WIP :: 9/25/2013

Can't remember the last time I joined in for a Work In Progress Wednesday!  Here's a quick update for you dear readers. :)

in progress
Swoon - finally managed to create my label and finish piecing the backing for this quilt.  Also cut batting so it'll be ready to baste when I decide how to quilt it.

Pinwheels - used some yardage from my stash for backing and have basted this quilt!  I've got the start of a plan for quilting and am ready to go.
This is also my September project for ALYOF and I'll link it up over at Fiber of All Sorts.

See Above!  Also:
Challenge Quilt - top is finished, batting is cut and backing fabric has been ordered!

charity quilts - I had an urge for some piecing so I sewed up two quiltlet tops the other week.  Sadly no photos, but will be looking to get these basted soon as well.

Linking up over at Freshly Pieced and checking out all the progress!

see you in September

A Lovely Year of FinishesWhy is it that the last few months of the year always zip by?  Labor day weekend was a lot of fun and it was definitely relaxing as it's back to the busy busy work days.  The weather has been gorgeous here so I'm hoping to get more walks in during the evenings.

I decided that my September project for ALYOF will be to get the backing together and baste the pinwheel quilt.

I know I won't have time to get it all quilted since I'll be busy with Barbeque on the River at the end of the month.  Linking up over at Fiber of All Sorts and if you're looking for some motivation/inspiration to get behind the sewing machine pick a project and jump on in!
