Happy Fall!

I love Autumn! It should be a time of crisp weather and lovely changing colors. So far we are having record highs, it was almost 90 degrees Fahrenheit yesterday! And so far our Maple tree is turning brown instead of shades yellow, orange and reds. I’m hoping it will soon surprise me with it’s color brilliance!

On to quilting – Yippie! I finished the Hexie Panel quilt!

Read all about it in this post.

I need to buy a back for the Hexie quilt, and luckily the LQS is having a moving sale! 30% off. I try to buy backs from the clearance wall, but didn’t see anything I liked with enough yardage on the bolt last week. But I just got a notice from the shop, Edward’s Sewing Center, that they just added 200 more bolts to the clearance section, so I’ll run over again to take another look. 30% off their already discounted clearance section is hard to pass up!

Happy Little Things BOM embroidery for the block is complete.

One little goal for this week is to do the piecing with the fabrics shown. That way I’ll be ready for when block 3 is released.

My big goal for October is going to be to finish the quilting on a much neglected quilt.

This was supposed to be a wedding quilt for my son and DIL. I was hoping to have it completed by their first anniversary. They will be celebrating their 7th anniversary this month! I better finish it before the cold weather sets in or another year ticks by!

I did at least half of the quilting on it last month, so now is it a WIP or still a UFO!?

Last To-Do List:

  1. Keep working on Hexie Panel quilt. ✔️So happy! Quilt top all pieced!

To-Do List:

  1. Finish September’s Happy Little Things block
  2. progress on son’s wedding quilt

    Good afternoon! I am thrilled to see your hexie quilt is all finished. I just LOVE the colors in it. Especially the purple and yellow together, well and the green – it just makes me smile. Oh heck, all of it! The quilt you are working on now looking pretty, too. I know they won’t care when they receive it – it’s the thought and love that goes into it that counts. Thanks for linking up! Good luck finding the right background – I like to get them on sale, too. ~smile~ Roseanne

    So sorry I missed your post for To-Do Tuesday yesterday! (I must have been doing laundry, lol!) Hope you make some progress on your quilting this week. That is definitely hard when you aren’t happy with the quilt. Your kids are going to love it, though!
