Out of the kitchen (briefly) and back to the sewing machine. For more than a week now, I have had the fabrics piled on my sewing table for the next top from Prairie Children and Their Quilts - Bear Paw. One of the joys in these little quilts is the speed and ease in which they come together. I hope to layer it and begin quilting this evening. I also played with some fabrics to use for my Four Seasons Swap - Winter quilt. This is what I've chosen so far. The light fabric on top does not photograph well. It is a Brannock and Patek jacquard. I have gotten a good start on my piece, but I won't share it here. Since I don't know my partner yet, I'm not sure this is my final plan. Sure is fun to play though.

Okay, back to the kitchen for me - there's an apple pie to be baked.

Very cute! It's fun isn't it to sit and in about 2 hours have the little quilts all done and ready for quilting!

I like very much the prairie quilt (as usual!) and I think the fabrics for the 4SQS look just right. Take care.

Always great to see a new quilt from your book, why don´t you take one picture of those you have already done and post? It would be fun to see them all together!

Happy Thanksgiving to you!
I love the Bear's paw, such a fabulous quilt, would go well with my selection of old shirts, especially now I shouted myself the triangulations CD rom!
Too organized with the 4 season's already!! Just doesn't feel like winter to me, but a fun swap to be in, none-the -less!! Tracey

Libby - I absolutely ADORE the Nativity quilt you have pictured on your blog header. I am in the process of collecting dozens of nativity ornaments so one day I can have an entire tree filled with them - I would LOVE to make a quilt like this to display near the tree. Can you please tell me where to purchase the pattern?
