Friday Night Sew...Out

Instead of staying home and sewing, last night I met with the lovely ladies of the DC Modern Quilt Guild.  It was so nice to spend the evening chatting and sewing!  The best part is I was able to finish my top for the quilt I'm donating for 100 Quilts for Kids.

Needless to say when I pulled the fabrics for this quilt, I was definitely ready for fall!  I started with the owl, apple and flower fabrics and just started pulling oranges, yellows and greens from my stash.  As with all of my projects it's not perfect, but I love it!  During naptime I'm going to piece the back with some leftovers from the front, and IF I have time I'll do some really simple stippling.  I'm hoping to have this finished really soon.

It's not too late to make a quilt to donate.  If you haven't already, check out the list of prizes on Katie's blog.  There are some really great sponsors this year!

I'm off to go spend some time with the boys.  Hope everyone enjoys the weekend!  It's cool and rainy here today.  It might be the perfect time to decorate for Halloween...

Edited:  Quilt top made using this tutorial.
