Where did November go...

it feels like I have lost a whole month. My kids have one week left of school year and I guess I have been fully focused on sewing the last month that I lost track of time. 

I finished two customer quilts this month. This beautiful rainbow quilt and a fun boy quilt. 






Made a couple mini quilts for a few sewing friends birthdays.  This one is a pattern called On the Spot by Diane From Blank Pages.  


This little mini I went to the scrap bin to create. I made some nine patches and then cut them up to make the outer boarder. Love the tiny little squares and you can't go wrong with a wonky star.  I do really love coming up with my own creations. 


I finished my improv chasing geese project. I really love how the quilting turned out. 


My sewing area got a bit of a cheer up this month too. I used an IKEA print from my stash and recovered my iron board and made a new cover for my sewing chair. So much nicer.  The iron board was covered in glue now my area looks so bright and clean. 


I did a clean up of my project bins and pulled a few things out that I was just not loving and make a list of the tops I need to quilt and projects that I have started. This little improv project was at the bottom so I decided to just take a bit of time and finish it off. Did not really have a plan with this one just started sewing and cutting and this was the end result. I had other plans originally for this one but I felt it was time to move on. 

I finally finished piecing this improv piece this month.  This one has been a work in progress for a few months.  All the fabric is off cuts from another quilt that I pattern tested last year (still waiting for it to be released so I can show off). I am so excited that I was able to make the scraps into a fun projects. I really love the little snips of colour reminds me of Christmas lights.
           


I have tested a few patterns for other quilters this month. This one was published last week.  It is called Divergence by Crafty Ma and you can purchase it on Craftsy



No wonder I lost track of November. 

Thank you for stopping by and visiting. 

Cheers,
