Do you remember old shampoo that said wash, rinse and repeat? That's what I feel like this is. A rinse and a repeat of my September One Monthly Goal. That goal just didn't get done because I didn't count the pieces correctly and ran out of them after 10 blocks while I was on retreat, at the end of the month. Sigh. Here's 9 of them that did get done.
I must say I really like how it is turning out even if I didn't get the 20 blocks all made, bordered and a complete top during September. My OMG for October is to get this quilt to top stage. If I'm really lucky I'll get it quilted and bound during the month but I'm not offering up that as my goal. I'm ready for another success!
Happily, I can report that Ruthie, the long arm, is repaired and quilting like a champ. I've finished another row of quilting with 3 more to go. Darn this holly design is really dense as it is taking 25+ minutes to stitch each row. But I must say it looks terrific on the Christmas trip around the world. My preference is for looser quilting but I am thrilled with the results so far.
I'm linking up with Elm Street Quilts One Monthly Goal October Link-Up and Mid-Week Makers. Take some time to see what folks are working on around the Internet.
That's it for me. I've got to get downstairs to finish quilting my Trip Around the World today.
Happy Quilting All! Bonnie
