Work in Progress

I have been neglecting my blog this month, I apologize.  September gets busy even for those of us without kids it seems!  I have started another seminary class, Christian Apologetics, which is great!  Work has been busier then ever, with a big frame show and sale at the beginning of the month, and then a computer hardware and software update that is still on going.  I have been in my sewing room though, rest assured!  I am a bit behind on taking photo’s but I thought for today I would share some of my iPhone pics to catch you up!

First off, I am finished my Hope Valley Lattice quilt!  I keep meaning to take pictures but it hasn’t happened yet, so here’s a tiny sneak peak!

I also finished this quilt top last week.  I call it Merry Moosemas, and it is a surprise pre-Christmas gift for someone who I know will appreciate it!  If you’re wondering about the name, it’s because the fabric features Christmas moose riding mopeds! It’s super cute!  I still have to quilt it of course, and I hope to finish that by the end of October.

I have finally got all my fabric for a new Christmas quilt for myself as well.  I decided to make Peppermint Frenzy with Blitzen by Basic Grey.  I am making a king sized one for my bed and it will be backed with lovely snow coloured minky for extra snuggliness!

At this point I have finished cutting all the squares for this and I need to start sewing the HST’s.  I can’t decide if I should start doing this first or get Merry Moosemas quilted first… tough decisions, I know!

Last weekend I was asked to participate in a quilting retreat as a special guest demonstrator!  It was a lot of fun!  I demonstrated the cathedral window pincushion and I brought several of my favourite quilts for show and tell.  

My mom has also been busy and she finished her version of Box of Chocolates!  Here it is!

Here are our two quilts next to each other… look how much smaller mine is after a couple of washings! (mine is the one with the pink strip in the backing)

Mom also finished this cool modern wonky log cabin quilt.  I know that she had fun doing this one because she loves to make things wonky, and the improvisational blocks were something new for her!

Not only that, but check out her backing!  I love that she added a couple of the blocks into the pieced back.  Way to go mom!

Well there you have it.  All of September in one post!
