It is finished and I am very pleased!
 I am a little short of the background fabric to put on the top and bottom rows, but I'll remedy that problem today with a visit to TOWQS.
At this time, I don't think I'll add an outer border.
I will just bind it in the navy stripe.
Instructions for this setting will be posted by this weekend.
Also, look for Doreen to post her instructions for the scrappy setting she is using.
And yes, I will hand quilt this puppy.

Made another little pincushion this week.
It went to a friend who loves pumpkins for her birthday.
I am addicted to this crazy wool! 

A few projects to put the final touches to and then back to my Kim Diehl applique quilt.
I started  'Sparklers' from Summer Gatherings and that will be my next machine piecing project to complete.
These are the sawtooth stars I have pieced already. It will be a throw size quilt when finished. 

Don't forget to send me pictures of your finished SAL quilts, or even just your blocks as you finish them, and I will keep everyone updated.  I really enjoyed this, loved the positive feedback and will definitely do something similiar in the future. 

Hopefully, I will print my Quilt Piecing 101 manual this weekend. 
If you are interested in a copy, please let me know.
Cost will be $18.95, plus shipping.
Proceeds will go to my daughter, the graphic designer of the project, to help fund her education in Radiography.


  1. Three "cute" little pumpkins stitched so pretty on a pincushion and watching for "goblins" to appear and scare them away----- but, the "bumble bee" in the corner surprised the "goblins" and "scared" them away!!!!!

    Your pincushion is darling, thanks for sharing Cheryl!
