Simple Whatnots Club


I finished the first little quilt in the Simple Whatnots club by Kim Diehl. This one is called Hopscotch and also has a pieced version if you don't like applique. I signed up for the club at Little Quilts Shop, I like how they offered a starter kit up front and then get the patterns each month. This allows me to add a few fabrics from my stash and is budget friendly.
I can't believe how much canning I'm doing. Three of us are working together to get all this canning done. We've finished tomatoes, peaches, cherries, pickles, peach chutney, cucumber relish, salsa, pepper jelly and beets. The peach chutney and tomatoes are shown in this picture. The weather has been great and we are able to do most of the canning outside. One more day of canning and that's it, we are done for the year. Back to quilting soon. 

If you are local, the quilt group I belong to Countryside Quilters is having it's first quilt show.
Sat, Sept 20th from 10am to 4pm. 
Location Willoughby Reformed Church, 20525 - 72nd Ave, Langley BC
It looks like we will have over 400 quilts to show.

Happy Quilting

Cute as a button quilt and you are canning too! Yahoo for home canned style. I also live in B.C. and love to follow new friends in Canada!

A sweet finish. The applique could be done in wool also.

Love your Kd quilt! You are a busy girl these days but I am sure you will really appreciate it come winter. Nothing like home canned goods.

Love your little quilt. We are doing the Whatnots Club at our shop. We did a "fat quarter pack" as a starter. I have 14 gals signed up in the club. I have to get busy and get my samples finished. You have inspired me to keep working on them. Have a great week.
