September Sewing-Day 3

I am using National Sewing Month as my excuse to sew every day this month.
I really like having my little list posted on Mondays.

On Monday, I set up tables on the deck and basted my hexi quilt.
I quickly basted the section that was in the sun and covered it up.
By the time I was finished, the whole quilt was shaded.

Then I started quilting until it was time for 2 1/2 year old Corbin to spend the afternoon. 
After he went home, I collapsed in the chair for the rest of the night.
I picked up the hexi box but all I did was open and close it.

After a very good night of sleep, 
Tuesday I quilted and quilted until it was done.
Added the binding and label, then settled down to stitch them down.
By the end of the day, 
I had a finished quilt. 
UFO Parade quilt 1 is marked off the list!
Simple somewhat straight line quilting in the ditch.

This morning I finished up my 9 patch wall hanging #2.
Wednesday is Binding Friends (sewing group) day and 
we laid out my Smith Mountain Morning blocks.
Darn me, I forgot to take a picture.
They are all pinned into rows but I'm not sure when I'll start sewing them.

I can't wait to see what tomorrow brings,

Yea fro sewing every day in September. I'll be quilting or sewing all the days forward except Sunday. The two Baby quilts I made at the Fair have a deadline so they jumped to the start of the Que. Just some moon and stars quilting on it. All 10' of the frame is full.
