Pies, a finish, and a couple of little quilts!

Well, let me tell you I have been very busy today! I have lots to show and some to tell.

Above is a little quilt top I recently finished. I had some leftover triangles from a past project and wanted a small quick something to do, so, I put them together into a "Broken Dishes" block. I am really loving the way this one turned out! :0)
I also recently put this table runner together. It's from a Primitive Pieces by Linda pattern called "Primitive sketches". I have it basted and ready to be hand quilted.
This is another very recent little quilt I did from leftover reproduction fabrics. It's also basted and ready to be hand quilted. These little quilts should take me no time at all to finish once I sit down and do them.
This one on the other hand will take me much longer! A sneak peek of the next large quilt I will be hand quilting. I just finished basting this one together. All these hand quilting projects will keep me warm and cozy as I stitch them through the winter. :0)
And yes, I have FINALLY finished hand quilting this one!! Hooray!! I have been working on this one for a very long time. It's called "Coming Home". I used all Thimbleberries fabrics in it.
Here's a close up view of the quilting I did on this one. I have put the binding on and just need to stitch it down Whoopee!!!
This little house reminds me of the home I lived in when I was living in New Hampshire! :0)
Apple Pies. Pies, pies pies and more pies!! This is what I've been working on today! I wish you could smell them. Yummy yummy. I baked three apple pies and one pumpkin. I only took a picture of the apple pies. Mr. Pumpkin is still in the oven and due out soon. I am taking advantage of the time I have left so I can blog about it. ( Or is that brag about it). It's a lot of work but they will taste oh so wonderful once we dig into them. :0)

    Oh my goodness your quilts are just gorgeous! I love every one you shared. The piecing is so precise on the house quilt and the hand quilting is awesome! I can't believe that you have the patience to hand quilt....that is becoming a lost art. I hope to someday hand quilt something.
