HQAL - October 2019

I missed the last posting for HQAL. So I'm making sure to participate in this one. You are linked so you can check what everyone else was up to the last three weeks.

I was kept busy trying to finish a quilt in time for Susan's visit. It got done :) More about that in a minute.

Here's what I've been up to since my last posting:

Choosing flannels from the scrap bin to make a quilt for myself for the winter. Strips are cut and ready to sew.

Several months ago, I prepped all the pieces of this wall hanging as a gift for Susan when she came to visit at the beginning of October. I finally got all the hand stitching done and finished it by machine. I loved this little project.

And the one I'm most pleased with is this one. I call it what it is . . . 

JoAnn 1997

That's where and when I purchased the kits and I finally have it all piece, assembled and machine quilted. As is my usual, the binding I did by hand.

I've been stitching on Girls Getaway, too. I took a break from it the week Susan was here because we spent so much time at our sewing machines working on Suburbs.

Two of the four bicycles are finished. The third one is almost finished. Then the fourth needs to be done. I'm really hoping to get it all completed this week. It will be the first quilt to get worked on in January for finishing.

I was reminded yesterday, that it is almost PJ season. I have at least eight pairs to make, so I need to do inventory for patterns and sizes. 

Exactly where did this year go????

Thanks for stopping by,

Wishing you a day filled with the things that make and keep you happy.

For we live by faith, not by sight.

And Susan was so THRILLED to have the wall hanging! Now living at the top of my stairs. =) The bicycles are looking great, and I'm so sorry someone nameless reminded you of PJs. LOL It was a difficult job, but someone had to do it. More scraps of flannel for your quilt? Flannel is very warm in a quilt.

Those bicycles look like they would be so much fun to do! Hurrah for completing JoAnn, that should make you feel very good having an old UFO finished and out of the closet. :) Thanks for sharing your projects in the HQAL, Edi, it is always wonderful to see what you are up to.
