Sewing for September/October

Just know that I am always sewing....something.  A sewing project update blog post is overdue but my how I lost track of the time from August to October.

Here is what I have been making during September and through this part of October. I have decided to be in a craft show in November and visit the relatives at the same time.  I have been making pouches. Hope I sell them all because where I live Texas A & M reigns supreme!  Gig Em Aggies and Whoop!

This is my Miss Kate charm pack and fabric turned into quilt.  Just needs binding.  Love it.

I stopped all sewing projects one weekend to make this quilt super cute quilt.  Sometimes you need a break to create. I used two charm packs of Timberland Critters from AdornIt.  Pattern inspiration is School Days Charm Quilt by Cindy Sharp on the Moda Bake Shop     

I love the little foxes and the twirling orange pinwheels remind me of fall breeze and falling leaves.  Such a cute quilt.  

And this is the back.  More foxes.  So cute.  Waiting to be bound and finished.

This is my Spooky Snowball quilt.  I haven't shown you my two Flowering Snowball quilts. I made them last April.  I loved them and they went together so fast.  I hand quilted them both.  I just need to bind this one.

And I have been working on my Spring Fever in Zella's Garden in between all of the other activities of the month.

You are now caught up with my projects.  I have another quilt I want to start.  I have begun to collect fabrics for this beauty.  The magazine is on the floor by my bed and it speaks to me every night as I drift off to sleep.
Always planning the next quilt.

Thanks for stopping by.

Spring Fever QAL. Bats or Butterflies

What are those things? Bats?  That's what my son asked during last week's family time show and tell  They are supposed to be butterflies.  Jen Kingwell's look like butterflies. Hummmmm! My mind gears are twirling at the mention of bats!  Another quilt to make?...

Really I was thinking they looked more like turkeys but I didn't tell him that!  Gobble Gobble Gobble!
All the same.......

I Love It! Love it!  Love It!  I almost have the four half rectangle appliqué sections done.  I couldn't be happier with how it is coming together.

It is not as big as the original. I am still debating on the scallop edging.  I believe it is essential to the quilt. I guess I am trying to simplify the process.   This quilt has a story.  Every quilt has a story.  Read about it here and here.

Check out all the other quilters who are doing the JenKingwell QAL over at Lining Up My Stitches.  And check out all the projects over at Freshly Pieced this week.

Thanks for stopping by.  Happy Wednesday and Happy Fall to one and all!
