September Sewing

I've been making Simply Swoon quilts like they are going out of style. This one is for one of our work-study student's little boy who loves cowboys. I'll get some minkee and quilt it up the next time I go to Dad's.
I've been busy making Quilts of Valor blocks for a charity sewing block drive we're doing in our private FB group. I've made 5 so far, but have 35 cut out. I hope to send some and use some to make a quilt for a co-worker. These are so quick to make. They are fast to cut out and fast to sew. I got three from each fat quarter and they took about 30 minutes to sew all 5. 
My hubby needed a case for his Ipad for work, so I quilted up Chiefs fabric and made this Zip It Up case for him. 

I put a padded pocket on the inside to protect it a bit more. I did make it a bit over an inch bigger to compensate for the size of the ipad.
I had leftover Chiefs fabric, so I cut out and made an Easy Does it bag for my son. He loves it for his toys. I'm not sure it's my favorite bag, but I have 2 more cut out, so I'll get them made. 

I quilted up this panel quilt for my husband's cousin who had a baby recently, but she decided not to attend our family event, so I may be gifting it to someone else. 
I quilted my Good Morning a couple weeks ago with red minkee on the back. I'm going to gift it to an instructor, but she's teaching on Zoom for the next couple weeks, so it may be a while before I get it gifted. 
I'm making progress on my Everyday Handmade EPP project. I have 3 sections stitched together so far. 
I've also been working on my Swoon blocks. I now see that I screwed up on 2 corners and need to re-do them. I'm so thankful I just caught them instead of after I quilted it. Now I can take it apart and fix it. I'll also check my other blocks as well. I did this on the Cowboy Simply Swoon too. 
I've been busily making Yellow and blue Blue Ridge Beauty blocks I finished 5 more. Last night I sewed 27 more strip sets and matched them up, so I have more 4 patches to make. 
I made this Zip It UP in Everyday Handmade.
It has mesh on one side and vinyl on the other side. 
There is a  front pocket as well.
I sued up some scraps to make a Piecekeeper. It's a bit smaller than the original, but it used up the fabric. 

I finished making all my Harmony blocks in Nova fabric. I squared them up and set them aside to piece together at the retreat. 
I finished up the Woven Star blocks in Sakura. I'm hoping to make these into a baby quilt. 

 I've been doing quite a bit of sewing and making bags. It's relaxing to me.

You really have been busy, and I can't wait to receive a few QOV blocks from folks. That large Swoon block is so perfect for a kid sized quilt. That one is cute as can be.
