Days Off = Sewing!

Last week I had two days off, so I took advantage of the time and got some sewing done... not as much as I had hoped, but nevertheless I am happy with how much I accomplished.

Here are some heartstrings blocks I made for the October project - pink for the middle string in honor of breast cancer month. These quilts will go to breast cancer patients.

Here's a little quilt I made kind of by accident. I wasn't so sure that I liked it until I got it quilted. Then it looked lots better!

I didn't make all four of these this week, but I made the two on the left... then photographed all four of them together. They will be put in my church bazaar this week, and I hope they all sell. I had intended to make more Christmasy runners/toppers, but realized that I have very little Christmas fabric. And guess what... I didn't remember that the purple runner and the fall colors runner are made of the same block until I saw them photographed side by side! Silly me!

Finally, I made this crumbs quilt sashed in PINK. It's quilted but I have no appropriate fabric for the binding. I'll need to go shopping, or do some deeper scrounging in my stash and hope there's a dark pink I overlooked.

And to anyone who is wondering, the answer is no... I have not made any more green/blue HSTs. But I intend to very soon!! Stay tuned.

You've been a busy girl! They all look wonderful. I'm sure the table runners will sell easily.

You seem to have accomplished a lot just lately.Good on ya! I like the pink-sashed quilt and the blue and green one in the last post, it will be worth making all those HST's, believe me.

Great quilts! They are all so cheerful and colorful! Hope that the bazaar is successful.

Those table runners are fabulos, tell us how they went.
The pink sashing looks good, as do the strings, breast cancer October must be universal, Tracey

Look at you making pink string blocks. I like the colors in your blocks. Jennifer will have some fun when she starts assembling these tops from all the blocks sent in.

Beautiful fall photos - this is my favorite time of year and I'm loving the cool breezy weather; if it will just stay that way now I'll be happy!
