September is off to a great start!

I've spent a nice few days in the studio, playing and working and playing some more! I finished the ninth block-of-the-month for my night guild. It is supposed to be a school house block.
I think it needs something more. Perhaps a bell? Maybe I could make a flag pole and put a flag on it?
I don't know what I will do yet.

I finished Leafy Quilt!
It is my first log cabin quilt. I made it for my son. (He's up there on the right) I let him decide the layout. It looks great on his bed!

I worked on the October block-of-the-month:
Right after I did it, my ever-so-helpful-hubby asked me, "Didn't you mean for the darker colors to be in the bottom?" Sigh. I did. I messed up. I used photoshop to see if it would look better if I turned it upside down. The result is on the right, below:

I think I will keep it the way it is. I might add the jack-o-lantern face and vine spirals to it too; see my ideas on the left above.

That is the latest from the studio!
Happy Sewing Ya'll!!!

Your log cabin "Leafy Quilt" is fabulous! And the pumpkin is cute as is - no pumpkin in a patch looks the same. :-)
