October - 1/3 of the Way There!

October Update...
The Quilt top is 1/3 of the way completed. Five, count them, five rows finished. In the above photo, the quilt is on our king size bed. You can see that it stretches from side to side, the size will be perfect. Also visible is the king size duvet cover that I made in September. Weren't really happy with anything in the stores, so just whipped this one up. My poor old sewing machine hasn't been used much in the last few years, so it is in need of maintainence. The wonderful folks at Quiltology in Chicago have sewing machines and workspace that you can rent, at a bargain price. Anyway, couldn't have done it without them. (And of course Joe who discovered that they rented machines)
This month the quilt will be traveling to some exotic locals, tune in the beginning of November... you won't be sorry. 'til then.
