September Quilting Accomplishments

September was a very productive month!! I was able to bind the June Quilt It's made entirely of scraps from our wedding and honeymoon quilts. I made it entirely from the stash. I still have plenty of purple scraps.
Mathew and Mikaela wanted minkee pillowcases, so I made one for Mathew. He loves it, but it didn't turn out as well as I expected.
My dad and his wife wanted to give our little "bro" a wedding present to go with the quilt I made him, so I made pillows to match.
My oldest UFO is finished. I made this wall hanging from my Ahhhh blocks. They were all EPP blocks. The entire top is EPP. I started it in 2013.
I made my friend's sister a tag blanket for her new daughter. She loves UK Basketball, so I made it to represent those colors.
A picture of me the day I gave a presentation about myself to our staff.
I made a goal to work on 1 block a week of En Provence. I was able to get this block made this week.
My brother's best friend married this month and we all went to the wedding. They are huge Harley fans, so I used this panel and Crown Royal blocks to make the quilt. It has black minkee on the back.
They opened it the next morning.
It worked out for Paul and I to go to my dream/bucket list concert Garth Brooks in Sioux Falls the day after the wedding. My dad and his wife took the kids home. We didn't get home until 11 PM Sunday night, but it was so worth it. I loved it. My hubby isn't a big fan, but he did indulge me!
This just made my year!!
My numbers are still looking great! I would like to use 150 yards this year.

Yards In this Month: 18
Yards Out this Month: 26.25
Yards In this Year: 77.75
Yards Out this Year: 200.75
For a total of 123 yards used!

Love the Harley quilt. Great layout and colors.

Isn't it fun to make a quilt entirely out of stash? I need to get back to doing more of those because my scrap bins are overflowing.

I bet you'll get to the stash goal at the rate you're going. I have to say I am impressed that your oldest UFO is from 2013...mine is from much earlier than that! I didn't finish much when I first started quilting, so I have some vintage projects that need to get done. You had a great month for finishes and so glad you got to see Garth - we saw him here last night and the show was fantastic - he is such a great entertainer!
