End of September


'It's the end of september
And with every turning tree
It gets harder to remember
Why the easy days of summer
Were just wasted of me
Kind of wasted on me’

- Donna Regina - ‘End Of September’ (partial lyrics)



This is the last week of September - my last post of the month will be dedicated to 100 Quilts For Kids. To share - some spool blocks received from the Australian 6" block swap.


I am still working on some quilt tops donated for Flood Victims. See information here. This scrappy half-log is my own and in the process of being quilted. I am using a flannel backing - cold weather is on it's way. Information on Schoharie can be found here, also.


I have been playing with some secret projects for some Ghastly fun at the end of October. And another big event in October - my 1st yr. blog-a-versary.

REMINDERS

CLOSING THOUGHT


"For summer there, bear in mind, is a loitering gossip, that only begins to talk of leaving when September rises to go."

  3. Love the spool blocks and the colours used.
    I guess I'll have to wait until the end of October to see the ghastly thing you're working on! :)

  13. I really like your half log cabin. It looks like a great way to use up scraps and get a quilt that is great to cuddle under when the weather turns chilly.

  14. I finally feel like sewing - Fall is here - horrah!! for cooler weather. I honestly thought I would surely melt away this summer. Than didn't happen. Get ready, set, sew - the Ghastlies are coming, The Glastlies are coming. Judy C

  17. You have received some wonderful blocks in the swap. Your quilt top is wonderful. Backing it with flannel will add just that little bit of extra warmth when it is needed. Can't wait to see what you are doing for your October project :)
    Thanks for letting us know where the traveling stash has traveled to.
