What's on the line?

Pretty red hats are on the line today............

This is a quilt that my mother made about ten years ago. She found the pattern in a craft and quilting magazine. She was never a member of the Red Hat Society but she loved the idea of it.  My dad enjoyed watching her make each of the hat blocks and then decorating them with bits of ribbon, trims and buttons. A couple years after she made it, she gave it to me for Christmas. It hangs in my sewing room and as soon as I get the last corner of my sewing room all organized, I'll take a photo and show you where it hangs permanently.
You can see in the background that the leaves are beginning to turn and fall is nearly here. It officially arrives this Thursday!!!

Here's what's going to be on the line really soon..........
maybe even next Monday. It's Pat Sloan's "Baby Baskets" pattern and it's all pinned and ready for quilting. I had hoped to have it quilted by today but it's been crazy busy around here. I'll share some photos each day this week of all the stuff that's making it so busy. It's all good!

As always........Have a great Monday!!

Love the Red Hats, much cuter than the actual hats I have seen. I made one with that had hats with a matching shoe or gloves in the block. My friend who was so into everything Red Hat recieved it.
Thanks for sharing.
