Sewing, Sewing, Sewing

That's what I have been doing lately, trying to get all the things off my "gotta" list. 
 I can cross off 2 more things now!

I was cleaning out a bag to use on the shop hop when I found 2 Birdie Stitches blocks all embroidered and waiting to have the squares sewn around them, so I did that.  

August



September



Not too bad just 3 more to stitch and I can put the quilt together!  
(Oh who am I kidding, those are going to take me forever! LOL)

I put this quilt together this weekend also.  
I did a U of M one and then this one. 
 Both are donation quilts for Margaret's Hope Chest's quilt for kids drive. 



I sent it off to Liz for quilting yesterday.  
I got my Sliced Apples quilt back from her last night with hairy caterpillars all over it! 
 I need to trim it up and bind it. 
 I also got the U of M quilt back to trim and bind too. 
 I will try to take some photos tonight.  

I still need to cut out the zig zag quilt for MHC but I don't think that is going to happen too soon. 
 I am going to lay out the quilt Yolanda sent me for her nephew
 but will bring the white to cut tonight too.  
Two good things to get done tonight!  
I am meeting Stacey tonight for dinner too. 
 I am looking forward to catching up with her.

I am going to the Appleseed Quilt show in Fort Wayne Indiana and I leave tomorrow. 
 I am taking her class and we will be discussing upcoming projects too. 
 It should be a blast! 
 I am really looking forward to spending some time with her too.  
OK I gotta dash, more later!

Sounds like you have some wonderful plans to enjoy. Me - sticking indoors (heat) with all the fans at full steam.

Love your Birdie Stitches. I have two more to do, too, but they keep getting shoved to the back of the list. Your colors are beautiful!
