November [review]

Well that month flew by, didn't it? I got loads of sewing done - not just blocks, but actual, real-life finishes!

The #100days100blocks ended on 24th November and I have 178 blocks now waiting to be sashed. God bless black Friday - I managed to get the fabric for sashing at a reasonable price! It's a shame that I hate this next step, and the idea of sashing three quilts does not fill me with joy. I think I will put this off until the new year! I've also been working on my Splendid Sampler blocks (see my last post), and the #365quiltchallenge blocks - the  next border is just about ready to share! I completed my first two Farmers Wife blocks in a few months too. I've made good progress on the Modern Building Blocks QAL - lots of little blocks left to go on this one - this is the top half of that quilt

But the finishes!

So from the top: my Bee-utiful Mini quilt; Hugo's quilt; Goodnight Improv quilt; Jane Austen cushion; Orla's quilt; ugly Christmas jumper pincushion; Inside Addition quilt

And I finished the log cabin quilt. I love this photo taken at the beach!

I joined in with a quilt along to make the Get Cozy mini - I made a slight alteration, and I've ordered some more fabric to make this into a toddler quilt.

December will be different again - lots of Christmassy preparations and I go back to work after my maternity leave! We'll see what the final month of 2016 brings with it!

I hope your return to work goes smoothly x

P.S. Maybe you could add the sashing strips as a leader/ender project while sewing other blocks?
