Time to Play
I finished up the bindings on those three big quilts. This is the Lozenges Bonnie Hunter finish challenge. I'm sure this one will be staying with me as my furkids really love it and it was a great travel companion.
This one I LOVE and used up the last of my sons' flannel shirts. I've set this aside for future donation. I like working with de-boned shirts and will have to keep watching the local thrift shop now that my supply is gone.
The third quilt I can't show because it was a test pattern - the one that ate my finger - but it is bigger than these two. It will be saved for an up coming Spring wedding gift.
Now it's time to play. I dug thru my FQ totes and have several of Valerie Wells little wallets ready to assemble. These make great presents with gift cards tucked inside - yes, that season is upon us.
My furkids found the cuddle blanket on the couch a perfect spot for the day's nap (cold and rainy day) so I had use of the table to dump my 1.5" squares. I wanted to get started on my 'Let's Book It' project and could also pull/sort some of these for the Tucker sew along.
I'm changing the 'Let's Book It' pattern up a little, but I managed to get those center rails paper pieced. I have some skinny strips of white left over fom an old project ready for the next step and then I will have to pull my string tote for finishing the corners.
And still playing with those tinies - working tiny is fun for me, sorry. This is a project that has been a travel piece - a scrappy Irish Chain. I have rows, twosies, parts in a jumble so I want to at least get them into the two blocks - maybe even some more rows.
There are several Hops in progress (see side bar) and I just caught the Fall Blogger's Quilt Festival over at Amy's. October 23-29 is link up and vote for viewer's choice. So get those quilts linked up people. It's our way of getting to participate in Quilt Market (which most of us can't attend).
Find time to play today,
