WOW – October 6th 2015

Hard to believe it’s already October this summer went by so fast without even one blog post.  My oldest son was married on July 11 and everything went wonderful.  We also started a major remodeled of our home six weeks ago.  We have been without a kitchen for over three weeks and it should be at least three more before we have appliances and water and another four weeks until everything is finished.  We are trying to not go crazy living in a mess and cooking only items that can be microwaved.  This week we are staying with my parents because the hard wood floors and being finished. 

I have been doing quite a bit of sewing this last month my sewing room is one of the few rooms not being affected by this remodel. 

I finally finished my Quick Curve Ruler quilt that I made two years ago but never quilted.  It always feel good to finish a UFO.  I like the way it turned out and my daughter has claimed it for her own.

Next I made a very simple baby quilt for one of my son’s friends that just had a baby.  This was very fast made from a charm pack. 

My niece is expecting a little boy in January and I wanted to make something more modern so is decided to make this cute fox pattern.  I made a sample big block with scrap flannel that I had left over from a big bed quilt I made for my son. I will be giving this one to the children’s shelter that my guild donates to. 

This is the finished quilt for my niece I really love the way it turned out and the quilting is very soft and supple. The color combo’s really work.

Now I have to start designing a new baby quilt for dear friends of my husband and I they are having a little girl in March.  I want to do something really special for them so as soon as I can go back home I will start working on a design for this. 

Hope everyone has a wonderful week.
