Pat Sloan Vacation BOM

This is the last month of blocks for the Vacation BOM.  Filler blocks and borders and assembly are the instructions for October.  There are 2 filler block sets.  One has 2 blocks sewn together and the other filler blocks have a lot of piecing to do!  I'll end up with 13 blocks of one colorway and 19 blocks of another  colorway.

The 2 sewn together blocks are completed, name of Bathing Beauty.

And I'm working on the Sea Shells blocks.

I'm wondering why Pat didn't have us cut a larger square and dog ear all 4 corners rather than what we are doing??!!!  Wish I'd read ahead before cutting the pieces!!!  Lots of sewing  ahead on these fillers.

Keep on Stitchin'!!

October Little Quilt

Finished up the October Little Quilt from Quilt with Us-Connecting Threads.  It's not like the original as I mis-figured on my cutting...imagine that!!  And didn't have enough of all fabrics to recut.  So I followed the advice of It's Not a Mistake....It's a Creative Opportunity!  I won't tell you what's wrong because we're not supposed to point out our mistakes, right??!!

I decided to leave off the outer border and left this one to measure about 15" square.

Keep on Stitchin'!!
