We have wonderful sponsors this month - three (3) winners will be randomly chosen from those that link up in both the goal and the finish event. Plus anyone linking up will earn an entry for the bonus prize. (Bonus prize to be awarded in January - you can earn up to 3 entries by joining the link-ups October through December.)

Natalia partners with her mom, Kathleen Whiting, also an award winner quilting, for patterns and fabric designs. (See a cute mom / daughter photo on their about us page.) Together they have written five books and you will be inspired by her free motion quilting designs and tutorials. Their two fabric lines - Thrive and Flourish - are just beautiful and coordinate well together.

My goal for October is to get the quilting done on my half-rectangle triangle (HRT) quilt. There are 720 of these HRTs, all made with Moda Sweetwater fabric. The quilt measures 72 x 80.
