Finishing

It's been a summer of finishing up. This photo is of our Pastor at the end of August; she has been serving our congregation as an Interim Pastor and has finished her time with us. A few of us knew that she would need a proper send-off and of course that always requires a quilt to commemorate the occasion! Quiltkeemosabe just so happened to have this Lemoyne Trails top already finished and asked if I could quilt it and get it ready in time; not to worry!



I believe that she loved it! It was a joy to work on, too. I have this pattern and never had sewn it up but am inspired to make one of my own now. Actually, I have TWO of these patterns, if anyone reading would like to have the pattern and uses Deb Tucker's Studio 180 tools (this one requires the Rapid Fire Lemoyne and Square Squared tools) let me know in a comment and I will randomly select a winner next week and send it off to you.
Another project finished up: at church we have been collecting back to school supplies to stuff backpacks for disaster response. The supplies had been stashed until they could all be stretched out on long tables (our Women's Group meets at our LQS) and the backpacks could be filled assembly-line style.
Twenty six filled backpacks were prepared and sent to a local warehouse where they're undoubtedly headed now to Hurricane Dorian destroyed areas in need of immediate assistance. 
On the home front-- another scrappy tumbler quilt is completed. I finally realized, a few weeks ago, where that "missing" tumbler quilt had disappeared to; it was donated and I had completely forgotten about doing that. This is the third one that I have made and, after just receiving a gift of filled charm bins from Quiltkeemosabe who has been cleaning out, it seems that it certainly won't be my last one. 

Hexie Garden is completely done, too. It's been a fruitful season for finishes-- finishing strong and finishing well; hopefully the harvest from this season continues. I'm inspired and not slowing down yet; neither are the UFOs that I continue to discover!  

Life is Good!

Coming up next: where are these cute little houses going to end up?
Stay tuned...

What a busy -- and PRODUCTIVE -- summer you have had! I love it that the women's group meets at LQS.

Finishing feels SO good -- hope your "roll" continues! Lovely send off quilt for your former/interim pastor.

I love your pastor's quilt! I am hoping to go to a quilt show in the Spring and to take some Deb Tucker classes. I would love to have that pattern.

Looks like you have been busy doing good works, as always.
How handy is that, to be able to fit in a little shopping whenever your women's group meets. :)
Your cute little houses have me curious.

I have a Missouri Star tumbler rotary cutting template. I should dig it out and see if it is the same size as the self cut charm packs I make. Thanks for the nudge.

What a great lot of finishes, just wondering what size the tumbler blocks are and are they cut with the Go cutter?
