Hey everyone! I’ve got lots of work in progress for the month of October. I’m sure I’m not the only one!
I’ve been playing with some maple leaf blocks. I made four of them (9″ square) and these will become a pillow for the living room couch:
I’ve added some fall solids to my stash from American Made. I have been playing with these lovelies and I think I see a table runner in my future:
I’m trying to catch up on my TQS BOM from last month. I have the letters S, Y and Z finished.
I LOVE that letter S! Now I’m ready to finish up the borders. I already have most of them prepped since I had to have examples ready for the instructional videos.
I participated in a small friendship bag swap at my Modern Quilt Guild. I made this Lined Drawstring Bag from the free tutorial by Jeni Baker at In Color Order.
Seriously easy and seriously cute! I added the outer pockets using the tutorial from Terri Harlan at Sew Fantastic. For the drawstrings I used some of my Moda Twill tape which I’ve been saving for a special project. It fit perfectly in size and color scheme.
And let’s not forget the dark chocolate with hazelnuts for the inside!
I’ve got to make more of these just to hide my chocolate stash! And I finished it off with a cute little gift tag:
Well, I don’t get to say this next sentence very often: I’m going to be out of the country for 12 days! Yes, I’m going to Spain and Portugal with Mr. Crafty Quilter and we leave in two days. Our youngest daughter is spending a semester in Cordoba, Spain, so we will catch up with her and do some sight seeing. I’ll be excited when we actually get to Cordoba. I’m not a great “flyer” and getting through airports, customs, car rentals, etc. is a big stress factor for me.
Anyways, I have one scheduled blog post for next week. So if things get quiet around here, it’s because I’ll be disconnected for a while. I look forward to catching up with you at the end of this month!
