September Friday Night Sew-In and Fall is Officially Here!
I had a Friday afternoon and night sew-in! Since last month, I have quilted my Courthouse Steps lap quilt. Yesterday afternoon I started sewing the binding down and I have it just about half way finished.
Friday evening I started quilting my free motion quilt along quilt. I wanted to get caught-up with the group so much that I got carried away. I was only to quilt two of the white stripes and I quilted four. Oh well, I did put a border on this quilt so I have enough room to do everything that Christina has in store for us. When I was quilting the two white strips, I used a wavy line and then went back in the same direction making a wavy ribbon. It was so fun that I kept on going!!! With all the different colors in this fabric I couldn't make up my mind what color to use so I'm using five different colors that are variegated. It's going to be something different.
I'm glad that I joined the Free Motion Quilt Along. It's really helping me to think outside the box in quilting. I quilted a flower design and what looks like a tale of a kite. I think that design suggestions are just great and are something different!!!
When my husband is combining beans and making a lot of dust, fall is official.
I'm hoping for a safe harvest this season!
