UFO Finish

Even though I am still working on Chic Kisses, I do have a finish for September. This cute, and easy Dr Seuss Baby quilt. Made out of a panel of blocks and some fat quarters, I finished it off using all the leftovers for the border. I think it turned out very cute, and will go to my new niece once it is quilted and bound.

Check out more finishes at Patchwork Times.

Now it is on to October, with two projects to finish!

Design Wall Monday

Chic Kisses remains on the Design Wall this week. Still sewing all those curves. I am making mine 9 blocks instead of the 16 that are in the pattern. Each block finishes at 24 inches.

Chic Kisses 16 block.

Next up will be my Feathered Star.This is my October UFO. Only have a couple of more blocks to make, everything is already cut.

I have a busy month ahead of me!

Design Wall

This week on my design wall are a baby quilt that just need the borders finished up. This quilt was made from a fat quarter pack of girly Dr Seuss fabrics that I bought awhile back. Just have to finish up the pieced border from all the scraps that are left. This will be for a new niece that was born about a week ago.

Also on my design wall is Chic Kisses. Wedges are done and will sew on melons and outside circles next. Had to find more of the dark grey for the corner squares, and was lucky enough to find on line at Quilting Cupboard.

Chic Kisses
This is my September UFO and not sure if it will be complete by Saturday, but I am going to try.

The San Diego Quilt Show opened today, so if you have a chance head on over. It runs through Saturday. I will be in Sunshine Quilt Guild Booth on Saturday, sewing away with other members on Project Linus Quilts and hoping to win some $$$ for the guild. If you are there stop by.
