What I have been sewing

I haven't done a lot of sewing lately.

On my After Retirement To Do List was participating in a quilt shop BOM.  So below is the second block from my LQS First Saturday BOM.  So far I am keeping up.

I also made two Bendy Bags after taking Joan Hawley's Zip It Up class on Craftsy.  I recommend the class and enjoyed the projects.

I have started one of my Row by Row kits that I acquired this summer, but no pics to share yet. 

The last picture is some of my scrappy nine patches that I have been sewing out of 2 inch squares.  I am working it as a Bonnie Hunter style Leader and Ender.  I have about 80 made and don't know yet I will make with them.

Friendship Stars

I'm trying to finish up projects.  These blocks were from a swap on the APQS forums.  I have a few extra that I am piecing in to the back.  This quilt will be a donation from the Quilters Guild of Plano.  It has to measure 40 x 60 and include a matching pillowcase. These quilts will be for kids but I wanted to contribute something that might work for an older child.

I have made the pillowcase and I am finishing the back today.  I have decided to not quilt it until my longarm is set up sometime later this month.  It is tempting to finish it now but I can spend the time rearranging and organizing the room the longarm will be in.
