How long, a month long, that long?????

New, old toy!
                               My friend, Deanna gave me this vintage quilt rack. It's all set up,
                                                   marked and ready to hand quilt.
Marking is finished and ready to quilt.
                                                  I have a long ways to go, who knows,
                                               I might have it quilted before next spring!

A month ago I found 45 Dresden Plate circles that were at a tag sale for $ 7.00. Couldn't pass them up. I have appliqued 35 plates and centers on 10 inch blocks.  
A few more to do and then must decide plan for construction, any ideas?

Marge knows I have a Dutch vintage collection and
                                     surprised me with this adorable hot pad holder!                                                  
"Sister's Choice" blocks are done, all 30 of them!
                                                         And--- it all started with this block.        
                                                    I'm finished with my nine patches-- total of 100!
The swap is now closed but you can visit Barb's blog for her wonderful tutorial.
Finished 2 more Santa's

                                                       Fall is for baking Zucchini Coconut bread....
...a friend gave me some zucchini's --- and these loaves didn't last long! If you would like the recipe, I will email it to you. 
A change of season is approaching--- it's time to start decorating for fall.
