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!
