Thanksgiving has gone by for another year and now we are thinking about Halloween. The colours in the Fall sky are beautiful at this time of year and leaf raking, costumes and pumpkins are still on going. I am trying to get my outside work done before the cold weather hits while working feverishly on Christmas quilting inside. The quilt studio is starting to get busy now, we have quilts coming in each day. Do you have your quilts ready for quilting yet? Please don't leave them until the last minute, get them in early to avoid disappointment.
The beavers are busy getting ready for winter, I guess that we are not the only ones busy at this time of year. Look at the yellows, greens, blues and browns in this picture, a nice choice of colours for a quilt, don't you think.
Today's quilt is called "Up the Escalator" and certainly reminds you of escalator steps. Bea has done a great job putting this quilt together and has made a good use of her colors. This quilt is 83.5" x 83.5" and is quilted in the pattern called "Floral Lights".
Bea picked variegated thread so she could see the quilting on the back of the quilt and give that little added touch to her quilt, doesn't it show the pattern nicely. Another great project done for Bea.
