A Quick Update

I'm back again with a quick update! I finished my second block for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge ~ Reverse Star!
I'll be linking up to Scrap Happy Saturday over at So Scrappy! 
Go here to see my Waterfront Starburst block.
I also was able to sew all my house blocks for the Mosaic Mystery Quilt ~ the 1st sewing step of the mystery hosted by Meadow Mist Designs. 
I’m linking up to September House Block linkup at Meadowmist designs. 
I also made the bonus HST blocks! They will have to wait to be trimmed to size. 
I'll be away from my sewing room for a week so I'll see if I can get another block done before I leave. 🤞🏻

September Already?

We are already a week into September!  Can you believe it? Where did the summer go?
A new month and a new color for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge...and the color is Purple!
I was able to get one of my 2 blocks finished so far...Waterfront Starburst.
I'm linking to Scrap Happy Saturday over at So Scrappy!
I also finished another of the blocks for the Quiet Play Pattern Club! This one a picture block!
I'm still behind on these blocks but I keep plugging away at them. 
And finally...a finish!
I did get the binding sewn down on my Christmas Trees quilt! This quilt is made using Those Trees pattern by Zen Chic. Most of the fabric is fabric I inherited from a friend of a friend. The gold for the stars is fabric from my stash. This quilt will travel to Austin with me for my DD2 and family.
Christmas Trees is machine pieced and appliquéd. 
The quilting is machine stitched in vertical straight-lines and diagonally following the angle of the trees boughs. 
The binding is made with the fabric of the trees. 
The backing has scattered pine boughs. This quilt finishes at 43"x 55".
