These are my blocks from one of the guild mysteries. The dark is my background, and the light is my accent colour - so I keep having to remind myself to switch the dark and light in the instructions. Hopefully I don't forget that little tidbit before next month's clue comes out.

Look what I finished today! Well, not quite finished, because it still needs 2 borders. But the piecing is done, the sections are together, and the quilt barely fits on my design wall :)
Everything went together really well, but this quilt certainly is good practice for sewing accuracy. I probably should have checked a few of the blocks before assembly, but everything seemed to work out in the end.

In the mean time, I've been trying to clean my sewing room. I have 3 retreats coming up at the end of October, so I figure I need to be super organized in order to ensure I have enough projects to keep me occupied during all of that fabulous sewing time. So, I've been collecting and organizing bits in my sewing room, and trying to get quilts to a reasonable state to take with me.

Continuing to make progress on my Tula Butterfly quilt. A bit of Orange Crush added into the mix now. These are the "chunk crosses", and I also finished the floating crosses, but I don't seem to have that photo downloaded yet.
I'm really excited to see how this is going to come together, and I've been working on it almost every day this week. Incentive to get into my sewing room is great - but now I must push myself back to the long arm and finish up a couple of customer commitments for this month.
