- More applique on the seasonal table toppers – √ Done
- Finish up the Ghastly Ghouls project – √ Done
We have joined Katy and Deanna in their Two By Four QAL. Cutting continues on the 160 rectangles and 280 squares needed to make a 60″ x 80″ quilt for the Merciful charity. I am anxious to get sewing on these beautiful fabrics, although this is officially a leader/ender. Sometimes you just want to do some mindless sewing.
Here is the first “dark” fabric matched with each of the ten light fabrics! We’ve made it through cutting all the lights now from the Fat Quarter bundle I won. It is looking like the 20-piece FQ bundle will be enough without supplementing from our stash after all. We’ll keep on cutting the dark fabrics this week.
This Thanksgiving topper is in the works for Sue’s sister. All four sections have been appliquéd and their sashing has been added along with a striped border. Up next is it needs to be layered, and quilted. There is plenty of time before it is needed for the holiday – it’s nice to have no-stress projects.
It won’t be long before the Gashtly Ghouls blog hop starts on October 18th.
We’ll have two table toppers to share on our day, which is Thursday, October 21st. We haven’t been real big on celebrating Halloween in years past but our littles are involving us this year. Paw Patrol characters will be invading us later this month . . . Last year, it was Toy Story! Jessie and Buzz were so little.
