Have you been watching the Harvest Moon - or Super Moon? This moon is the closest to the earth and happens once every 20 yrs. My SIL and I share the love of the night sky. We watch for meteor showers, try to point out the constellations, look for any planets that appear in our path, lunar eclipse, and now this lovely moon.
I finished the Noah's Ark for Judy's UFO Challenge. This is larger than any other youth quilt I've done and I used a medium loft batt and flannel backing. So it is rather heavy - a good winter quilt. I will put it in the charity tote for when they are looking for warm quilts at Christmas for families in need.
And the Cherry picnic quilt is done. This had me in the picnic mood - even made burgers and potato salad for dinner. And treated myself with some potato chips, which I seldom have in the house.
I played on National Quilters Day with the Jelly Roll Race project. I used a Moda - Fruitcake roll. I have batt and backing waiting their turn. This will make for a nice gift. Yes, I am getting my Christmas done along the way.
I put together some blocks for Beth (LoveLaughQuilt) who is asking for ONE block to help in the Quilts for Japan. Yes, I noticed I had a block wrong, that is fixed and they will be mailed out Monday morning.
I have Melissa's quilt along flimsy I could finish next. The BlockaPalooza will be showing setting finishing, but I will save that for April. The marble quilt and stretched star quilt are on April's list. Oh, I have those red string blocks I can play with. I have a week of fun sewing play time - I hope you allow yourself to just have some FUN.
