My Stitching for September 2017

I had a few projects on my to-do list for this month and I’m pleased to share with you that I did get quite a bit done.  In addition to these projects, I worked several days at the Fabric Cafe Booth at the Pennsylvania Quilt Extravaganza.  Not quilting, but a great deal of “Fabric Fondling” and meeting a lot of quilters!

Here is a summary of the projects on my September To Do List..

  • UFO Project #7Finished! One project on my To-Do List for September was to work on Project #7 – A quilt for a family member.  As this is a surprise, I cannot say anything more.  But my goal is to complete the top (flimsy) and hopefully even piece the backing & hand it off to be quilted. Flimsy & backing completed and sent to the Long-Arm Quilter. Plus a standard Pillowcase & Travel Pillowcase were made and the Binding prepared.

Some matching pillowcases.


  • September One Monthly Goal Finished! Another item is the OMG.  This goal is to complete the flimsy and maybe the backing.  I may quilt this myself – but that’s yet to be determined. Flimsy & backing completed and sent to the Long-Arm Quilter. Standard & Travel Size pillowcases made.

This is such a fun Mystery Quilt Challenge, and it supports a wonderful cause!  I’m enjoying this so much, I decided I will make 2 quilts.  Here’s my 2nd set of blocks.

  • Scrappy Batik Top Worked on, but not Finished I have to finish sewing the rows together on a Scrappy Batik Top, so we’ll add this to my Octoberr To-Do List.

I was busy this month and am pleased with what I got accomplished. Tomorrow I’ll share a list for October..
