Friday Finish - Blocks and Bows

There hasn't been a lot of sewing time this week, but I do have a little to share.

I finished the blocks for the September queen of my modern quilting bee.
I love it when the fabric comes already cut and all I have to do is sew it together.
Thanks, Max.

The  pattern for the blocks is from this tutorial at SewHappyGeek.

Call me a worker bee.

If you've been following along, you know that we have a wedding coming up.
Family will be arriving 3 weeks from today for my daughter's wedding.

Busy bee 
 is an understatement at this point, but we are still having fun.

I finished a million 20 bows for candelabras and pews.

Burlap ribbon is quite a bit heavier than any ribbon I've worked with, but with a million a few tries, they are finished.

I used a couple of You tube videos as inspiration:


Stay tuned, there is a lot going on here in the sticks...

My day in the 

is Monday and I will reveal my 
rush hour.

Carol is the cheerleader for the hop and she has the full schedule
