Hello September!

Good morning my fine friends! How are you?  It's the first of September and do you know what that means? It's International Sewing Month! (but really isn't every month a sewing month?) To help us celebrate Fat Quarter Shop has generously supplied a FQS Curated Bundle of Buffalo Check Carolina Gingham from Robert Kaufman as a prize to one of my fine blogging friends.

Gingham!!!  It doesn't get any more my style than that. It's a staple, a basic, and this bundle is packing all the colors we love.

I am working on a Christmas applique quilt. Would love to have it done for December but as this is my third year of working on it - that would be a miracle! Thanks for the chance to win such a great bundle!

I'm nearly finished with a quilt I'm making for my son. It's HUGE and I'll be so happy to move on to a much smaller project. Hopefully the quilter will have it by next week! Gingham and polka dots are my favorites.

Great fabrics! THanks for thinking of us! Just finished my Easy Addition quilt, so stoked! Not sure what's up next, something in yellow, gray and pop of turquoise I think. Although I just ordered a bolt ( yes a bolt) of American Jane Pin Dot so maybe I need to cut into that...oh wait, I have 2 Christmas quilts to make...lol. ( and let's not talk about ufos) And it's September, time to get the pumpkins out!

I'm think about starting a new quilt from the Piece O'Cake team. I've been finishing up old projects all year and have been on a fabric diet because of that. I'm really starting to get the itch and don't know if I should carry on with UFO's (like I planned for 2016) or start something new. I love the Buffalo Checks.
