 Along with finishing up all the half square triangles and sewing them into blocks, I will also be working on, hopefully getting the tote bag together. The front and back panels are appliqued and embellished and ready to sew with side, then lining and finally sew on handles.

Microwave bowls

Also in the finishing stages are more microwave bowls, these are for Rita. Hope to get them in the mail tomorrow,

Halloween Hoopla

Lastly, I hope to get some of Halloween Hoopla cut out and started on this week. Fall is in the air and I am itching to work on a couple of fall projects. 

Enjoy the week and hope you have something fun you are working on.

Design Wall Monday

 




September is flying by! This week I will be working on catching up with the " O say can you see" quilt along with Primitive Gatherings.  These are the last of the first block to be sewn together. Next up are all the blue half square triangles.

These are some of the over 1000 that I will need to make. I will be cutting them with the Accquilt, which will make the job much easier. It is still a lot of sewing!

Also in the works will be a halloween quilt, from American Patchwork and quilting magazine October 2021 issue. 
Halloween Hoopla

I will be making mine a bit smaller, the one above finishes at 98x98. Hope to get some of the pieces cut out this week, again using my Accquilt Cutter. It really helps cut down the cutting time and saves my wrist!  Busy week for me, how about you? Enjoy!
