Still plodding along...

I am happy to be up to date on my Sugar Block Club.  These are my blocks for August, September and October.

I am more than a little sad that the year is coming to an end for this group, and I'm hoping and hoping that there will be an announcement and day for the 2015 Sugar Block Club...

Also trying to keep up with Leah Day's Building Blocks Quilt Along, but falling behind miserably...
These are some of the latest blocks.

Still have to quilt the baskets and piece all the stars. Leah and Josh have announced that there will be a new quilt along in this blog post. It will be called the Dancing Butterfly Quilt. I'm sad that I'm not in love with it as much as I was with the BBQA. Sort of like the 2014 Craftsy BOM. ( I could not wrap my mind around the loud colors, and I like bright!)  I do love the BOM method for quilting and seeing everyone else's work is really inspiring. I will most likely join up with the Dancing Butterfly Quilt, especially if its a quilt along.

But the MOST EXCITING THING is that Bonnie Hunter has announced the colors for her new Mystery Quilt - The Grand Illusion  !!!  WOOHOO!!!!

On the day she announced the colors,  after noticing that my stash was woefully under-pinked, and under-greened, for that matter, I went out to visit three LQS. Since then I've ordered from 3 other on-line sites. (maybe I shouldn't admit that- its probably ok - my husband will never read this.)
Any way that is my official new start for the month!!! YAY!!! I've been waiting all year for this...it's better than Christmas.

I didn't get the Lowes paint cards because I liked the colors of the pictures that she posted on her site so much. The way the bright pinks and greens go together make me feel so happy! The only trouble is that there's not a whole lot of variety within the color choices, so after my mail packages arrive, I will have to reassess.

Posting to Cat Patches October NewFO Linky Party!

Now if only I can get to the mail before my husband does...
