|Starting point this morning|
Since his rag quilt has been in the works for many years, she decided it was time to get it done. Knowing that I have 2 baby rag quilts to do myself, (one baby is coming in 16 days, the other one shortly after that) she challenged me to getting mine done this weekend too. So we decided we would marathon sew across the miles…….and will post our progress on FaceBook Sunday night.

Now I have to arrange them into the actual quilts so I can get them sewn up tomorrow. I enjoy figuring out a pattern, while I tend to stick to the basic rag quilt, 9 inch squares, I enjoy laying out the different material, sometime in diamond, sometime in 9 patch, sometime in 4 patch squares, and sometimes just an every other one thing.
During one of my breaks I decided to pull out a little bit of stitching. It's been a month since I've had a needle and thread in my hands. Since I didn't feel like stitching anything too challenging, I pulled out the 2nd chart for my SamSarah "The Flock" and managed to get it done today as well :) Haven't sewn on the buttons yet, will do that last. I pulled out the 3rd chart and will work on it over the next week, not a lot on each chart, so they are easy to get done. the 3rd chart is a bird that goes between the words "the" and "bird" and the top border.
Now I have out my Bent Creek - Spooky Halloween Mantle and might spend a few hours stitching on it as well today. I'm still on Part 1 of 3, would like to get it done. Hoping to post a picture tomorrow or Monday.
Lastly, I got back my Halloween Tree from the framers, just need to find a place to hang it up :)
Hope you are having a great weekend too!!
