I should work on my Baltimore Album Quilt.
I have culled it down to 5 blocks (on point). So I really only need to square them up & cut the setting triangles. (I also need to decide if I will add a border. I won't be doing any more appliqué - I want fancy quilting in the setting triangles...)

My quilting group does some gift quilts (significant birthday, retirement, moving, baby, wedding) & they are all different.
This is our latest. There are fasteners on the back so the arrangement can change or they can be hung one at a time...
Mine is the pink cat.

that hung (are hanging) in my LQS. These are by Georgina B. Fries of bellweatherdrygoods.com & are for sale.
While I will never make one of these, I really like this quilt. The simple repetition, the color scheme, the scrappiness...

Another quilt that hung in the LQS. This one was there to help sell the pineapple ruler. I am a big fan of scrappy
(my hexagon love quilt will probably end up looking something like this)
quilts but this may be too chaotic for me...

Anyone in Delaware?
I've been through Delaware several times either on the train or in the car (back when we drove to NY), but I am not sure that we have ever stopped.
My grandparent lived in Maryland my whole life so when we visited we may have gone to Delaware.

I'm a baster. Are you?
The pan drippings (We are not gravy people.) and a good portion of those bones are already simmering to make stock.
(I serve plates of food, so the bird does not have to be carved at the table.)
Since it is only the three of us this year, the breasts are already in the fridge waiting to become sandwiches!
In addition to the turkey, we have homemade cranberry sauce, homemade stuffing, butternut squash, brussels sprouts, mixed sweet, white, & purple potatoes & a baby pumpkin pie. (If you buy the baby instead of the grandma pie then you don't fell obligated to eat it all.)
Jacob is reading as I type - he just asked, "Do we have a purple pumpkin pie?"
Happy Thanksgiving to those of you in the US.
I hope that everyone has something to be thankful for even if you are not celebrating the holiday.
I have enough to make "enough" 2 fabric 16-patches.
I have several single shott cottons that I would like to include.
What would you do?
(The florals are 99% Liberty Lawn, the solids/stripes are shott cottons - Oak Shott & Kaffe Fassett)

In my local quilt shop, they have quilts up be Susan Grancio (she sells the pattern) so that they can advertise & sell the patterns. (She includes a couple of the harder to acquire novelty charms - like the US Capital Building.)
Where are you? I am near the top of the sheild next to the lady bug & Capital building.

8:23 PM – Republican House, Democratic Senate, and possibly Obama being re-elected. A $7 billion election that changes absolutely nothing. Awesome.
We all know how it ended up...
