Little bits of everything...

Hi Y'all! This Candy Corn boot is quilted! A stipple all over...I was really scared to have sewing over the embroidery, but it looks OK, and I am now coloring in the boot and jacks. I see now why I should have done the coloring first. But hey, I may make another version of this someday...if I can pluck the gumption to do all that embroidery again!!
Hand quilting in progress on the little circle quilt...
Lyn's quilt is done to the binding stage...I left the center empty, as that is where I am putting my candle holder, and this piece will be a table topper. Love it!
Threads (always, I cut mine all at once at the last of a project)...and hand quilting in progress on the Poodle Paw quilt...I love this a lot!
A little leftover quilt, made out of pieces of this and that...may become a bathmat!!

And scraps!! I am cutting out these blocks...have quite a few cut out and they are really fun to make!! Tyring to use every little piece of fabric up!!! These are eight inches finished.


I hope each of you has a great day today!!

As usual you have some great projects finished and in the works. I knew you would get the Halloween one finished quickly so you could have it on display. I love it!

Oh Julie, your Candy Corn stitchery/quiltlet is so fun! I love love love it!! The border/blocks really sets off the embroidery. Excellent job, girlfriend! And I can't wait to see more of the poodle pawprints :D quilt. :)

Oh, I'm loving all of your projects! That Candy Corn Boot is so darned cute! I actually have an antique boot just like that; it on an antique cobbler's form. And your two blocks at the end using up your scraps....they are sweet! I think I might need to do some of those, too! I might need to go smaller though....there are so many little scraps hanging around!

I had to enlarge the picture of the Candy Corn Boot to be able to see the candy corn. Too cute! I like the taste of candy corn.

I have quilted right over embroidery blocks in a quilt and find that it looks fine. I have matched the thread to the background of the block as best as I can.
