I did DrEAMi! again. It is absolutely glorious just seeing something, and diving in to making it, ignoring all the 'must-do's' isn't it? With all my Island Batik and Benartex duties, and the lilacs quilt that was in McCall's this summer, I haven't been able to DrEAMi as much the past couple of years. However, here are three from this past month!
First up, I had a request from Brady to make him a placemat, but not to match the grey and aqua ones his mum requested I make, no. He wanted red and blue. He even drew a diagram for me to follow, "If it's not too hard, Nana." He's so thoughtful, just unreal for his age, but he always has been this way. Because I was working like crazy on his football quilt while he was here, I didn't get to his placemat until after they left, but it was first on the drop everything and get 'er made list!
Two more occurred in short order, typical Drop Everything and Make it from start to finish, don't even breathe!
My final DrEAMi is not exactly a true DrEAMi, more of an ongoing diversion from the regular programming. It's the kind where you do just have to drop everything....and make this first block or two or three of a quilt, and you know you're going to continue making the quilt, but you have to spread it out over a few days or a week or two... because it's such a humongous DrEAMi... And it was totally unplanned.
Not on the FAL List.
Not on the Want to Make List.
Not on the Gifts for People List.
Yep. That kind. Here's mine. As I posted on Instagram when I went kinda cray-cray one day and succumbed to making a couple blocks with some scraps....
Pumpkin Quilt Along! Party of One!
Give thanks table runner.
Last month we had this beauty from Dione at Clever Chameleon:
Allison at New Every MorningPatchwork and Quilting just had to drop everything and make this:
Well what grabbed your attention in October? Link up below. I'll leave the party open until Friday night. And now I'm off to bed. I'll leave you with one more photo of this sweet little girl. Who's not really allowed on the couch...but hey grandparents get to spoil their grandkids and their granddogs!
