September recap...........

I did it!  I finished this 33" wallhanging.  I did use the stripe that I showed yesterday as the binding.  It is the first finish since April.  

I didn't even make any quilt tops in September.  I started one.........

The only other finishes were the Dr. Seuss pillowcase and tote bag for my great-grandson shown on this post
Here is a closeup of the binding on the only part of the wallhanging where it contrasts.  It blends into all of the other colors touching the sides.

I worked on the Kaffe Fassett fabric catalog (page on my right sidebar) and got up to #100.  I have 53 to go and now the new fall 2016 fabrics will be shipping on Monday.  I haven't checked to see what the numbers are.

Our last free brush pick up is next Monday so I have been working on the last trimming and cutting volunteer trees for the year.  I'm happy with the amount of garden and yard work I did this summer, way more than I usually do.  I have a little more digging to do next week and then I think I'm done until spring.

It looks great/wonderful/fabulous! I like the binding to blend and hide itself. As long as you enjoyed yourself this month, the number of finishes is moot to me :)

The binding looks great. I don't know how you could get a better one!

Looks terrific with the binding! Glad you got gardening done and are happy with it.

Our city continues to pick up yard waste throughout the year. They have leaves to pick up. As far as I know, they never stop, but I would imagine that not many people do yardwork in the snow.

Your quilt just glows. It is beautiful. I've done a lot of yard work this year too. Just a few more changes more and I will be happy.

I am hoping that I am done with yard work until spring also. I think the cool nights and lack of rain may play in my favor for that.

I LOVE it.

We don't get winter garden breaks here.
