September Country Charmer Update


It is time again to update our individual progress.  This is a no pressure, at your own speed, have fun with it quilt along.  We are using  Lynn's wonderful pattern - you can find her progress on TWO quilts over at Sew'n Wild Oaks.


My goal for August was to get my sashing and corner stones made after waiting for those fabrics to arrive.  They have been patiently waiting their turn to be played with.


I laid a few blocks out with them to get a look.  This is to be a bit of a marriage of 'female/male' quilt love.  Those guys like their dark colors where us ladies want those brights - so we compromise.  My goal this month is to get this to a flimsie state in a week's time so I can send it out for quilting and have it back in time to bind and have ready for the parade. 

I will be linking up over at the lovely Leslies's The Cuddle Quilter - please stop on over and see everyone's progress.

Sewingly Yours,
Sharon
