September mini--delayed

I am hoping that the Monthly Mini Maven (Wendy Reed!) will still accept my submission for my September mini.  I picked it up from the quilter in September...does that count??  Plus I think I should get a ribbon because this was a UFO from a few years ago which I recently finished up at the cabin.  Just needs the binding.

and I decided I didn't want to add to the stash with the leftover fabric I accumulated in making this darling so I took all the leftover fabrics, cut them into strips and made a jelly-roll quilt, which I also got from the quilter.  Funny that the left-over quilt is much larger than the original quilt! vbg  The good news is that I don't have any more fabric left from this project!  And it'll make a great donation quilt.  I think I'll let Claire (the donation queen) direct me on that.

When I last posted, I had a group of friends at the cabin and we went hiking every day.  I got no sewing done, especially because I flew back with them and missed my drive time for hand sewing. ;-(
I showed you many of my scenic views.  We had a wonderful time and I loved sharing the cabin and Central Oregon with them.

Then, right after I returned from the cabin, my dh and I took a little (that's not exactly true...) excursion.  If you can identify this location, you'll win a FQ!
I'll post more pictures from this trip after the destination has been identified.  It was so interesting.

One small hint:  my hair, which is extremely curly, was beyond curly and frizzy.


  1. The Marina Bay hotel, in Singapore!

  2. The Marina Bay Sands Hotel. Oh! Lucky you! Can't wait to see more pictures.
    Funny that the Plus Quilt, I find it is very pink and rose, yet in the jelly roll quilt, I see more of the beige and browns. Did you used all the best fabric for the Plus Quilt? lol. They both look great. ;^)

  3. Chantal WON! I forgot the "sands", LOL! You go, girl!!

  4. Love your September mini!! I updated the post to add yours. I was going to guess Hawaii, but looks like Singapore wins. Wherever it was I'm guessing you had fun! Can't wait to see more pictures.

  5. I have absolutely no idea on my own of where those buildings are but oh how interesting looking. I was going to guess Hawaii but the consensus is Singapore.

  6. Lovely mini and jelly roll quilt. Nice work!
    That is one interesting hotel!

  7. I didn't know the name of this hotel, but it was featured in the movie, "Crazy Rich Asians." Definitely go see the movie; it's hysterical.

  8. Love your newest mini. It's a design that needed to be completely laid out before you could sew. Fabulous fabrics. Also included in your jelly roll quilt. Great job and you can shout "ALL GONE!"

  9. No clue where this is at but WOW!! What an incredible building!! I am always amazed at these architectural wonders and the MINDS that can conceive their design and then implement it! WOW!! Hope you had fun and looking forward to seeing more pictures ;-) Linda
