Working at home!

Weel, I was to have an overtime day at the hospital today, but there were not enough patients in our unit, so I am off today. So I can catch up on my housework and try to make some progress on my quilting projects. It is fall-like here, not quite so hot and just a touch of coolness in the air in the mornings...I love it!!

I am going to start "the old and the new" on my blog, so I can show you what I am currently working on and also share my old quilts and some antiques as well!!

The little yellow quilt was inspired by one of you bloggers...and I can't for the life of me figure out where the idea came from! But the minute I saw the quilt, it just looked like sunshine to me and I had to make one. I did not have any yellow fabric except two scraps, so had to go buy some, and now I have a selection of yellows to go in my quilts, too.

The other quilt is my cat quilt (inspired name, huh!). I had fun quilting it from the back, using the star patterned backing fabric as my guide. Sheer fun!

Have a fun Monday, all.

You know I've seen the little quilt that inspired yours and I can't remember either. Yours looks nice and cheerful too.

The yellow stars look so happy! Did you say antique quilts?! I'll be checking back!

Very cute, I'm working on a small quilt tonight right now and I love seeing other small ones.
