October's goal for ALYoF is a finish...

I bound the quilt while vacationing in French Link Indiana.
(just got home a few hours ago)
We snapped a few pictures while touring
the area.
 This picture was taken in front of an antique shop
in Worthington Indiana.
Unfortunately it was closed, one of many shops that were closed.
This picture was taken at the train station in
Jasper Indiana. 

I'm linking up to October's ALYoF party with Melissa and Shanna
and to
finish it up Friday with crazy mom quilts

October's goal for ALYoF, a blue beauty...

...last year's blue beautyGAAQG 2013 volunteer quilt...

My goal for October's ALYoF is to help 
Christa finish the 2014 GAAQG volunteer quilt.
Once we have it all pieced
I volunteered to quilt and bind the quilt.
Still lot's to do before the end of October.

We are using the same pattern as we used last year
Zuckerwatte (Cotton Candy) by Bonnie Hunter
from her String Fling book.
We decided to make the quilt this year without the scalloped border.
This quilt has a lot of paper pieced blocks...
I have the paper removed from rows 6 through 10, my half of the quilt
...messy and not fun!!!
The outer border is pieced, the binding is made.
We will be stitching together sometime this week.
Hopefully we will have a finished quilt top by the end of the week.
(sorry about the shadows...picture was taken in my basement)

I love this quilt and would be 'over the moon' excited if my name is drawn...

I'm linking up with Melissa and Shanna.

Enjoy your week!!
...it's always fun to stitch with friends...

September's ALYoF, and my heart is singing...

Well... let me say I've waited to the last hour again....

My September goal for ALYoF was to
embroider 3 of the smaller blocks of  Vintage Tin by Crabapple Hill
...and I am happy to say I made my goal.

Crabapple Hill VINTAGE TIN Stitchery Quilt Pattern

Since September is National Sewing month
I have been stitching and sewing a LOT!!
I started the motocycle block and
I'm sure, I know...it will be the last block I finish!!
Here are the blocks I've finished so far...
