May I present the following..
Top left is Karen...@
Click here to Karen's blog- Karen's floral, really captured fall flowers...they screamed end of summer...like the sunflowers ready to go to seed...With our sun diminishing, this captured for me the brightness of our fall season in all its beauty.. Worthy of a standing ovation for our November Banner...Check out her office art, also colourful and certainly welcomes in a new season I included the link to her office art here Sew congrats Karen on being selected for our November Banner.
Top Centre is Melissa @
Click here to Melissa's blog Melissa was one of the first to send me in her quilt photo ....Her photos were rather dark and really did not capture the true essence of her creativity, however she took some direction and returned them to me, much brighter . It was hers that I matched all the entries with.
The additonal leaves that the wind swept upon it, make it clear for me this was one that would be a perfect addition for our November banner. Melissa has had some success at Moda Bakeshop for being a chef...check her out, you will not be disappointed at her unique style...Braided irish chain quilt can be seen here this is one of her latest...the Braided Irish Chain Quilt...just lovely indeed... Sew congrats Melissa on being selected for our November Banner..
Top right is Millie @
Click here to Millie's blog Millie , well if you don't know her, you should, she is one amazing long
armer and quilter. I was mesmerized by this fall quilt...believe it or not she had it as a draw for a giveway...imagine that? and surprisingly enough I did not win it - darn it lol
This was her GIVEAWAY I liked it for many reasons, and I chose this one piece of it as a reflection
of Thanksgiving to remind us, to be sew thankful for all the talent that surrounds us...And forgive me for saying this Millie..but you had me at the DOTS..I am sew passionate about polka dots... Sew Millie dear..you did not even enter this quilt, I took it upon myself to capture it and bring it here for all to see.... Sew congrats Millie on being selected for our November Banner. ( those who leave comments, I check often on your blogs looking for hidden treasures)
Bottom left is Ethne @
Click here to Ethne's blog Ethne is a quilter that is filled with imagination. And she has not been quilting very long. I chose this one as it reflected something creative and many would recognize it..Tim Burton's depiction of a pumpkin coming to life...The colours were perfect addition to our November Banner. Check out Ethne she is new to quilting but not limited to where her imagination soars....Sew congrats Ethne on being selected for our November Banner.
Bottom right is Polly @
Click here to Polly's blog Polly, what can I say about Polly...she loves fall and Halloween, and when I saw this fall banner I thought, oh yes, it will blend perfectly with all the others...Orange was certainly the theme here....sew much sew, we are actually doing the same quilt that DES at Quilt Taffy designed...We chose it the same weekend we were both going to different retreats...Now that is serendipity. You have to check her site, as she just completed her topper..I am completing mine this week...Polly is one quilter you will come across through many blogs..she is always one of those who leaves nice comments...Sew congrats Polly on being selected for our November Banner...
