It has been a while since I’ve posted any updates.  I’ve finally finished the FMQ on Shoji Screen.  It has been on my FAL list every quarter this year so hopefully I will get the binding on and have it as a 3rd quarter finish.


Urban Windows is a finished quilt top.  I have a week of vacation starting on September 1st so I hope to get it on the frame then.  I am so glad that I finally decided to play with my quick curve ruler.  Coincidentally, Sew Kind of Wonderful has a new QAL starting  the first week of September using the QCR and their Curve It Up pattern.  I’m looking forward to participating.

I took a picture of the quilt top before and after the sashing and borders were added.  It wasn’t until I was editing the pictures on my laptop that I realized I had missed putting the top and bottom borders on….so it was back to the sewing machine.  I forgot to take another pictures after the missing borders were added.

Instead of finishing one of my WIP,  I foolishly decided to start a new quilt.  I’m my own worst enemy.  It is Leftovers IV using fabric leftover from my Blue Odyssey quilt.  It’s my first time trying a string block.  They sure go together quickly.
