    New Quilting Bee, September, 2017

    Happy Labor Day weekend all. Can you believe it's September? Seems this year has just flown by..

    Here are the blocks for September, hope you enjoy them. There are 10 1/2" unfinished blocks. Be sure to post pictures when you do them, always like eye-candy. Have any of you decided on a layout yet? Ideas on finishing? Post your ideas, I'm sure everyone would like to enjoy your ideas. I know a lot are busy, but do hope your blocks don't end up being UFO's. Well have fun with these blocks, looking forward to seeing your choices.

    Thanks for the new blocks! I really like them! Of course, I think that with all of the selections.

    JustJan: Pretty block.

    Since I am making my blocks into baby quilt tops as soon as I have enough of them for the top I am working on, mine won't be UFO's unless I decide to try some FMQ on them. Lol!

    Very pretty Jan. I like your sense for colors. It is amazing to me how you can use just the cremes and reds to make this block so stunning. Very nice!

    What fun blocks! These look interesting and challenging for me. I know I will get them done before the end of the month, but right now I have another top I am working on.

    I have laid my blocks out a couple of times and the two that have always bothered me color-wise just do not work. I will probably re-do those when I go to make the top. I think I have about a dozen blocks made, that is exciting for a new quilter:-)

    I haven't thought about my layout yet. On point would be nice but I've never actually completed a quilt that was on point. I love the two choices for this month. We're on the way to see my mom and celebrate my birthday this weekend so I'll have to begin next weekend hopefully. Have fun everyone. I can't wait to see everyone's blocks!

    I really love the look of blocks on point. My second quilt that I made was Storm at Sea and I did it on point. I am planning this one to go on point as well. This might turn out to be an actual quilt. The other 3 quilts I have made have all been wall hangings. Hmm, maybe I can use a couple of the blocks I don't really like to fill in the goofy little areas that happen on point.

    Yep, as I said, its from another set of blocks. In fact, its already in this quilt top, which is getting sandwiched tomorrow. I changed the corners to darker green before I set this top together.

    Here is another quilt that features Goshen Star. I just put the binding on it. I had a panel with six Kaleidoscope blocks. I pieced/added 3 blue and 3 red GS blocks for this quilt. I'm trying to tame my stack of UFO's. Have a few other quilts to finish before I make my September blocks. Happy Labor Day Weekend everybody.

    I've been looking for fun layouts. I like some of these modern versions on this webpage: http://www.mccallsquilting.com/blogs...ampler-quilts/ I'm thinking about the 3rd layout.

    I've checked this book out of the library. She has some fresh takes on sampler layouts that would be fun to try out for baby quilts or other small project before going big!

    Janet, Your quilt with the black background is stunning - really lovely. I know from weaving that black can really make colors pop so it is so wonderful to see the same thing in quilting. Thanks for the picture.

    Kristi - Thanks for the link. As a new quilter I am always looking for ideas.

    After being gone for a week, I found these September blocks to be just the ticket for an enjoyable Sunday afternoon.
