9 patch flower garden is bound.
Went to dinner and had it done on the trip.
I've been needing to make a table cloth for my table.
I can't find a 76" square table cloth.
So, I got a wide back and made one.
Just in time for Christmas.

Small Floral Quilting done
Finished up the floral quilting on the small floral quilt. Now to bind and have it ready for Mom's birthday.
My design wall changed a little.
I finished this little one.
I decided it is a good size for a wheel chair quilt and with the weather turning colder, it is a good Birthday gift for Mom.
I started sewing together the pieced blocks and didn't like the way it was working, so changed it up a bit.
I have a plan and hope it goes together well.
This one has not been touched, but hope to get to it soon.

Stashbuster Random Number generator
I forgot to check the numbers this month.
#5 is the Applique Pixie Garden
There are a number of the patterns in here to decide what to do.
I'll have to review it more to determine how many I'll work on or if the project changes.
#65 is the Horse Panel pillow.
This is not what i expected.
There are pieces cut, but nothing really put together.
I imagine this will go together fairly quickly.
The only sized pillow I have is 18".
I'll have to add fabric to this UFO.
This is a tiny quilt.
I was going to try and make it larger, but decided to just leave it be.
I'll quilt it up and add a scrappy binding and donate it to the
They are having it the Friday after Thanksgiving and it funds the activities program.
I'll quilt it this afternoon after we get back from lunch.
