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!
