Last day of September

Little bits of sewing were made during September, most of which were for the Craft Sale, therefore not exactly quilt related. 

My OMG (One Monthly Goal) for September was to make a baby quilt using a meter of dove grey fabric I had in my stash for a long time. Some of you might remember this photo. 

I was first inspired by the quilt in this picture. (sorry it is somewhat small) Should I make it grey and lime or grey and yellow? I spent many days trying out different fabrics and then, my plan changed. Ever happened to you? 

On this last day of September, I am sorry to say that my progress looks like this; 

Not much, but it is a beginning. The blocks are 5.5 inches unfinished. Now that I look at the picture, I don't like the first orange square on the left. It is showing more white than I expected. 

I will join Heidi at Red Letter Quilts when the October goal setting link party opens as this project will become my focus point for the next month. 

With my first cup of coffee in hand, I like to read blogs. This morning was no exception. LeeAnna at Not Afraid of Color posted an interesting subject and lots of quilters answered her. I am adding the link here, so you can go and check it out. She is cleaning up her sewing room and came across some orphan blocks. She asks if we lose track of our UFOs, if we make blocks as a try-out and if so what do we do with them after, and things like that. In the comments, I found a few things I will start to do. Maybe you'll find some good suggestions too or you have one or two to offer her. Anywho, I have enjoyed reading that one. 

Until next ... oh almost forgot!! 

It was sunny (well, enough) so I took pictures outside of the RSC2016 top.


Not sure yet. Let me sleep on it. 

Some viewers ask me for the pattern and I obliged. If others would like the pattern for this block, just let me know and please make sure I have an email address to reach you. :^D

Also joining Angie at A Quilting Reader's Garden for WIPs be gone, because it is good to see the progress made on our WIPs. 

Until next time ... 



  1. Your design wall project looks intriguing, even if it's not moving along as quickly as you'd like! And I do love your peace and plenty very very much! (I'd put a border on it, but I put borders on almost everything...)

  2. Your design wall have fantastic projects.Great job!

  3. Hi Chantal! Fabulous projects on the go. I would put a border on the RSC2016 but that is just personal preference. The little photo would be lovely in yellow and grey. It is such a in vogue combination at the moment. The baby quilt is going to be so cute.

  4. Interesting how projects evolve isn't it. Great outdoor pics of the RSC. xx

  5. Ahhh il y a des mois ou nous n'avancons pas et d'autres où nous sommes inspirées....octobre va t'inspirer et je suis d'accord avec toi, le carré Orange à gauche est trop clair ! ;)
    Je vais aller lire ce blog, nouveau pour moi !
    Petite question de traduction : tu traduirait comment en français "anywho" car je n'ai pas trouvé.....
    Bon week-end et gros xoxo

  6. LOVE your RSC16 quilt! I'm working on three projects this year, but always on the lookout for RSC17 ideas.

  7. Good luck with your goal Chantal. Your RSC16 quilt is awesome!

  8. I'm sure your goal will work out....seeing it on the design wall over a period of time really helps! I am so glad to have your pattern and am looking forward to RSC 2017! :) Thank you!

  9. I look forward to seeing what direction this project takes you in. Sometimes fabric seems to have a mind of it's own; chained boxes suddenly become HST's, lol! Congrats on your RSC top, it is really cheerful!

  10. Deciding on the fabric is a beginning. Making some blocks - now that is progress. Love your RSC 2016 challenge. Thanks for the link from LeeAnna. I, too, found it interesting and helpful. And thanks for linking to WIPs Be Gone. It is always fun to read blogs.

  11. Thanks for the link!
    I love your pretty quilts, good luck with your OMG!
    I LOVE the RSC2016 top, can you send me the pattern, too?
