I’ve been planning a lot of sewing over the last couple of days and my project queue is growing!
I’ve started another Patchwork Pumpkin table runner, this one is already sold to a friend in CA. I put the patchwork squares together tonight and will start cutting out the pumpkins tomorrow. I’m hoping to have this one completed by the end of the week…that’s do-able,I think 😉
I entered a drawing for fabric and thread being hosted by Robert Kaufman on Instagram. The requirements were to make a specific patterned block using either Kona fabrics or Essex Linen. Since I had a FQ bundle of Kona solids I pulled that out and made the block last night. It measures 20×20! Now that I’ve made that big block I think I’ll make 3 more to match and call it a baby blanket.
I joined another quilt along…this one is being hosted by “SewFreshQuilts” and it’s this adorable and aptly named “Dog Gone Cute” quilt. Thankfully it doesn’t start until Sept 1st so I have some time to prepare…whew!
Lastly, back in early July I finished the quilt tops for Grandson #1 and Grandson #2. A friend of a friend recently purchased a Long Arm quilting machine and she offered me a break to quilt both blankets…so I took her up on it. I just got the quilts back tonight and they look FANTASTIC! I haven’t taken any pictures yet and I still need to trim and put the binding on so I’ll have plenty of pictures in a few days…yay!!
That’s about all for now…G’night!
