September Catch Up

     I've been doing quite a bit of sewing lately but it's been hard to find the time to write about it.  Here's a little catch up on some of what I've been doing.

    Eileen of Eileen in Stitches put out the call for blocks for a quilt she is making for her grandfather. She asked for blue and neutral blocks with stars as a theme and various possible sizes.  I made this eight pointed star block that finishes at 12 1/2".  I'll be putting it in the post tomorrow.  I hope it works well with the other blocks in your quilt Eileen.



     I've also been participating in the Meadow Mist Designs Midnight Mystery Quilt Along.  This month we are making square in a square blocks.  



     There are a couple of finished but untrimmed ones in the photo below along with last months flying geese blocks.



     At this point I'm thinking that this quilt is going to look like a big wedding cake, with white and pink icing.  We'll see how it progresses.  I'm glad that Cheryl is taking this quilt along slowly.  I'm not happy as a production quilter so I like to be able to work slowly on this around the other projects I am  working on.
     I'll be linking up late to Let's Bee Social when I return from my business meetings.  Life should settle down a little after that and I hope to share more sewing adventures moving in to the fall.

  1. I have to say I'm going to be excited to see how your version of the mystery quilt turns out. I'm really digging that white on white fabric, the turquoise and pinks. And I love that you are sending Eileen a block for her quilt. I'm hoping I can get one finished for her this weekend. I love how our quilting community come together to supports each other.

  2. I really love how your 8 pointed star turned out. Great fabrics! Your square in square blocks are really pretty. Is the one floral print from the Skopelos line of prints? I have the entire line of fat quarters waiting for just the right project. lol

  3. What a lovely block to send to Eileen. I also really like how your blocks for the Midnight Mystery quilt are coming along. A big cake with white and pink icing sounds yummy! Maybe I need to go find some breakfast. :)

  5. Oh your star block turned out so pretty. I love, love the fabrics for your Midnight Mystery. I see you have an directional fabric also - and it's looking very good. Maybe mine will too. I'm glad Cheryl is taking it slow too - gives me time to catch up.
