Mid October, summer finishes

Am working on a few projects, getting some things done before I change houses for the winter season.  With the rain here in the Pacific northwest, am going to be very happy to arrive to our other home in warm sunshine.  Back to capris and sandals! 

I finished a 3 dimensional flying geese quilt that I started last fall and used Missouri star's tutorial to make them.  Warning for anyone considering this technique, be aware that your finished blocks have floppy edges and can catch in the quilting plus, with the extra layers of fabric, it makes a heavy quilt.





This second quilt is called Tweed and it is a jolly bar pattern from the Fat Quarter Shop.  Makes a fast quilt to assemble and good way to use an assortment of various fabrics. 




Still a few more projects to finish up and working slowly to get my sewing spaces tidied and organized so I can find what I am looking for when I return home.

    1. Yes, always fun to win. Have almost given up entering anything on blogs as I don't seem to have much luck.
