Little bits

Finished some parts of things the past few days.

Mystery quilt along:
Finished month 8: Salt Water Taffy border
So cute! I used the last of my two fat quarters of the cute butterfly/dandelion on pale purple (fabric #2 in the fabric palette) to alternate with the background solid.

Finished Month 9: Ferris Wheel block

Tonight, I finished up the backing on the mini-quilt #ModaLove made with a Kate a Spain Solstice mini-charm pack.

These rectangles are what's left after cutting all the charms for the Kate Spain Christmas charm swap. There's mostly Solstice, and the white/red snowflake print is from Jingle, this year's Christmas collection. Then I filled in with spacers of solid red from Legacy Studios. I really really adore Solstice and Jingle prints.

Now I just need to decide if I'm making a mini-quilt for the wall, or a Christmas pillow. It is roughly 20" square.

How do you vote: quilt or pillow?

Peteetneet Quilt Show 2015


This morning I went to work. On my way home, I met my best friend at the Peteetneet Quilt Show (and had lunch after!).

I was so amazed and pleased to see that my Hope Star received a Third Place ribbon in the Wall Quilt category !

Here's some of my favorites:

This next one took Best in Show!

Here's a cool autumn sampler:

Here's a civil war swap quilt:

I might join a swap like this soon.

ALYOF-September goal

I honestly have no clue what to set my goal for. I feel like I've got such a mountain of projects that I'll never get through it all.

I haven't even blogged or posted on Facebook, because I've been busy but not progressing much on projects.

However, I still want to finish a project for the Peteetneet Quilt Show this month. I think my best bet for that is still the Swoon.

I better go find out when the quilt show takes entries!

I really want to participate in the Sew Fresh Quilt-Along for Dog Gone Cute! It just started this week. But, we all know how fast I am....the Elephant Parade top and backing are finished, and it still needs layering and quilting!
