Weekly update: in the studio -- a flimsy, OMG achieved, and a start-and-finish

I listened to The Help while driving to and from Iowa.  (I don't know why I didn't read it when it was published a decade ago.)   The story and the narration were so good that "I have to finish this!" was my excuse to spend a lot of time in my studio this week.

I made 42 slab blocks and assembled them.
The scrap slabs are 6-1/2 x 9-1/2 and the gray strips are 2-1/2 x 9-1/2.

I achieved both parts of my September One Monthly Goal and will add this post to the link up.

(a)  Play Your Song, my donation to the Lake County Symphony Orchestra gala in October

(b)  Ten book bags for the Nepal school project. The photo shows the ten I made in August as well as the ten I made this month.  Twenty bags to go!

This pumpkin wall hanging is for the Zion Woman's Club bunco party at the end of October.  I used a pattern from Quiltmaker (Sept/Oct 2005).

Lots of neat stuff happening in your studio. I love the orchestra quilt and hope it generates a big bid.

Kat Scribner said...

The slab quilt looks so great, Nann.

Shasta Matova said...

That book is a good one, and is indeed a great excuse to spend time in the studio.

Ellie said...

I love The Help! The slab quilt is a winner! I have only made smaller slab quilts but i want to try one like this. You have been very productive with your tote bags!

Ann said...

The book was much more nuanced than the movie. I'm glad yo finally listened to it especially since it helped you get a quilt top done.

Susan said...

All wonderful works. I will probably do a slab quilt eventually, when vortex is finished. Always have to have something to use up those final small pieces! I love the music quilt, though. That is a real beauty.

Lots of lovely projects happening in your sewing room. Cute pumpkin wallhanging.

Patty said...

Very nice! Thanks for linking up with Elm Street Quilts One Monthly Goal and congrats on your finish.

Bonnie said...

That is one cute pumpkin wall hanging? Small table runner? And congrats on succeeding in the Sept OMG. I’m hoping to get back into OMG starting with October. But I’ll have to figure out what to do. Happy quilting.

Kate said...

You've been busy. Congrats on all the lovely finishes and one making your OMG.

Myra McFarland said...

You have been a busy, busy quilter. Your pumpkins are adorable.
