Let's start with what I should have worked on today and then...what I did :(!  I did select the fabrics that will make the Kourageous pansy block, but absolutely no sewing.  For the block I will need the background, two greens for leaves, three fabrics that appear in the drawing as purple, two fabrics that appear in the drawing as yellow, and last a fabric for the centers of the two flowers.  I've stacked them in the order I just laid out.  Tomorrow is another sewing day :)!

I did assemble the Sunshine Quilt Guild's September BOM.  The stem is a bit tricky.  I couldn't get the "sliver" to turn so Plan B came into affect.  I positioned it as it should be and then sewed it into the seam as it should finish and appliqued the tiny piece into place.  With the due date not till October 11 I'm way ahead.

Kolonial has my attention.  I want to get this project done.  I need to report something besides purchased on my Sunday Stash Report.  It does go together fast.  The first four rows are what I've got to assemble from all the pieces.  Row 1 requires three, Row 2 requires three, Row 3 requires seven, and finally Row 4 requires 2.  None of these rows are complete.  There are several more blocks to add to each row.  This quilt is a biggie finishing at 84.5 x 96.5 when finished.  There is a 2" Border 1 and a 5" Border  2 that is pieced included in the finished size.  The four blocks on the bottom two rows are what is done so far to continue Rows 1 and 2.

Thursday has me at Amidon's for the second of two workshops with Julanne on the Buggy Barn design Crazy Cats.  Ready to work on flowers and mice...eek!  Still out on a name for this project.  A little help from my friends please...

Hope you've been having fun in your sewing studio.  I just love to see what everyone else is working on.  Take some time to see other quilters work at Patchwork Times.
