My first and main goal was to finish my Cupid Shuffle quilt, which I did last week. I really do love this quilt and can't wait for colder weather. I wish I had been on my game when this line first came out, because I would have purchased enough to make a bed size quilt with it. But for now I will settle for the one I have and I have the fabric to do another that hopefully you see sometime soon. My favorite part of this quilt is the backing, I simply love it.
My second goal was to finish the test quilt I did for Cora's Quilts. I'm very happy to say it is quilted and bound. But sad to say I still can't show it to you because the pattern hasn't been release yet. It was the pattern that used 388 - 1" squares, yes that is right 388. I was really surprised at how fast I was able to sew them, I guess there are fewer stitches on little pieces. But just so ya'll know the project is real, here is a tiny snippet. It shows mainly the backing but if you look close you can see a couple of snowball corners.
My fourth goal was my fail for the month. The border fabric still sits, and nothing has been done on my Texas quilt. I plan on finishing it soon, but borders aren't my favorite thing to do, and so it has languished this month. On a happier note my sister did get hers finished and I'll show it to ya'll soon.
My last goal was to get another quilt cut either for me or for Sharla. I did get Box Trot cut out for Sharla, but not from the Wishes fabric. She decided she wanted to do a test one out of some fabric we had purchased for a different quilt that never got made. It is definitely bright and cheerful, which is Sharla's favorite type of quilt.
Now I did get other things done not on the list. I have started the memory quilts. After a lot of debate with myself, I have decided to do simple 4 patches that are sashed. When I get them all finished I will show them to you and explain my process. I will say for simple quilts these are some of the hardest things I've ever done. I also got more work done on organizing my sewing area. I almost have it the way I want it. I'm still tweaking a few things. But then I'm not sure I will ever be totally happy with it, I'm sure I will always find something else that I want/need/desire.
September was a slow month, but not a bad month. I have lots planned for October...ok not a lot, but hopefully I will get a little more done than this month. Today I am linking up with Shannon of Fiber of All Sorts and Melissa of Sew BitterSweet Designs.
