September Decor and More
I was enjoying the red, white, and blue decorations so much that I just barely switched them around. I love how the red, orange, and yellow combination brightens up my great room.
I realized that I don't have anything else in that color combination. So I pulled out my old lace table topper. My mom always used one just like it on this table when I was growing up. It brings back lots of memories.
Although, it makes me want to stop everything and make something red, orange, and yellow. ;)
I do have a back to school quilt which I hung.
It is sweet, but not as bright.
Most of what little sewing time I had this summer went to making baby gifts. Here are ten more, mostly for baby boys. They aren't quite as interesting as quilts. ;)
Two were quilted by my mom on the Bernina Q24 and eight were quilted by me with my Baby Lock Tiara. They all have Hobbs 80/20 batting. Half were Franken-Batts. It felt good to use up batting scraps.
I did all of the bindings.
Now I need to go deliver them.
I often wonder if I should simplify my baby gifts, but then I always go back to these sweet little flannel quilts that are about 42 by 54 inches. They are fun to make.
