October 2019 Happenings

Last weekend I was disappointed we didn't win at Cow Patty Bingo, but this week I won this beautiful Harper's Garden Fat Quarter Bundle on Instagram from Hunnie Quilt. You can pick up the bundle here:
The fabrics are lovely and her prices are good and shipping is free!
 My secret sewing project for an upcoming Fat Quarter Shop sew along is ready for pinning. I am pinning it today and getting started on the quilting. I am straight line quilting it along the length. It is a modern looking quilt because of the fabrics I chose, so I think the straight line quilting will enhance it. I am making this for my friend, Troy, to use during his 18 months of chemo. It will have a cozy, gray minky backing. Wait until I can share the whole thing, it is really cool looking!
I am a little late for this sew along--the Sunday Best Quilt Sampler. I am using some of my Bonnie & Camille stash for the blocks.
I ordered a navy with white circles to use as the sashing, but it still has not even shipped and the seller has not responded to my inquiry. I hope to make the two blocks this week and add the sashing when it arrives.
An Ombre Gems Quilt Along began this week. I have had the pattern and these fat quarters for quite some time waiting for this project. I am going to get going on it this week.
It is Sunday, so laundry, football, quilting, and cooking are on my agenda. I just washed and changed our sheets and put the Scrap Dance Waltz Quilt on our bed. I haven't washed it yet to get the crinkly goodness--it is so big I need to take it to the laundromat. I also need to figure out our pillows, but the dachshund shams my sister made me look cute on it. I also picked up navy and white gingham sheets at Marshall's a month ago that look good with all the Bonnie & Camille scrappiness. It is supposed to get down to 19 degrees this week, so we need a heavier quilt on the bed. The cold evenings help me get cuddled up with some hand binding. Have a great week!


  1. Who would know by all your sewing that you are back to school. Love the new,bundle and your bedroom looks super cute with the quilt with the little dachshunds included. I don't think we're expecting temperatures that cold over here on the front range. I'm not quite ready for that yet.

  2. Yeah to new fabric, and those are such lovely projects you're working on!

  3. Waltz looks fantastic!! I think your dachshund shams are perfect with it.

  4. Congratulations on your win! Your quilt looks great on your bed, especially with the shams!

  5. Awesome win! I had my eye on this gorgeous bundle too! Looking forward to what you make with it!

  6. Congrats on your awesome fat quarter bundle win! Your Sunday Best Sampler Quilt is lovely. The Scrap Dance Waltz quilt is beautiful!

  7. Scrap dance look beautiful on your bed. I love the pillows. I too love the crinkly goodness after the quilt has been washed.
