Sew, Sew, Sew

Today I spent my entire afternoon in the sewing room trying to knock out a few of the projects I have going. I managed to finish the 20 star-point blocks complete with embroidering my name in the center for one of my Christmas exchanges.

(?? photos are loading sideways??)

Here's a photo of them. I can't wait to get my exchange blocks. They're sure going to make a fabulous Holiday quilt.
I decided on the fabrics for the CGQC Quilt Along. I'm going to make it in various tones of purple. I got a late start but, my fabrics are cut and I'll soon get to sewing the blocks together. I'll post photos later.

I've also finished my Halloween wall hanging. Here's a photo. The grandkids just love it. It was a really fun project to make.

Another finish is my mini-quilt for the CGQC exchange. This one was pinned to my design board for a couple of week now because I couldn't decide on the border. I kept changing my mind on the fabrics and just ended up with my original choices so it got finished today. I can't wait to put it in the mail to my "secret" exchange partner. So watch your mail ladies mine will be in the mail tomorrow. Sorry I can't post a photo till my partner receives it.

I didn't expect to make such progress on my projects -- it feels pretty good.

Anyway, I've only got two more projects left for October, they are the "Trip" queen size quilt for my bed and quilting along with the CGQC on the Half-Pint Quilt along. I' got to get caught up this week. Come back and look for my progress on the Half-Pint next week.
