Welcome! Tish and I go a ways back... to a certain New Quilt Bloggers Blog Hop 2015, during which we further bonded over books and pibbles. We've gotten up to all kinds of quilty fun over the past 3.5 years, some of it finished, some not. One of our sew-together projects that we both have not finished is the Sewcial Bee Sampler Quilt Along, though she is further along now than I am. Anja joined us, and since she has been in India, I haven't bothered to even try to catch up with Tish...Anja's my excuse ha! Let's take a look at what has been occupying 99% of my quilting time this week...
First of all, here is the ongoing progress on my 150 Canadian Women Quilt Along project. This was a quilt along run by Kat of Next Step Quilt Designs. It was three 6" blocks per week for something like nine months. I've been making my 1" finished sashing strips and cornerstones, and sewing the blocks into rows mostly as leader/enders.
I finished a knitting project for which I've had the yarn for about six months.
Finally I got the top done for the Island Batik Stars Challenge which yes, was September's challenge. More on what happened in the finish post which will be the next post, as all I have left is to sew on the binding. Here is the flimsy, finished this past Monday, hanging in the mystery tree:

Tish always highlights a couple of UFOs, so here are two from #33:

Anyhow this is Janice's bee block, made by Sue. I love that Janice, Color Creating and Quilting (that link will take you directly to her post where you can see all the blocks on her design wall!), chose my block, and I love that Sue made a second one for her because Kate, Smiles from Kate, is out of action for a while (send hugs).
Okay, let's see what projects you've moved along or finished up this week! Link up below. The linky will be open until midnight Tuesday, October 16.
