Weekly WIP

It's pretty trite to say something like "I can't believe October is half over", but good Lord, I can't believe October is half over... So many things yet to get done!

I did manage to get this one finished for the church dinner!  I LOVE LOVE LOVE this one, and may have to make another one for me... It brought over $500, so I was pleased with the outcome! 

I went with a pretty simple all-over quilting design, in the interests of both visual simplicity and time.

And the name of the quilting design was "Leaves", which just seemed way too appropriate for this quilt!

Some other minor progress - I'd forgotten I'd signed up for a fabric stamp swap, so I quickly got a bunch of those put together.  Fun little project!

And I've made progress on my guild quilt.  I always forget how much I love Kate Spain until I start working with her fabrics again.

My goal for the weekend is to get Shenandoah and Winter Garden quilted.  Neither should take long, as I'm planning on doing pretty basic quilting on them, and they're both relatively small.  I've been trying to work on the guild quilt in the house.  Not always easy, there's always other stuff to do in the evenings.  I'm trying to be more intentional with the time I spend with the kids, too, and of course that takes time.  I'm attempting to work out at lunch during work when possible; it extends the day a bit, but I save all that time at home.
