On the eve of October 1st, I did complete my September mini (yeah, Wendy Reed--constantquilter-- for keeping me honest!)
This was a Primitive Gatherings pattern for an adorable pin cushion. I used leftover fabrics from my Moda Blockheads, which is DONE, except for the borders. I'm going to put an inner gold border, which I've got cut out. I have a red/white/blue stripe I might use for the outer border, if I have enough.
As you can see, I opted to leave out the sashings between any blocks. I also added initials and the year in the appliqué basket block, which I'd seen in someone else's quilt. It's a massive quilt and I'm very happy that it's done.
I also rearranged a couple of rows to be sure certain fabrics didn't touch; in so doing, I wound up making my flag upside down (I'll fix that)!
We have been without power for two days now. VERY annoying, if for no other reason that I can't use my machine!! UGH. I don't know when we will get ours restored, although it seems that everyone has gotten theirs back!
I also finished a top I've been working on for a while. It's using one of Bonnie Hunter's blocks and I had fun fussy cutting the fabrics. This quilt is going to be for another cancer patient I know about from the memory care place my mom is living in now. It's going to the long arm quilter today!
I think it's a fun quilt.
A very wise friend recently posted a charming fence sign which I really like.
I have recently been cut off from a couple of quilting friends I've known for decades and it's pretty painful. But I try to remind myself that I can't control what others may decide to do.
