Completed Hunter's star quilts starting to show up!

Hello Friends.  Hard to believe that it's November! The weather has been so warm and sunny. Living in Northern Ontario, we know that it won't last and snow will be here sooner then later.  I thought I'd better get my outside decorating done while it was still nice.  Last year, my fingers froze and the earth in the pots was starting to get so hard that I was having a difficult time sticking things into them.   

With the holiday season fast approaching I thought it a good idea to start my Christmas sewing.  Now, why don't we learn and start in July or something.  But oh no, we wait until the man on the radio says, "41 days till Christmas eve".   I get a little butterfly in my stomach and think, "I wanted to make a new runner for the table, a new quilt for Jim for the couch....."  Well, I have one gift done, a set of placemats for my friend. 

I was playing with the migrating geese technique and one thing lead to another.  I have a lap quilt yet to tackle.  I am going to make a special lady a Hunter's Star quilt.  Ha Ha bet you didn't see that coming.  But the Hunter's Star is Oh so beautiful.  Here's the fabric I selected.  The star points are going to be alternating red and white. 

The quilters from the Hunter's Star workshop have been busy finishing up their projects.  Here is a few of the finished masterpieces.

 Sheila's creation, she says this is just the beginning and there will be more! Way to go!

It is so great to see everyones quilts.  Keep the photos coming, they are all so different.  

With the fall workshop done and out of the way, my mind starts planning for the next one in April.  I know what I'd like to do so I thought I would tease you a little and show you the fabric I picked out for the samples.  

 Ooooh! Jewel tones on black.

Of course I could not get out of the quilt shop without buying a little something for the house for the festive season.  Not sure when I'm going to get around to this one.  Maybe Santa will put it together for me.  Where are his elves?

I'm glad I could share all the beautiful quilts with all of you.  Now, I should go see if I can get some of my fabric cut before bed.  Thanks for dropping by.  Until next time, stay safe, watch out for the snow, and go quilt something for Christmas!
