Wednesday Update

Wind, rain and a  7 hour power outage over the Thanksgiving Weekend but we still enjoyed a great meal and good conversation.  It helped that we decided to have our feast on Sunday, before the storm blew through :)  A couple of pictures, showing off the Autumn Table Cover...



Linking up with Midweek Makers #41 at Quilt Fabrication  and Let's Bee Social #146 at Sew Fresh Quilts.
My little Brother Sewing Machine has been humming along daily as I get caught up on my October BOM blocks.
The Sugar Block Club block this month was a quick sew, probably because I've recently made a pile of them for the Mod Bear Paws QAL... though this one, Bear Tracks, is comfortably larger, at 12" x 12"  than the previous ones ;)


4 1/2" Snowman Blocks for Quilt Doodle Designs 2016 BOM.  The eyes will either be little buttons or beads, haven't decided yet.  These will be corner blocks in the border, and I think the last blocks I'll be doing for this BOM.  I put my rows together early, BEFORE realizing there was sashing between the blocks... oops ;)  Those tiny pinwheel corner blocks don't appeal to me any way so I'm not going to pull out the ripper.



The last BOM block on my wall is October's  Needle and Thread for My Favorite Things, hosted by Sew Hooked.  I love this block!  It sewed up quickly, even for a paper pieced block, and turned out lovely, nice and crisp.

 
My wall is expanding downwards!  LOL  There are some other projects up there, things I'll post about over the next few days.  For now, a peak at: Bag #6, Aiming For Accuracy Challenge Block 2, Sleigh Bells, Star Wars Cushion Top, Needle & Thread, Meadow Mystery October Units, 100 Days 100 Blocks, Snowmen, Bear Tracks, Dear Grand Daughter x2, More 100 Days 100 Blocks

    1. Thank you maggie :) It changes daily. I'm so lucky to have a space that is all mine and tucked away so my clutter doesn't effect anyone else ;)

    1. Thank you Wendy, I was so pleased at how nice the table topper turned out. I was the only one who spilled anything on it, cranberries. That Needle & Thread is destined to become a mini, I just love it.

  3. My goodness, your machine is getting a workout! And yes, that paper pieced spool is adorable! Wouldn't those be fun in a row?
    Thank you for sharing on Midweek Makers - keep on sewing!

    1. Thank you for hosting Midweek Makers :) And for your comments, they are truly appreciated. There are some other blocks in the BOM that will look great as minis and I have a sloped ceiling that I can see from my sewing machine that has their names all over it :)

    1. Thanks Anja. Our street and the next one over were out, must be on an older grid. We had our dinner on Sunday, so the outage didn't effect it :)
