First Intentions Update for September

Sending you sunshine and smiles,
Spent some time down by Shem Creek. 
     No picture of my messy calendar, but I 
Posted intention areas for the month, and announced the winner of August giveaway. 
Quilted this for Betty. I used an edge to edge design. I used Bottomline and Fantastico, both from Superior Threads. 
Edie dropped off a QOV top, batting, and back. We decided on a gentle edge-to-edge meander. King Tut and Bottom Line were used.  
Final decisions on fabrics for Terrie's Mystery Quilt Along. 
And the first 8 units. 

The surface design swap pieces, Aug and Sept, and a package to Monica, the winner of the August Giveaway, have been mailed out. 
I chose the collection above for the free Craftsy class, BOM Summer 2015. 
These three quilts are bound and ready to be given to my quilt guild's special project. 
           No before and after pictures, but we,
Cleaned out the attic that was filled with building materials, left by previous owners. The useful stuff went to our local Habitat for Humanity Restore. 
These three table runners are quilted and bindings are finished. The fabric across the top was used for backings, makes useable during the Christmas Season. 
Cut and packaged hand dyes for a special event at Cobblestone Quilt Guild meeting, tonight.

I also have bindings cut for 4 more Charity quilts. I ran out of steam about noon today! 
This is a good start to September. I'm keeping focused and getting some projects off my list. 
I had hoped to get my Improv pieces quilted but I chose to cut those bindings instead. 
I'll be back in about ten days with another update. 

May God bless the work of your hands,

I wish we could get together at a DyeIn Retreat. I've not heard of one, but maybe next spring I could get one together. It could be great fun.
Thanks for dropping by,

PS I would have chocolate covered caramels at the retreat!!

Lovely photo of you, Luann. I'm trying to catch up on blogs - I can't believe how long it's been since I checked in. Just goes to show how busy I've been. Unfortunately, I haven't done much textile art but family comes first.
