I’m working on an 8″x10″ quilt for a 2014 calendar our guild will be selling next year. Each participant drew a month from a hat, and I got September. If I remember right, there are five participants per month, and we’ll vote at our Christmas party which ones will be included in the calendar.
September is a transition month between summer and fall, and I had a difficult time coming up with what I wanted to make. I like what I finally settled on. Here’s a little peek of it in progress. A hockey puck makes a great circle template!
It’s due on the 31st, but I need to finish it before the end of next week because my parents are coming to visit for a few days. I know I won’t have time to work on it while they’re here, and I have to clean up the studio/office because it’s third function is the guest room! I’m doing a lot of bead embellishment which I’ll work on tonight while “watching” the baseball game. My husband and I aren’t big baseball fans … in fact I think it’s barely a step above watching paint dry … but his family are huge Cardinal fans and we get caught up in it when they’re in the playoffs.
