Set Machine up to start quilting...

My OMG at Elm Street Quilts for September is to get at least 1/2 of this quilt quilted.

I don't know if I will get it completely quilted in September because, well, life happens.

I need to have the whole thing finished by the end of October so that gives me 2 months to have it fully quilted and bound. That's more manageable for me since I do want to echo quilt around each of those boxes and dashes. I didn't start the quilting yet, but I am envisioning some maneuvering through my sewing machine. I'm getting on it after Labor Day for sure!

Pumpkin Patch Placemats Tops

Finished my OMG for August at Elm Street Quilts OMG. My original post was here: August OMG Goal.  I haven't had a whole lot of time this month, so I am glad that I did get these tops done.

The 3 at the bottom left are for a table runner. There was another border on the pattern, but I don't know if I am sewing it the way that it is.  At first when I sewed these, I didn't know if they even looked like pumpkins, but I guess they do. I actually do need some placemats so, hopefully, I can get these quilted and bound for Thanksgiving!

Pumpkin Patch OMG

I've had this kit for placemats and table runner for years, so I think it's about time to sew them. I won't say that I will have them quilted and bound (although, that would be nice), but since it is still Summer, I am just committing to the tops being done.

A completed Quilt top.

Finished this Dash in the Box quilt top. This was my July OMG and I'm glad to say that I completed it. I enjoyed sewing this quilt top and I think it is kind of unique.

I want to have this quilted and bound in Fall for a Birthday present for my son. He moved into a new house and I thought he could use a new quilt for his couch.
