Something Completed

The Grow with Me Monkey quilt is finished and on its way to baby Emmett. Hopefully you can see the quilting in the photo: squiggles in the sashing and meandering in the pieced blocks. I also outlined the monkeys and rings they are holding on to with coordinating thread.

And look a mouth! My son noticed that I had forgotten to add a mouth, I used a black Pigma pen to draw the mouth and then stitched over it with black thread.

I really like how the name turned out. I completed the quilt with a flange binding, green print for the binding and white print for the flange.

Here is block 10 for the Machine Quilt Block Party.

I was a bit brain dead when cutting the sashing. I cut it at 2″ wide instead of 2   1/2″ wide. I was wondering what in the world I did wrong that this month’s block was so much smaller than all the rest. Dah! I had some ripping out and recutting to do to accurately complete the block.

I’m also sewing up a Christmas Tree Skirt for my daughter. This week’s progress:

My daughter asked for gold and cream prints. I selected 16 different prints and I sure hope she will be pleased with the outcome! I was hoping to have it sandwiched today, but decided to add another row to enlarge it.

I bought fabric to make pumpkins table runners, but have not gotten to them yet. They were kind of purchased on a whim.

I really have to finish up Christmas gifts before I allow myself to start yet another project. My goal is to complete the Timeless Traditions BOM for a Christmas gift this year. I’ve been working on for almost 2 years. Egads!  And of course the Christmas Tree Skirt, which I’d like to complete by Thanksgiving. Maybe I’ll get to the pumpkins and they can be Thanksgiving decorations – maybe!

    The baby quilt is so adorable, and the quilting is great! I’ve cut my sashing strips too short in the past too… Argh! At least it’s an easy fix! I just realized I forgot to send you the link to Sarah’s (Georgia Girl Quilts) and my Moxie quilts! Oops! Here’s Sarah’s finish:

    And here’s mine:
