Lots of projects

I not only finished the Swoon Sixteen top but I also pulled out a long forgotten project from 2017 and got that to the top stage too!!

First things first, Swoon Sixteen. I finished putting on all the sashing and borders so the next step is to make the backing and get it basted. I have no idea what I’m going to use for backing but if I can figure it out today and get the basting done, I can take it to the sewing club meeting tomorrow and quilt it while I’m there! Fingers crossed!

Once I finished the Swoon top I wanted to work on some more piecing so I looked up the APQ UFO number for November (#10) and it correlated to an old project from 2017. This was a BOTM quilt along and I honestly can’t even remember if I made all the blocks but I’ve had them stashed for far too long! And I really love the fabrics and colors I used – an old Karen Lewis bundle – so I figured now was a good time to finish this up.

The difficulty was the blocks were all different sizes… Some were 12″, 10″, 9″, 8″ and 6″… and I did not have the motivation to find the original layout suggestion so I just started winging it!! 😂 I had enough of the background fabric left to sash the smaller blocks to make them 12″… and I ended up with this

Now let’s see how long it takes me to actually baste & quilt it 😜

I’m also staying caught up with the Sewcialites2 QAL from Fat Quarter Shop. They’ve been releasing the blocks on Thurs afternoons so unless I already have plans, I jump right on it. Here is my Block 4

I just have to share this adorable picture of my great niece. Her parents surprised her with a Disney Cruise coming up in December and gave her this sweet Cinderella outfit to wear on the cruise!!!!!!!!! 😍

We’re counting down to our first international travel in 6 years and our first time back in Aruba in 10 years!!! 🥳🏝 This is a picture of our favorite snorkeling spot, Baby Beach

We leave Nov 21 and will return Dec 1, we’re so excited but I’m also nervous hoping all our plans go smoothly ğŸ¤ž

That’s all for now… have a great rest of your weekend!
