Springtime Quilt

I thought I would add this finished quilt to the Blogger's Quilt Festival this year. I am calling this my Springtime quilt because the colors reminded me of Spring flowers, which I love. I enjoyed sewing it and gave it to my Mom. 

My sweet cat, Lucky, thought it was pretty comfy,too.

This is a better close up of the piecing. I pieced the label and used this cute yellow fabric for the backing. It's hard to see, but it had cute birds and flowers on it. I quilted it on my Brother machine, 1/4 inch on either side of the blocks.

I think my Mom likes it and uses it on her couch. Linking this completed quilt up to 2017 Fall Blogger's Quilt Festival

Quilt Along Cuts

I'm going to be participating in the Round About quilt along at Happy Quilting. I decided to make a Christmas quilt since I already had the fat quarters required. I purchased the white background and backing. These are my cut pieces. I will be trying to sew the 3X4 Lap size.

It's not too late to join the quilt along.

Set Machine up to start quilting...

My OMG at Elm Street Quilts for September is to get at least 1/2 of this quilt quilted.

I don't know if I will get it completely quilted in September because, well, life happens.

I need to have the whole thing finished by the end of October so that gives me 2 months to have it fully quilted and bound. That's more manageable for me since I do want to echo quilt around each of those boxes and dashes. I didn't start the quilting yet, but I am envisioning some maneuvering through my sewing machine. I'm getting on it after Labor Day for sure!

Pumpkin Patch Placemats Tops

Finished my OMG for August at Elm Street Quilts OMG. My original post was here: August OMG Goal.  I haven't had a whole lot of time this month, so I am glad that I did get these tops done.

The 3 at the bottom left are for a table runner. There was another border on the pattern, but I don't know if I am sewing it the way that it is.  At first when I sewed these, I didn't know if they even looked like pumpkins, but I guess they do. I actually do need some placemats so, hopefully, I can get these quilted and bound for Thanksgiving!
