September Review

I can hardly believe that September is already over! I told you when I posted at the beginning of the month that it was going to be a good one and it was. In addition to a major addition to my basement studio, I got several projects finished that I really wanted to have done and we went on a great family camping trip at my sister in law's farm. 

On the sewing front, the biggest news of the month was the upgrade of my midarm from an HQ16 to an HQ Avante. I quilted the last quilt on my old machine and three projects on the new one this month -- here's the total list of quilting and sewing finishes from my 15 hours of sewing time in September. 

  • Baby blanket

  • Comfort quilt pillowcase (and gifted the comfort quilt)
  • Quilted, bound, and attached a hanging sleeve to Lois' bowties
  • Quilted and finished my Market bags, a UFO from last year

  • Loaded and quilted a rail fence quilt for Kay
  • Loaded and quilted my mom's Convergence quilt
On deck and most important for October is getting my projects ready for the quilt show - I have two quilts that need hanging sleeves, one that needs to be finished (quilting is partially done), and labels for all of them. I am planning to quilt another one or two projects this month and have a sewing day Monday, so hope to get some piecing done on a new purse and maybe a new project too. Hope September was good for you too!
