September is Gone

I can't believe how quickly September has come and gone.  Tomorrow is the last day of the month and it seems it just started.

I did complete my UFO for the month but very little else.  For this month I had on my list to finish the last nine embroidered block for the Hoop Sisters Embroidered Star Quilt.  There are 120 block total and I must have been crazy to start this.

Of course the next step is to trim all the blocks and join them.  After I figure out how to do that I will then have to cover the seams on the back.  It is going to be pretty if I ever get it done.  But I have to tell you if I had known all the steps with this quilt I don't think I would have let the shop convinced me to do this project.

I did get the binding on this little quilt.  I took it with use to the beach this last weekend.

I had taken another quilt to work on but because the weather was so absolutely gorgeous I did not stay inside to do much binding.  It was windy and the tide was on the way in when my husband and I went for a walk on Saturday evening.  

It was by birthday on Sunday and my husband gave me fabric and a pattern.  He got me a kit that we had seen a few weeks earlier and I had said I thought it would be fun to do.  Now I will have to brush up my paper piecing skills.
