September, 2012 Quiltathon Final Report

The Quiltathon weekend for September has just about finished up. Please share a link above to any projects you may have worked on during the four day Quiltathon. You’re welcome to make it a kind of summary if you wish.

Here’s what I got done:

The Deep in the Heart of Texas top was quilted and trimmed.  The binding is made but not yet attached.

Some of the blocks are completely made for the Sing a Happy Song quilt.  The remaining blocks have a good portion of them done.

After a long nap this afternoon, I’ll probably be sewing for a few hours but I’m switching over to piecing a backing and loading a top that I need to get quilted tomorrow.

The October Quiltathon will be:

October 4, 5, 6 and 7

That’s early in the month but it’s the only available weekend I have.  I’m working on another simple design to offer (It has 16″ blocks!”).  You’re welcome to work on your own projects or the pattern I provide.  Please try to join us then.

    I got my Mystery quilt quilted, binding on & hanging sleeve done. Also did cutting on my Orion Star quilt & actually got 5 blocks done! Wish I could post a picture of the mystery! It came out really great!

      The next Quiltathon I will be quilting with my online buddies from author Marie Bostwick’s Cobbled Court Quilt Circle at our retreat in CT. For any quilters who haven’t read her books, I highly recommend the Cobbled Court series. Nobody can tell a story and create characters that you will grow to care about like Marie!! As usual, I didn’t get as much done as I would have liked.

    Like Diane i also didn’t get as much done as i would have liked, but i made good progress on my curent project. the quilt i’m making is called “Saddle Tramp” (PAL#139) by it’s a great pattern for using up fabric strips and extra fat quarters, and also for exploring the wide world of neutrals (for the sawtooth stars). during this Quiltathon i’ve gotten all the strip sets made and squared, all the border strips cut, and half of the sawtooth stars made. i’ve got 13 more stars to make, and then i can start putting this quilt together. thanks Judy for giving us some dedicated quilting time each month!

    That Texas quilt turned out to be a real looker! Vince should love it, heehee hee. Think I’ll try to join the October Quiltathon. I’m feeling really good and have projects to work on. Some “enforced” sewing time would do this body good! Thanks for providing the stimulus 🙂
