It is all about Kloggs right now.  This won't be a UFO finish this month sadly.  There just haven't been enough sewing days for me.  This is a King size finish if I didn't mention already.

The next pieces (the outside pieces pictured above) are ready for trimming.  I am referring to the units at the bottom with the square touching.  The other units are more of the middle that won't fit on my design wall.

The last to be sewn is the outside border.  It has some clever units that continue the design from the center of the quilt.  This will be my project through the weekend.  Likely this will be a finish on Sunday.  Wish me luck!

I have been doing a bit of sewing this week.  There is a finish to share, a possibility for a bimonthly opportunity quilt, and Kloggs.

The finish is a promised Halloween quilt for the Buh Boys.  My nephew's sons, yep there last name is Buh that is pronounced Boo, will get this quilt that I personalized in part to fill up some of the panel's candy corn background.  The two boys are young with the oldest just starting first grade this year.  They shared a quilt I sent them last year; now they will be able to have one of their own.  Kerry will be quilting it this week with the pattern Ghostly in white thread.

I'll have the binding ready when Kerry is done.  The quilting should give it an eerie feel as the ghosts fly around on all the different colors.  I just love using stripes on the diagonal for bindings.  

Next up is a possibility for Sunshine's November/December Bimonthly Opportunity Quilt.  Kerry and I are using up our SWAP projects in this quilt if we decide to go forward.  It is a Bonnie Hunter design called Charlotte's Basket from her String Fling book.

Kloggs is the big project I am spending my time on.  While I assemble the blocks for the second border.  The project has three borders with the last one being dark blacks.  As I gaze at my design wall I wonder about the fabric choice for the inner border.  Dark blacks are suggestion from pattern that I will probably stick with.

So for my fabric stats this week a reduction in my stash =^.^=

Used this week:  3.5 yards
Used YTD:  149.75 yards
Purchased this week:  0 yards
Purchased YTD:  100.5 yards
Net used in 2016:  49 yards

We've welcomed in Fall this week.  The talk is that with Fall it is quilting time!  I can't wait to get back into the swing of sewing.  My quilting time has been pretty limited lately with everything else that has been going on.  That my friends is changing today...

Kalvert Kliffs
72" x 84"
Kalvert Kliffs was finished during the week.  The quilting on this one is lovely.  Kerry never disappoints me.  The quilting design is called Jovial Feathers and a maple color thread was used.  It reminds me of Fall so I am happy to have this up in my foyer right now.  Did you bring out your Fall themed quilts?  I have several of mine up which brings a smile to my face.
Kloggs In Work
102" x 120"
There has been no change this past week to my stash design wall continues to hold Kloggs.  I have most of the piecing done so it shouldn't take much time to finish.

First though, I am putting together a cute Halloween quilt for my nephew's sons Luke and Logan.  Last year they shared a Halloween quilt; this year they will both have one of their own.
