The trip that I had made for the reunion (a 3 and a half hour drive there and a another 3 and a half hour drive back the next day) was to short for me to bring a big project. So, I had decided to bring along the "Christmas Wish BOM" from Gail Pan.
I had finished with one of the blocks and it turned out beautifully. And I was able to start on another block. I can't wait until my son's basketball season starts as this was what I was going to work on while we are at practices.
I am still planning to enter my quilt into the upcoming quilt show, which is the Festival of Quilts at the Grouseland (William Henry Harrison's presidential home and national Historical landmark) in Vincennes, Indiana, on October 16 and 17. I still have a a little more to do before it is finished and I am happy that I had changed my mind on all that elaborate quilting.
The Annie Smith Simplearts on-line quilt class "Quiltmaking 101" is already in it's second lesson and I still haven't picked out my fabric. And, oh my gosh!! It's already the first of October and I have to start sketching the designs for the Halloween costumes. Busy, busy, busy!!
Til next time,
