September flew by and it appears October is going to do the same. I've been very busy finishing up UFO's and trying to get a bunch of bags done.
I worked on several blocks of On Ringo Lake and I think I finished 5 more blocks. I also finished a lot of the corner pieces.
My biggest finish was my Farm Girl Vintage quilt. It was quilted by Marie Brewer and I quickly finished it.
I love the farm animals on it, which is why I had Marie quilt it.
I'm loving the way the quilting turned out.
I spent an afternoon quilting and was able to quilt Cobblestone, done in Glamping Gypsies fabric.
I finished the binding and I'm so happy with how it turned out. It will be a quilt for our bed in the camper.
A close up of our quilt.
Another look at the quilting. It's quilted with a light cream King Tut.
I bought this pattern at Mikaela's begging and then promptly lost it back in June. I found it the end of September when I was going on a work trip. I'm so happy I found it!
I flew to St. Louis for a work conference the last week of September. I took my hexie diamonds (or popcorn as Regina calls them.) and sewed them on the plane rides. I have them all sewn together and ready to make into a table runner.
We toured the Arch. If you haven't been there recently, the new visitor center is amazing.
I loved the trip and learning all the history.
I also worked hard to finish my scrappy trip around the world top. I took this picture and then realized I had two blocks wrong. I fixed it before quilting it.
I feel like I was pretty productive. I spent quite a bit of time working on a Tudor bag to take on my trip, then miss cut, got frustrated, and quit on it, so it's still in pieces.
