The September block was designed by Sherri at A Quilting Life. She was so very creative with the fabrics from the Kasse Fasset Collection and put together a fantastic block and tutorial. She also continues to amaze me with her ongoing projects and tutorials. Not having any of those Kasse fabrics on hand, I went to my stash of some really neat fabrics I picked up this summer when visiting Bar Harbor. Have a peek:
Yes, the fabrics are a little outside of my comfort zone, so I toned it down with a neutral background. I'll incorporate some of the greens and even those fancy polka dots down the road!
Here is my finished block. (Sure hope it's the camera that is making it look crooked!)
I also joined Lesley's Sew Happy Christmas Sewalong . For 8 weeks, she will share a Christmas themed embroidery project...by Christmas it will be finished...unless a person procrastinates! My first "Ho! Ho! Ho!" should be finished in time for the next installment on Friday. Thanks so much, Lesley, for coming up with this idea!
I love the sharing that goes on in this blog world! Everyone is so generous! Now, if I could only figure out how to put buttons on my blog so you could quickly connect to these neat places! Thanks to Lesley's help, I'm trying to figure it out. Stay tuned!
