Primitive Quilts & Projects...

I thought that I was done with fall things, not that I  make alot of fall things anyway, but I finally got a copy of the Fall 2011 issue of Primitive Quilts & Projects and I just had to get out my wool stash and start cutting and stitching! 
Besides finishing up some aprons, I worked with some wools this week...
This Star Pumpkin Mat was a design in the magazine by Kerry Arthur of Calico Rabbit Designs.
I love it!  I had all the wools in my stash as well as the giant rick rack, which I found at Sew Sweet Quilt Shop , in Brunswick, MO.
This one will go to the mercantile but I will most likely be making another to keep!
The other little ditties are wool pinkeeps....filled with ground walnut shells.  I used a few templates from other designs in the magazine, as well.

Needing something to hang aprons from, I also made up a couple of make-do peg racks.  The slats are from an old chicken carrier from my grandparents is made using  ceramic insulators for the pegs and the other some hooks from my  stash.   I think both turned out pretty neat and will serve their purpose well.

Rylee is home with mama today since there isn't any school today, so I'm going to finish (hopefully) another wool mat that's featured in this fall issue, Oak Leaves & Acorns by Maggie Bonanomi. 

Then on to some other fun projects...
 I found this piece of fabric on a recent trip to Sew Sweet Quilt Shop.
The possibilities with panels such as this are endless.....
This one is Maison de Garance by FRENCH GENERAL for moda
While most will be made into pillows, some will be incorporated into aprons, table mat and/or runner.

So that's the plan for my day....and it looks like the sun is going to shine.....

Enjoy your day!
