A Little More BOAF...

The September and October Birds of a Feather blocks are now fused and ready to be machine blanketstitched. I placed the blocks so far on the design wall in the order they are put together in the book. I must say, I am loving this quilt more than ever!!! I have always been a sucker for red and green quilts. The photos in the Kansas City Star have never done this quilt justice. When I saw the first block stitched up in my LQS, I was so hooked. Hopefully, later this week I can post a photo of all my blocks--so far--in the layout from the book.
Here's hoping everyone has a Happy Halloween today. I always look so forward to the little trick-or-treaters coming to the door all dressed up! We tally each year how many we have and last year we had 150!!! My little subdivision doesn't even have half that many kids, but they are brought into the neighborhood by cars and vans and dropped off! I just hope the cold weather cooperates. I remember how much my two sons relished trick-or-treating---all those many years ago. May all your spooks be smiling one! Posted by Picasa

Hope you have a lot of trick-or-treaters! We may have 4 or 6 out here in the country! I know even around here the parents will take their kids to town (the town square merchants stay open late just to give out candy) or they will take them to subdivisions (more candy per steps!). Have a good one!

Happy Halloween! Those BOAF blocks are gorgeous! I can't wait to get that book. Another one for the stash, you know! LOL And that little prim 'jack' piece is sooo cute! Hope you have lots of little goblins.

Happy Halloween -- your Jack is such a cute fellow *s* Our neighborhood has grown up -- all the little ones that were here when we moved in are in high school, college and beyond. Hopefully we will shift back in the next few years -- grandkids, you know *s* Hope you have a fun one.

Oh your blocks are gorgeous! I have to admit, the more I am seeing these blocks done the more I"m liking them!

I really like your Birds of a Feather quilt. Can't wait to see it put together.

I am almost done with number 9 and yet Block 10 has yet to appear on the site for download. I emailed the guy I normally talk to and he didn't respond yet, so I'll try again tomorrow. I have the pattern in the book now, but I like to print out all the copies I use for making templates.

Your blocks look great! I plan to lay mine out too on the design wall and see what the quilt is going to look like this week!

I agree that this is going to be a beautiful quilt. Love the colors and the applique designs.

DH tallied 28, 2 less than last year. In years past we have had to turn off the lights after running out of goodies. The last 3 were our grandkids, they arrived late and we sent the bag home with them.

So many of the area churches offer alternative programs like Trunk or Treat around here. We never had a lot to begin with but we figured why bother--we'll just eat the candy. Of course, we usually bought our favorite, LOL.

Beautiful, I also can't wait to get the book and then find the time to stitch. Nancy in Mt
