This month has given me a chance to get a lot more done than I ever anticipated. I was able to sew together the scrappy granny square blocks, quilt them, and get the binding on. I even had 2 weeks to spare! It's now a table topper for my desk at work.
Paul took the kids to the races two nights this month, so I was able to get 3-4 hours each night of un-interrupted sewing time! I was able to finish this professional tote sample for the store.
While we were on our staycation I was able to sew the top of the Cowgirl Coins quilt together. We went out to my dad's in the middle of the week and I got to quilt 4 quilts, including this one. I put the binding on this week and this scrap quilt is done!
I'm teaching a Bendy Bag class in November, so I made up a couple samples from scraps I had left over from other bags.
I've been busy keeping up with the Farm Girl Vintage sew along. These are my first 15 blocks, 1 3rd of the way done!
While we were camping I attempted to start working on my Twist and Turn quilt. I was so confused! I spread it out on my aunt's island and got the centers for 4 blocks made. Once I realized how to make the blocks, I realized one of the pieces was cut incorrect x80! So I had to improvise. I still don't have the first four blocks made, but I have all 20 blocks made into block kits. Slowly but surely I'll get this quilt done or it will become something totally different.
At my dad's I quilted the Good Night Irene quilt. I still need to get the binding on it... maybe tonight. I'd really like to count the finish in my totals for the month.
One night I finished 5 of these sweetpea pods. They are leftovers from bendy bags I made last year.
On Tuesday night while we were at Hart Ranch, we went and sewed with the Quilts of Valor quilters. I was able to cut out and get about 1/3 of the blocks made. It felt good to do this charity quilting.
We had so much fun during our week at Hart Ranch. We did play mini-golf and swim a lot as well as drive around in the golf cart with my aunt. A very relaxing week of vacation!
