Midweek Makers #137

Hello again - it's Midweek Makers time! And maybe squirrel chasing time too - it certainly was for me!

I was supposed to be working on an upcoming pumpkin idea, but when digging through the stash for orange fabrics, I came across 7 woodpile blocks plus fabric strips to make more.

These were leftover from one of my favorite autumn quilts, Falling Leaves.

So, of course I needed to make more for another quilt. And to use up the fabric (that was the real reason - wink wink!). I'll have more on the latest finish on Friday.

This week I'm featuring critters, especially these cuties:
from The Clever Chameleon,

                                              Dragonfly appliqué by Clever Chameleon

from Quilting Patchwork Applique,


and from Dreamworthy Quilts,


Aren't those adorable?

  1. Cute critters, thank you for featuring mine too ;)

  3. I love that first quilt you show - I called it by the wrong name and deleted the comment - at first glance I thought it was a log cabin quilt and then realized it was not - I like that pattern

  4. Your scraps sent me on the hunt for the original post for the falling leaves quilt, and then the book of the month it was in and then to Better World Books that is actually located 5 miles from me and I placed an order. See how you enabled me?!?

  5. Gorgeous quilt Susan. Thank you for the linky party.

  6. Hmmm...wonder what you're making! Hope you will link the squirrel project up with my DrEAMi! (Drop Everything And Make it!) linky at the end of the month. :-)

  7. It happens often to me when starting a project I've come across a stray pile of blocks! I enjoy finally being able to use them! I'm sure you will use them very wisely!!

  8. Falling Leaves is beautiful. Is it really time for fall projects? I am somewhat fascinated by the sleek deer in the background.

  9. I love sewing quilts using strips. It makes for a easy beautiful finish.

  10. I do a lot of squirrel chasing, too. It's always fun to run across extra blocks. Looking forward to seeing what you create.

  11. Hi Susan! Lovely, lovely fabrics and I can't wait to see your newest creation. And I really love those fireflies by Dione! She made the cleverest template for them. Happy Wednesday to you! ~smile~ Roseanne

  12. Fun to find those blocks! I'm sure your finish will be so pretty - especially in those colors!

  13. The Falling Leaves was such a gorgeous quilt. Looking forward to seeing what else you do with those blocks.

  14. It doesn't take much for the squirrels to take over LOL

  15. Thanks for the feature this week Susan - what a cute animal collection! Oh I love your falling leaves quilt too - a purple and green woodpile is so on my list of quilts I wish I had time to make!


Thank you so much for just made my day!
