It has been a busy week trying to finish up some projects and get back this week to Month 9 of my Garden Party Down Under BOM. Plus I have been working on getting the Curio quilt top completed as well in order to get it to the quilter and back no later than mid December, as it is a January birthday gift.I got the 4 patch 9 patch blue and cream/tan charity quilt top finished and prepared a binding of blues for it completed. While doing a much needed carpet shampoo in my sewing room I discovered a bin with all the block pieces cut and ready to go. It was a good project to start and finish while the carpet dried.I had to replace a baby quilt in my stash, as one of my daughters needed one for a baby shower she was attending. Often I have had them long arm quilted, but decided to quilt this one myself. A bit larger than I prefer to quilt things at 42 by 42 inches, but it was a breeze. I certainly, in the future will do more of these small quilts myself. Last Sunday evening my two daughters, a daughter in law, and I attended a fun event at our local synagogue for Rosh Chodesh and canned pickles. Just bring 6 mason jars and $10 and they provided everything else. Such fun!
What a fun way to make pickles! I like your finished quilts. What a bonus to have a couple of baby quilts ready. . .I need to do that!--TerryK@OnGoingProjectsReplyDelete
The 4 patch/9 patch quilt is a pretty one - love all the blues! Sweet baby quilt, too. That's about the size I am most comfortable quilting also, and they finish up pretty quickly. Yummy pickles - that does sound like fun!ReplyDelete
Love all the nine patch action in your 1st pic!ReplyDelete
What a great idea for making pickles!ReplyDelete

You did that as the carpet dried? Oh, my. That is stupendous. So much talent. Have a wonderful week.ReplyDelete
Group pickle making sure sounds fun! Nice quilts, you go with that quilting!ReplyDelete
I like the blue patchwork! The fabrics in that baby quilt are too cute. What a clever idea for canning - that would be so much fun.ReplyDelete
Thank you for sharing with us at To Do Tuesday!
Love the idea of canning in a group! Such fun. Love that adorable blue charity top. Somebody is going to simply love it. Thanks for sharing on Wednesday Wait Loss.ReplyDelete
Homemade pickles are that absolute best. Makes it hard to buy them at the grocery store when they are all eaten though! Cute quilts too!ReplyDelete
I love your 4 patch 9 patch top, these blocks are going so well together. Baby quilts are fun to make, and it looks like you had a lot of fun with the girls ;)ReplyDelete
Thank you for sharing!
Interesting event to make pickles. We canned a lot years ago but never have time now.ReplyDelete
Oh I like that 9 patch 4 patch one - how funReplyDelete
and cute replacement baby quilt Thanks for Also Linking to Finished ( or Not) Friday!!
I would never have thought of combining four patch and nine patch blocks together, but they certainly look great, must remember that idea. That's a pretty cot quilt, it's great to have one or two in reserve, just in case.ReplyDelete
