The Past Few Months

Hi Everyone!!  Just popping in to say hello!    September, wow, where did the summer go?  Although here in Illinois today is going to be 90 degrees!  I love the last push of summer. I will be sorry to see it leave. The children are back in school and a routine has started to settle back in everyone's home.
As for sewing I have been working on smaller projects throughout the last few months..
I found a great pattern on Instagram for a see through pouch.
  Zipper and all!

I also have been embroidering. Found a wonderful designer named Sherri Falls. Her Company is called This and That.  I just love her patterns. Check her out HERE.

My love of hexies continues......

We took our youngest daughter back to college on August 15th (way too early for my liking!).
We had to rent a car and I sat in the back seat because she gets car sick.  It was only a four hour drive so no problem for me! 
She is one happy camper!

I am working on a king size quilt for my daughter and SIL.  She choose a beautiful shade of gray.  She is very traditional so I am making the good old nine patch! 

I am using these Halloween fabrics as my leader ender quilt. I am using the pattern, Fast Four Patch by Amy Smart of Dairy of a Quilter. She has a tutorial on her blog HERE.
Most of these fabrics are from Riley Blake called Witch Hazel and the rest from my stash. 

I am also collecting the fabric line Feed Company by Sweetwater for an upcoming quilt.

Lastly, I am finishing my Farm Girl Vintage blocks by Lori Holt of Bee in My Bonnet.  Link on my side-bar.  These and others item are posted on my IG feed.  Just a few too many pictures to post!
Hope you stop by to visit.

Well friends, that is what I have been up to the last few months.  I hope all is well with you and that you are getting a chance to do something you love,   Happy Sewing!
