…I say it warms us then and also in winter!
    No snow today; just sunny for now!
    Last day for Elk hunting today.

      Laguna, I am following Temecula Quilts Mini Mondays. I have to copy the directions down. I was keeping up with each pattern, but I have gotten behind on the last couple. The quilt squares are easy, and they use up some of my fabric stash.

    I am into all the hallmark and lifetime holiday movies this time of year and not into anything violent. Highway to Heaven on last Saturday night was a remake of Michael Landons so just up my alley.
    Wonderful quilt show from all and Witches Night Out is on my radar to make as I bought the fabrics and pattern but have not started it yet. Love the snowman one too. Thank you all for sharing your lovely works with us.

    What lovely quilts! All inspiring. I didnt watch Yellowstone didnt like adverts. Watch British Comedy. We still have colorful tress here southwestern Ohio( near Cincinnati) started out 31 degrees end up 70 with lots of sunshine today. Had physical therapy went great but tried! How is the one goat is she ok? Did she ever go in the barn? Have wonderful week

    1. Mary Etherington Post author

      MARY Rhodes – no, the goat still won’t go inside but later this eeek it’s going to rain and get cold. Maybe then?

    Beautiful quilts today. You all did a great job. Worked outside today, it was so nice and could work just wearing a t-shirt. Trimmed up some pine trees that had a lot of dead limbs. Trimmed up as far as I could with a reciprocating saw.

    Working on a bargello tree skirt and drumroll please, a pizza box with the beginnings Log Cabin Plus quilt that I started in 2000. I bet someone has a much older project wishing to be finished.
    Happy Days

    All the quilts today are wonderful and I don’t even really like Halloween too much. The Lori Holt quilt is beautiful and with a perfect color pallet. It all makes me want to finish a project.
