Get a Clue!

They're finished! Hooray!  
I made my September goal which was to bind both of my Nancy Drew themed quilts.  As previously stated, these are twin quilts, Parts I & II, and I quilted them both the same.  

I've used two different fabrics for binding - Sketch in yellow and the yellow pathway print from Central Park by Kate Spain.  Yellow was the obvious choice because, of course, Nancy Drew books had yellow covers!

Linking up with Fiber of All Sorts and getting ready to snuggle with a good book and my newest quilt.  I'm hoping to get some better full quilt shots this weekend too!

WIP :: 9/10/214

Hello again WIP Wednesday friends!  There's been a lot of things going on in my sewing room lately and here's a peek at what it entails.

Shield: Made this Captain America shield for TJ as a going away gift.  Used this fun superhero print on the back - it was a big hit!  Intended for a table topper but will work however he wants to use it.

in progress
Nancy Drew: quilted these two, binding made for both and am halfway through attaching the binding.

B! block: Had fun making this wall block for my room from the Moda alphabet letter patterns.  Just need to quilt, bind and hang it up.

up next
Group Challenge: Sunrise table runner from A Quilters Mixology-fabric pulled & templates ready to cut

Pillow (perhaps) for E

Happy September

Happy Labor Day!  It's been a great weekend full of Doctor Who, friends, biking, rain storm, hiking and relaxing.  I fit in some quilting too and managed to quilt my Nancy Drew quilt.  Officially titled 'The Secret of the Faraway Friends Part I and Part II'.

My September project is to put the binding on these quilts.  Leaning towards binding it with yellow - just like the books! :)

 Linking up at Fiber of All Sorts for the start of the month.
