The top row is not sewed together! But i have them almost finished.
May do that this afternoon.
I made one more sashing last night.
I spent a little while yesterday working on 2 1/2 inch squares for Missy's quilt to.

Got two sides on this block last Friday.
Hope to have five and maybe six large quilts finished by Christmas for Christmas presents.
I have slowed down for some reason!
Couldn't be old age!

I squared up another block and worked on some more sashing.
I have a good sized freezer bag full but it will take much more than that to do this!
Making this with Dawn HERE . She wanted people to make this with her.
And Missy loved it so i will make it for hopefully her Christmas present.
She wants pillow shams to go with it and i think i will start making them for each quilt.
Have a good one

I got a little done on Kim's sashing yesterday, spent the weekend getting some hand sewing lined up for if we lose power from Irma.

This is a lot of work but should be worth it in the end.
I have pricked my fingers so many times with tiring to learn hand quilting that I am wearing Band-Aid's!
Have a good one friends

Yesterday I gathered every thing I needed and took it out on our enclosed back porch.
I keep a table set up out there for sandwiching.
I had picked out a sheet for the backing. Light pink!
So maybe I will get some muslin next week when we go to Hammers sale for a backing. Not going to finish it this month any way.

I cleaned Friday and then Sis came over so didn't get any sewing done on this until Sunday.
I cut my borders and attached them, just small strips of the black fabric.
I measured and it measures 90 by 96! Should be a good size. A little bigger both ways than the chart says.
After washing it , should be just right.
Maybe I will have time to sandwich it today but I don't see how I could possibly finish it before Friday so I guess it will be a finish for next month.
Have a good day

See one little square going the wrong way. Had to take out two so I could turn it and sew it back right.
I had one whole row that the blocks were fine but they were all turned on their side!
That was a easy fix just rip the side seams out and sew them back the way they were suppose to be.
Have a great weekend

This is mindless sewing!
I need to make some for the tops and between the next three blocks.
Todayif I can! If not tomorrow
Went this morning and got some field corn to put in my soup. So that will take most of my day today.
I put these up Wednesday.
Don't know how it will taste but will try it in about two weeks.
Have a great weekend

Didn't have much time to sew yesterday but I made another chain of the sashing. then I picked a block and laid it out with them.
Had to add to the block to square it up!
John deer is getting old and it takes lots to keep in running. Glad hubby can work on it.
He swears next time he will by a new one!

Haven't got them all sewed together yet but I did make this for the bottom.
Hubby is working on her and if I can keep him from tightening the screws to tight maybe I will be able to clean her out good.
Got to go save my baby from muscles!
