October here we come...

I can't believe August is over but here we go; can we slow Sept down.
I am so looking forward to the retreat but there is so much to do before then.
Birthday Blocks to sew together, I don't even know where to start. Mystery quilts to finish; I finally got border on but I would like to actually quilt it and I just realized I have never quilted the sample of the mystery that was completed for last year.
I have to finish some samples for some classes I am teaching before i come back to Alberta as well as classes I will have as soon as I get back.
If anyone has any spare time please send it west.

Mystery Quilt

Digging through UFO's and found Mystery Quilt from last years retreat that I hadn't finished. It was the sample I was trying to make along with everyone else. Along with distractions and time factors mine got put away with a large portion of each step done. After looking at pieces and instructions for quite awhile I finally figured out what needed to be done and have completed the top. I am just going to add a border and then quilt. Will post a picture when its done.
