September block

I really, really like how this one turned out. Course, I got REALLY good at ripping seams because I kept sewing the wrong sides. :) I have October, so hopefully I'll get my fabric out this weekend.

Nine-Patch Swap

If any of your aren't too scared off of quilting bees, I am doing a nine-patch swap.

To make sure people get what back what they put in (which has been a bit of a problem in this bee), no one will get any blocks til they have submitted their own.

So, check it out, and let me know if you are interested.

I really hope that some of yall want to join in!

It's done! Luckily the quilt store still had the black and white fabric. I also added a 3 inch border to center the squares a bit. Thanks to everyone who sent back squares. I did have to make several to finish it.

Hopefully yall can use this as motivation to either finish blocks that you haven't done or work on your own finished quilt. If you haven't finished blocks for other people, please do. You said you would when you signed up for the bee. It really doesn't take that long. If not, mail them to me (I'd be glad to do some more blocks) or back to their owner.

My motivation continued!

I got my squares together and added a few of my own to get this far before I ran out of the black fabric. I hope I can find more of it!

Has anyone else gotten anything put together with their blocks?

September Block

I got my fabric today. I already had my sewing stuff out so I got my block put together.

Samantha put in her note that the fabric reminded her of her parents' kitchen growing up. Me too! This definitely would have fit in my parents' kitchen circa 1977.
