This and That September

The past month has been a busy one for me.
It was mostly spent with family.
Spending time with the grandchildren and their  families.

Spending time with my DH and his airplane.
Here we are at a gathering in Illinois.  Quite a flight from Georgia.
I also managed to get a little quilting done.
If you have any young girls around you know how popular the characters from "Frozen" are.
I made these two little quilts for the granddaughters.

My September Benjamin Biggs block all stitched.

Last months Noah and Matilda blocks.

I have also started stitching on the Di Ford Mystery quilt.
I must say I am not loving this one because of the difficulty I am having getting all this broderie perse appliqué   to fit in the space allowed.

Happy stitching,

Flags of the American Revolution

A group of quilters are sewing along with Lori from Humble Quilts to make the quilt Flags of the American Revolution from the book with the same name.

The first installment was to be the eagle.   I did manage to get the eagle stitched but not the setting triangles and stars.

I am linking up with Lori.  She is showing some great pictures of what others have made.   It’s always fun to sew along with others and see how they interpret the pattern.
Happy stitching,
