In addition to finishing my goal for ALYOF, I was able to finish several other quilts. I had a quilting marathon at my dad's house over the long weekend. I finished Mathew's Toy Story quilt, including the binding on it.
I started making Bendy Bags and couldn't stop. I made one for me and one for a co-worker/friend who is leaving.
One for Mikaela to put her My Little Pony's in.
Mathew got one made from scraps of his Train fabric.
I made Ann a new horse purse.
A Toy Story Bendy Bag for Mathew.
Since Club Sew has been all about miniatures, I made this miniature rail fence with scraps from the larger rail fence I made last month. This was so quick and easy and I just love miniature quilts.
I also made a miniature granny square block. The binding was not fun on this, but it is done!
I finished the second baseball star quilt. This is the scraps from the first one I made a few months ago.
Another Bendy bag for a co-worker who is leaving.
Mathew's Tonka truck quilt is almost done. Just the binding left to sew and I have to administer another test on Friday, so it should get done then.
My biggest accomplishment was finishing my mom's first quilt, made with scraps from shirts she made my dad. I think she took this class in 1985, so the fabric was sheer and I did a wobbly back and forth line across, similar to what she might have done. The binding is on and I was able to sew it down a few weeks ago.
While we were at the ranch the kids got to ride in the tractor with grandpa. They loved it! They did it the next weekend too and were in heaven. So fun to see them playing out in the country.
I'm linking up with the ALYoF Finishing party for October. There are still a few days left and I have 7 more Bendy bags cut out!

This weekend for the first time in 10 years, I have this 3 day weekend off. I haven’t had Native American Day off, so I'm looking forward to it. We plan to work on my dad's deck, but that also means I'll be at my dad's house, where my quilt frame is, so I plan to have a quilting marathon. I have 4 quilts prepped and ready. My October goal is to quilt and bind Mikaela's Frozen quilt.
