August Update

Happy Labor Day!!!!

August went by way to fast, I think this entire year has gone by way to fast.
My mom and I went on a weekend trip to "Missouri Star Quilt Company".  We had a great time.

Of course I spent way to much money, but we had fun.  The month of August is my birthday and my mom's.  Her's is on the 19th and mine on the 5th.  So we try to do something together in August every year.  She has never been to Hamilton before or have I so we thought this would be a great weekend trip.

One thing that I got was the "Mini Wonky Web Template" and triangle paper. Always wanted to try this block.  Watched Jenny's YouTube video on this. I just love how she teaches.

 Here is the first block from the "Mini Wonky Web"  There are 4 blocks for 1 block.  I did 2 completed blocks which are 12 mini blocks put together.

 I missed up on this one. So I have to make another one.  lol

While we was in Hamilton, we drove over to Cameron to pick up my "Row by Row Experience".  For this row there was 16 half square triangles.

 Working on quilting this now. So I can take it to the quilt shop before the end of September.

I also have been working on Skill Builder BOM 2014 with Pile O Fabic.


I am working on Christmas quilts now also, I can't really show to many pictures of them right now, but trust me they are going to be really cool when they are done.
One is a log cabin design that I did in EQ7.  There are 49 12" blocks in this quilt and with the boarders the quilt will be 102x102.  So far I have only done 20 blocks for this quilt.  So I need to get a moving so I can get it done before Christmas, cause I have 3 other quilts that I am also working on and a weekender tote.  This year is a old fashion Christmas for use, everyone is making items.

I have also been knitting some fingerless gloves.  I have one done working on the second one.

 So for the month of August I actually did 55 blocks. I couldn't believe it until I counted them all. So I bet my goal for this month.  The goal was 30.  whoo I am still on track.  I have completed 303 blocks for the year...

Keep Quilting!!!!
