WIP Wednesday

October already. How did that happen? I have been working on my brothers quilt. Love the way it turned out. The goal is to get this in the mail by the middle of the month. Just sewing the binding on now!
Went to my LQS and these table runners fell into my basket! One is totally complete and the other is waiting to be quilted. I have never done FMQ so thought these would be fun to play with. The first one just played with zigzag. I quite like the way it turned out. Number 2 I am going to attempt a spider web. Why not, just another form of straight line, right?

Lady of the Lake. Really close to a finish! Like making the backing, sandwiching, quilting and binding are nothing! Oh I love my rose tinted glasses! Tried this quilt with a straight setting as I am very tired of this quilt. Thought I could get away with some borders and call it quits. No dice. Boring. 

So plopped it on point, stunning!
I am re enthused!

As you can see the setting squares still need some tweaking. My brain does not do setting triangles well. I have never ripped so many seams as I did making those little puppies.

So, tired of those triangles I sewed up a baby blanket last night. It was all cut up and now it is a top. Instant gratification and not a seam ripper in site! Heaven!
My condo looks like a batting bomb went off in it as I am "relaxing" the cotton batting over the couch and table. Very Haloweeny!
Linking up to Needle and Thread.
On the personal front I have been grieving. Rob's birthday was last week. How he loved his celebrations! He would call it his birth month and celebrate every day. Prior to that Vancouver hosted Truth and Reconciliation. He would have been intimately involved with this. Oh the joys and sorrows he is missing. I give thanks every day for our life together. I miss him. Grieving.
