October already?




I can't believe it's already October! What happened to September? I just thought I'd update my projects. Time is going by so fast!

As you can see, the table runner is coming along fine. I have 3 more ornaments to make but they all still need to be appliqued. I'm supposed to add bows to each ornament to show that they are hanging. I may just tie a bow to each ornament and made it 3-dimensional. I haven't fully decided. There are directions to glue, couch or sew ribbon with a zigzag stitch. I'm not sure I like any of those methods. I guess I'll make the decision as I get closer to that step.

 
Here is my latest piecing project. This is a pattern but Cluck Cluck Sew.  It's called Basket Case. I think of it as interlocking ribbons. I'm using Honey Honey by Kate Spain. My daughter saw this pattern and just loved it so I had to make it for her! Isn't that what we quilting moms do?? It's such fun to make. I have to make a total of 30 blocks so I have a ways to go. I'm in no rush and neither is my daughter! (Good thing!)

I'm getting very close to reaching the borders on my machine quilting project. It's taking forever but I do like how it's coming out. Just so slow! I will post pictures when I'm done a little more.

That's it for now! Happy October!!
