    Default WiP Oct 25 - 31, 2019

    Happy Halloween everybody! Hope your crafting isn't "scary" this week LOL.

    I am buzzing right along on "It was the 80s", With the asymmetrical setting, there's a lot more complex cutting and piecing than a straight sashed quilt.

    I am struggling along walking foot quilting gentle curves on a king quilt. It will be done eventually.
    I started putting together some blocks and planning a quilt for 5 yo DGS since his new comforter makes him too hot. He has a loaner until I get this one made. Perhaps they will all be done by Christmas.
    I bought the notions to make some shaped Christmas trees for my lunch group yesterday, I need to get off the computer and busy in the sewing room.

    Making progress on Kaleidoscope Dreams. I had some problems getting the pinwheel corners blocks the right size. I was finally reduced to using scrap fabric to figure it out. A little fudging here and there and it looks close enough to me.

    Next I get to start on the more challenging paper pieced blocks.
    Stash Treasure Acquisitions Beyond Life Expectancy. My stash keeps me STABLE, oh yeah.... and dark chocolate.

    Everyone is busy making beautiful progress. Denise, love the progress on that quilt. I'm glad you didn't get a tornado last week. Although I associate these with Midwest US, we do seem to be getting more of them here as well.

    I made the blocks for the Seminole border, and have started piecing them together. I haven't had much time in the sewing room since coming back from weekend retreat. There is another one that has space at the end of November, and a tag on 4 day with a teacher, but this is too close to xmas planning. I'm really struggling with getting quilts finished. I seem to be pulled in all directions. I have so many tops done that need quilting, I will rent long arm in November for large ones.

    Enjoy life and do what makes you happy. Everything else will follow.

    Every day I try to do one thing that challenges my comfort zone.

    Still plugging away on the Barn quilt. And when I get too tired of it, I started making a few of the Christmas ornaments I've been leaving tuts here for everyone's use this holiday season. I wanted some project to use my "left over" Christmas fabrics". This is working.

    A couple of little ornaments, then back to the barn quilt. Still need to grab photos, tho. sorry.

    I got the 2 borders attached. I have decided on the shades of brown from Northcott for the 3rd border. I will cut it 6" wide. I Hope to get it done this week.
