It’s Dirty Dozen Day!

Your number for September is 11 – ELEVEN.

I admit I’m going to cheat on our color challenge and let myself choose our September color because I know we all want to make a pumpkin quilt of some kind.

Our color for September is ORANGE.

On the last day of August I finished my yellow project. It started out as our pattern called Jake’s Quilt but due to certain fabric restrictions it is modified but basically the same.

Three almost matches!

I have a small pumpkin project planned and will pull that together today around a doctor appointment and a dentist appointment. So glad to get them all done in one week.

So now it’s time for you to find your Project #11 or decide on an orange project. Good luck!

    What a fun way to use leftover geese. Great yellow.
    Jake is great too, and I notice #3 is sticking to you like glue!

    I try to group my medical appointments too. So glad to hear that your foot situation isn’t as severe as you thought; sending up prayers on your behalf for pain-free days ahead. Jakes Quilt is very pretty, it is visually appealing with that color combination. This is the perfect time to work on those orange UFO quilts! I love the name “Keeper”. 🙂

    I love your quilt! Also love Three! He’s such a beautiful cat! And adore Keeper and those big, gorgeous ears. Yesterday’s picture of him with those big ears reminded me of a German Shepherd we had a long time ago. She grew into her big ears and was so beautiful and smart! I bet Keeper will too and he has a very intelligent look!
    I need to get busy on a quilt project. Have not done any sewing this summer. Congratulations on being able to finish your August project on the last day of August! You are an inspiration.

      Diane in MD – I also thought he had a German Shepherd look to him – maybe I should have him tested. It would be fun to know. When people ask me what kind he is, I say black or brindle.

    I’d love to start an orange project, but my evenings tend to be spent with a Beamer not a Bernina. LOL

    Three is getting to be a big “ham” and no wonder. He’s very photogenic. Glad your foot is getting better. I keep saying that God is telling you to slow down and start taking life a bit easier.

    So happy to hear that your foot issue will eventually heal, that’s great!
    And … did you see what’s on Paramount this weekend?? Yep, another Yellowstone marathon … time to sit and quilt. 🙂

    So Mary does it look like you will be in the foot bump club or will it go away?
    The quilts are very striking as always. Yellow is one color I don’t have a lot of in my stash but it sure makes up pretty! And JB3 is playing the quilt model role perfectly. Now orange I have soooo many UFO’s in but one in particular is calling me to finish.

    Thanks for the quilt show. The bright yellow reader quilt with the scattered flying geese blocks is a real eye catcher. Love both of the yellow quilts! The last few days have been just gorgeous with clear skies and a nice breeze. The air is so clear, you can tell Fall is right around the corner. My favorite time of year!

    Love seeing all the quilt pictures. I especially love the yellow, orange and blue reader quilt. I am wondering if it is a pattern, or something they just came up with. Either way, it’s lovely. Love the name, Keeper. Very clever. I know you will take good care of him. We are getting ready to go to Arizona for the cold weather months. Over a month ago, I packed up a big box of fabric to take. Now i can’t remember what I packed, and am thinking about unpacking it and repacking. 🙂 Should be a beautiful day too…. cooler temps!

      Karen H. thanks for the kind words about my quilt. It was not a pattern. I have been using up scraps all year and have made many coin strips combined with spare flying geese.
