Front Porch

Time for another reveal.

I finished the bird block and sewed it to the watermelon block.

Then I made the basket and stars strip....

...and attached it to the bird house block.

Now I have a completed bottom third of the quilt finished.

The photo looks wonky because my husband was holding it at the bird house.  It was too big to put on my design wall.  I'm linking up with Lori at Humble Quilts.

I finally finished my Traditional Gwennie Round Robin.  I so loved all the quilts and admired the final borders.  I don't mind saying the theme "Something Fishy" threw me for a loop.  An idea came to me right away for my Modern Gwennie.  But when it came to my Traditional Gweenie I was in the weeds.

I loved the "Clam Shell" idea that I saw on many quilts.  But didn't have time to applique them.  Suddenly and idea struck....   A while back I had cut out some Drunkard's Path blocks all in different shades of blue.  Sewn together in the right way they looked like Clam Shells.

Here is the result.  I like it more than I thought.  The border still lets the eye focus on the center of the quilt.  

Here is my Modern Gwennie.  I already posted a photo of it.

Again many thanks to Lori for setting up this wonderful sew along and letting me apart of the Fab Five design team.

While I had my thinking cap on I finished a WIP I had started a while ago.  It used up all the 9 patch blocks I received from a swap that Barb hosted a while back.

Now I just have to sandwich it and machine quilt it and I will have a finish.  It's been a while.

Thanks for stopping by.  I hope you are all enjoying the fall weather.  I hope our friends along the Atlantic Coast are safe and dry and have had minimal damage.

Hugs, Cathy

Gwennie Finale

Well sort of....

This is my modern Gwennie Medallion quilt.  This is the only thing that I worked on during the month of September.  I was unable to work on my Traditional quilt due to the eye problems I had for the last 4 weeks.  I am finally pain free..woo hoo.  So I'm hoping to get to it this month.

This has been such a wonderful experience.  I want to thank Lori for asking me to be apart of this Sew Along.  I had fun picking out the theme for round 3.
I hope everyone else enjoyed the Sew Along.

Thanks for stopping by.

Hugs, Cathy
