A LittLe CuTiE

I heard about this "basket" while zooming with Karen awhile back.
I thought I'd give it a try... & I'm so happy I did.

I'll definitely be making more of these in the future...
They are reversible...  AnD ... can be folded flat for transport...

It's called a PODLET... & the FREE instructions can be found on YouTube... HeRe.

A FiNiSH

Last night at  Friday Night Sew In  I stitched the label on BLuE BoY.
The quilt pattern is called Whimsical Quilt & is available at fabshophop... HeRe.
I used 90% donated fabric scraps & I even pieced the backing with a scrap.
I quilted my interpretation of a fleur de lis design with some connecting leaves. 
This 60" x 75" is headed to a Novocastrian Quilters Guild supported charity.

And I had time to sew another Crazy Star block together too. 
This time in a light lime green...

THiS-n-THaT...

Over 3 days last weekend, I "virtually" spent quite a few hours with lovely, talented, interesting & funny FRienDs... although we should have been at our retreat... this was the next best thing.👌😀
Thank you ladies for helping me cope with Covid lockdown.

I completed a CRaZY STaR block in RSC2021 September's colour of ORanGe ...

And another block in ReD...
<> <> <> <> <>

A few Scottie Dogs were added to the design wall too...
I quilted the first block to trial if I could draw/stitch a "bone" design...
I'm very happy with my drawing ability 😀😜... & I'm very thankful for
having enough colourful backing fabric in my stash bucket to finish it.

I also worked on BLuE BoY again this week... row 4 completed.✅
This final row is prepared, so it's sitting patiently waiting it's turn...👍

Keep on... Keeping on...

It MuSt be coming to an end...🤞... as vaccination rates are climbing...

With so much TiMe on my hands... I finished the flimsy...  Flower Trellis.
I'll send this large quilt off to Julie so she can work her magic. 
It's just a tad too big for me to want to handle under my domestic... 
but first I need the shops to open so I can purchase the backing...😔
<> <> <> <> <>

And the "BiRDs" quilt has progressed... with a definite SPRinG feel to it...
Tracing... fusing... placing... heating... stitching...
The inner border was next... but now I'm waiting for the border fabric to arrive...
<><><><>

I decided on the next charity quilt design too...
Started cutting black & white blocks using my SCRaPs...  & my Crazier 8 templates.
 A large 16inch block with a black centre this time... 
but colours are next on the agenda...
These templates are a great way to use up your scraps AnD you get a hidden gem.

And row 3 of Blue Boy was free motion quilted...  & then joined.
As you can see I'm using the QAYG method.

At FNwF...

 It was wonderful having you over to sew along with me last night...
well it felt like we were all together at least... 
so now I look forward to visiting your blog over the weekend.
Yesterday... 
I layered the "Bricks" flimsy that was completed late August- shown HeRe...
which at the time was going back to the guild for some other member to quilt
but not knowing when Guild will start up again, I decided to do the quilting too.
So at FNwF... a simple line & lollipop swirl pattern was FMQ.
I trimmed all the edges so it's ready for the next step...
I'm still to shop for matching binding fabric... but it's one step closer to a finish.

WOOFA...
It's hard to believe another month has started. 📅
All the days seem to roll into one really... but I chose my project never-the-less.
It's a "Bird" quilt, with inspiration taken from the book by Wendy Williams...
I'm just going to have a PLaY for now... to pass the time...

I hope you will join me by choosing your WOOFA project this month...

 Friday Night with Friends.
I think it's very important this month - especially under the current circumstances - for us to get together. Even virtually, contact with Friends is good for the soul.
This Covid lockdown is keeping family & friends apart... but FNwF will HeLP...
Come on over this Friday to sit & sew with us...

AuGuST WOOFA

I'm so excited to celebrate a finish this month... 
yes the wall hanger called HARVEST is done...
It's been delivered to my SIL & she said she LoVeS it...
I'm really happy with it too.
a  l-o-t of quilting went into this... so the scene/farm would have dimension...

The paper printout my SIL asked me to replicate in fabric...

I hope you all had a successful month of sewing your chosen project.
Please share any improvement or a finish of your WOOFA by
simply adding your post link below & we'll come over to visit.
After all... during Covid-19 lockdowns... we all need company.
