Three Jack o'Lanterns & A Little Punkin!~ Charlene Dakin

Three Jack o'Lanterns & A Little Punkin!~ Quilt by Charlene Dakin

DK Quilt Guild: A place for quilters to gather, share ideas, projects, and to make the world a better place, one quilt at a time. Join us and share your thoughts, projects, questions, and tips. Quilters here are at many different levels of skill. Beginners and non-quilters are welcome, too!

I haven't been able to sew or quilt very much lately. I have had many out-of-state guests, and my mom hasn't been well. Thankfully she is well now. Hoping my guests can arrive home safely which will allow me time to sew & complete my many UFOs and projects.

I attended the big quilt show called Pacific International Quilt Festival/PIQF last week. Thanks to Leu2500 for her diary and her administrative duties. I will have a future diary about PIQF. Now & then you may see some beautiful quilt photos within my regular DK comments. I try to attribute the quilt's title and quilter's name. My apologies; sometimes I take a photo and forget to photograph the title card. Which is unfair to the quilter. All the photos are mine & feel free to borrow/steal them.

Now that the Holidays are arriving very fast; are there any projects especially for the Holidays that you're working on?  This is an Open Thread Diary~ Let's chat quilts.

I've included some fun quilts for Halloween.

More Tagging tips:

A tag is a way to search for this diary. If someone is searching for "Barack Obama," is this a diary they'd be trying to find?

Use a person's full name, without any title. Senator Obama may become President Obama, and Michelle Obama might run for office.

If your diary covers an election or elected official, use election tags, which are generally the state abbreviation followed by the office. CA-01 is the first district House seat. CA-Sen covers both senate races. NY-GOV covers the New York governor's race.

Tags do not compound: that is, "education reform" is a completely different tag from "education". A tag like "reform" alone is probably not meaningful.

Consider if one or more of these tags fits your diary: Civil Rights, Community, Congress, Culture, Economy, Education, Elections, Energy, Environment, Health Care, International, Labor, Law, Media, Meta, National Security, Science, Transportation, or White House. If your diary is specific to a state, consider adding the state (California, Texas, etc). Keep in mind, though, that there are many wonderful and important diaries that don't fit in any of these tags. Don't worry if yours doesn't.
