I took in another quilt to longarm for a friend. I'll call this one the Draperies Quilt. She made it out of a pair of old drapes from her daughter's living room. It is a nice cotton. I think the quilt top turned out great. It's awesome to see my friend develop as a quilter.

More leaves have grown on my Pumpkins & the Beanstalk throw. (This is a design by Fig Tree & Co.). One more row to go!
The happy camper went to church camp last night. Hoping many memories and friends are made.

Yesterday I was putting some things away in the longarm room. I found a plastic project bag. It's Cabins By The Lake. I'm trying hard to NOT start a new project. This one has been on my list for a few years. I'm going to try to sew ONE cabin a week by scheduling it on my calendar.

I'm still working on getting my sewing groove back. It's all coming together! I finished the longarm quilting on my friend's patchwork quilt.
I used my Circle Lord giant board called Stars and Swirls. I omitted the stars and only used the swirls. I then re-rolled the quilt and filled it in with an allover stipple. I had to re-roll it because one of the guides would have hit on the finished quilt roll and not allow me to go to where I needed to quilt. I didn't want a little null spot at each point on the quilt. I really like how the texture turned out.
Here's the look of the back. It was a gently used sheet.
I made progress on my Pumpkins & the Beanstalk quilt this week. Pattern is by Fig Tree & Co. This is the center three rows. I don't know why I started in the center, but here I am.
I got my dashes caught up for the Full Stop QA with Anglea at SoScrappy and the RSC21. I also pulled out some of the purple scraps that I didn't put away yet. I'll have to see what needs done for purple before I get to the green.

I got caught up on the easy orange blocks for the Full Stop QA which is part of the RSC (Rainbow Scrap Challenge) at Angela's blog, here. Easy, peasy, lemon squeeze...
I'm still happy with the grey print background that I chose.
I'm linking up at Beth's blog, Love Laugh Quilt, for Monday Making.

I pulled out a WIP from 2018 that worked nicely with the colors of September AND October. The pattern is called Pumpkins & the Beanstalk by Fig Tree & Co.

I made a lot quilty progress this week. I didn't realize it until I started writing this post. I have been setting a little bit of time each morning for sewing.
Here's my completed Bricks & Stepping Stones quilt. This pattern is designed by Bonnie Hunter. It is available as a free pattern on her blog here. Make sure to check out her free patterns tab! Thank you, Bonnie, for all of the quilty goodness you share with us!
I finished putting together the blocks for my Veggie Patch quilt. This is a Katie Mae Quilts design. It was also one of my RSC (Rainbow Scrap Challenge) projects. I made it my OMG (one main goal) for October to finish this quilt. The back is already made. Woot woot!
I again got out one of my existing projects (Pumpkins & the Beanstalk by Fig Tree & Co.). Playing with this quilt felt like a fun thing to do for fall. I had some orange scraps left over from the RSC for September. This will nicely lead in to using lime green scraps for the RSC for October. BONUS!
I made the pumpkin centers.
