so my girls favorite barista at our local Biggby is getting married in about a month. so being a quilter, i went digging through my stash and found two Simply Colorful II charm packs that were just the perfect colors. i settled on a disappearing nine patch and with a couple of borders this turned out to be a pretty nice quilt top. i just finished piecing the back together, now to just pick up some batting and it's quilting time!
i can't wait to surprise her with a quilt! now i just have to convince Nora not to tell her the next time we see her at the coffee shop.
in addition to my nine patch quilt, i played around with my mini QCR. since Christmas will be here before too long, i found some Christmas fabric in my stash and figured it was time to use it!
first up a cute curved star block that will be turned into a cushion cover.
next with my leftover squares, i made up a small cushion, that i just know the girls are going to be fighting over. i love that i'm starting to accumulate a nice collection of handmade Christmas decorations for my home. maybe one of this years, i'll finally make a tree skirt or some stockings.
now if only the weather would cool off, i'm ready for fall!
