October Accomplishments So Far

I spent several more nights this month making more On Ringo Lake blocks. Very slow progress, but I'm still working on it. It's about time to make more half square triangles.

I was able to get caught up on my Quilters Planner scrappy blocks. This is September
This on is October.
On Native American Day we had the day off work, so the kids and I went to Dad's and quilted. This is the t-shirt quilt I did with no thread breaking or skipped stitches. I bought Inspira Machine quilting needles and I was really impressed.
The kids were so good and they were working on a project with Dad and Ann, so I was able to finish 4 quilts, including my Scrappy Trip Around the World. 
Matthew Olson, the Extension Agent I work with asked me to quilt and bind the t-shirt quilt he made with his 94-year-old grandma who has never pieced a quilt. They did a great job and the quilt quilted beautifully. I was able to put the binding on by machine on Monday and finished the hand stitching on Tuesday. He loved it.
I made and quilted this OSU quilt for my SIL for her birthday. I was able to get it quilted and bound. 
I used up scraps to make her these two zippered bags.
I also made a tote bag with leftover fabric.

While I quilted Monday, the kids helped dad and Ann make pumpkin Rice Krispie treats.
My old co-workers got together for our friend Karen's son's wedding. Myself, Karen, and Tina at the reception.
