Thankfully I had done a lot of my monthly projects early in the month - the unexpected health scare of my Mom has put a 'slow-down to hold' on my sewing for the later part of the month and probably for the next few month.
Things that have been shown on previous posts:
FMQ Challenge, 12" Mini Club , X-mas QAL (table toppers, candle mats, gift bags), Doll Quilt Swap, Santa Sack swap - finale, and Blocks for Sandy.
I needed to get the blocks off the floor so I can clean and prepare for seasonal decorating. This will be my November entry into the Let Me See Your Jelly Roll with Megan. I have one JR left for December, but not sure I will get to it.
I had this Ricky Tim's Convergence piece as a flimsie for several months - so used my minimal sewing time to geometric quilt with red, dark green, and yellow threads - and finish off with a dark green binding. I call it 'Broken Muse'.
And I have always enjoyed Beth's annual 'Neighborhood' block quilt project. You send one house block for the lotto and one (or more) for a charity quilt that Beth will do up for donation. This is one of the house blocks I sent earlier this month.
This is the piece that I sent earlier this month to my Once Upon A Season Swap partner Pauline - she was the one who sent me those lovely daisy strips I used in a floral mini. I got a chance to repay her with her own flower mini . This is just 12", just so you can tell how tiny those flowers are - I had to sew those little buttons in the flower centers with a beading needle, but I love them.(borrowed photo from Pauline as I forgot to photo this one before mailing)
And I have been having such fun with Konda's Mini Quilt Along. I did change the pattern from tiny pieced centers to tiny yo-yo's - yeah, I hate yo-yo's, but I do make them and I like the look in this piece. And pearlized beads added to their centers.
Thank you Barbara for organizing and hosting the NewFO project and I will be linking up. Please hop over and check out other's new monthly starts/finishes.
One kind word can warm three winter months.
