What I have been working on

I purchased a set of 12 block of the month pattern kit for Pathway to the Stars from a second hand store. They had all 12 blocks. I was so excited until I found out that I needed the setting kit. Well I contacted Joanne's fabric - that is who put out the BOM and they sent me the directions and and cutting instructions to finish it. Of course I had to find coordinating fabric. Below are the 12 finished blocks. I will say 3 of them were way out of my expertise and comfort zone. Also being from a pre-cut kit, some of the blocks are a little wonky because the cutting on the pieces were a little off.

I am now cutting and working on the setting pieces. Will post finished top when it is completed.

What I have been working on

I have been very busy this month. I had to make 2 baby quilts, by October 11th. The first one was for my nephew. He and his wife are having their first baby. The second is for a friend of the family's daughter. Here is a picture of the quilt for my Nephew. This was taken before it was quilted and the binding put on. I forgot to take a picture of it finished.

Here is the other one. Just got it finished with a little time to spare. I had done another one but part way though my husband looked at it and said it wasn't bright enough for a baby quilt.

Finished, wrapped and ready to go to their new homes.
