Woodland Sampler - September

One month closer to the end of the year on my woodland cross-stitch.

The wind swirls were stitched with a white metallic floss that makes me think of bubbles!

My rainbow batik quilt is almost a finished top!  All it needs is two rounds of borders to make it complete!

Long Arm Trials

For some time now, the winter weather has been getting in the way of my ability to go try out some of the long arms I have been considering... but at the very end of last week, the forecast was cold and clear.  So I quickly whipped up a small quilt top from my stash and packed my bags for a trip to the Gammill dealer!

Apparently my stash is light on solids and neutrals, a fact which might need to be remedied for the future, but this black and white dot sashing worked out nicely!

The people at the Gammill dealer were very fun and knowledgable, and it was a pleasure to work with them.  I spent all of Saturday working my way through the quilting process and I am really excited about how my little quilt turned out!  There may be a Gammill machine in my future!

Rainbow Batiks Continued

Back in June I had put aside the blocks for a rainbow quilt so that I could make a baby blanket.  Since then a few other projects have gotten in the way, but I didn't forget about my rainbows.  I brought them back out last week to trim them down to a common size, and now the smallest rows have been connected.  All that's missing are the four long rows in the center!

I've enjoyed working with neutrals for a bit, but it's nice to get back into some color!

A Neutral Top

42 neutral blocks completed and one very calm log cabin top assembled.

I swear some of these fabrics go looking for wrinkles!

And now that tops are beginning to accumulate, I should probably start thinking about some backs!
