I normally take the entire week of my birthday off to just relax at home and sew my little heart out. It didn’t quite work out that way this year but I was able to squeeze in a few days on the end of that week and got some sewing time in!
Quiet Play Mini Quilt Swap:
I finished up the mini quilt of the Geometric Mermaid. I made a little adjustment and I love it so much better.I had the perfect clamshell fabric to use on the back that really pulled it all together.
I stayed on the geometric theme and made two of the three panels that I want to use to make a Christmas wall hanging. First up was the Geometric Christmas Tree. I used fabrics from the JOL line for the background pieces and some of the interior.The second was the Geometric Reindeer and I did that one in shades of red. Mirror Dots for the win as the antlers and hooves. 🙂
I’m also going to do the Geometric Sleigh in shades of silver and gold with a hint of red. It should look really cool. I can’t wait to finish this up and get it all together.
Sugar Block Club:
I got all caught up on my Sugar Block Club blocks. I was a few months behind and I was glad to have the time to devote to them. I just love this top one! This palette is just so soothing.
I finished the top of the Stacked Squares quilt and I think my dad will love it!I created the backing out of some left over golf fabric that I had on hand. My dad lives on a golf course and I tend to make him golf themed items. That has been a Dad gifting theme my whole life. This quilt will only have a little bit of that theme on the back.
Still To Do:
Baste many, many quilts – Stacked Squares, Wonky Cross, Triple Barnstar
Mini Quilts – 3 in progress. One for my guild and the Christmas one for me and one my mom just added to my plate that she needs in early October for Halloween decorating
There is a lot to do……..Happy Sewing!
