Boutique Items and a BOM block done

For the last two years, our guild has had a fall boutique to raise money for programs and workshops.  So since the idea of national teachers coming to teach, I always like to donate items for the guild.  I started in earnest this weekend to work on some items for this years' boutique.  We are also having a section for consignment items (where 15% of the sale goes to the guild).  Here are a few boutique items.
Quilt as you go table runner using left over strips from quilt I made last year.


Bought these 2 panel kits 1/2 off at our local quilt store.

Another quilt as you go runner from left over strips.


I'm also going to put this wool table runner in the consignment section.  I have been working on this each time I go visit my dad.  

And then I finished the Fat Quarter Shops Block of the Month for July.  (Remember, I'm making 2 blocks each month so I'll have 2 quilts at the end.  One to donate to next years guild.)
I also put together a Halloween quilt using the left over blocks from the last Bonnie Hunter mystery quilt.  I won't show that until I quilt it.
Thanks for looking.  I have a lot more to make.  I have some little pouches and bags I want to make and maybe another stuffed doxie.

A finish and BOM block done

I decided to work on my Pat Sloan's Globetrotting block 7 since I didn't want to start another project last night.
Last month I noticed that mine was looking really blue so I thought I'd make this months block redder.

And then I finished a very special project that I can't show the whole thing because it's a surprise gift for someone.  But here's the center.  The whole quilt it quilted and bound - just needs a label.

I tried to take better pictures so I can show all the quilting I did, but it just wasn't going to show.

I started working on my Farmer's Wife quilt today.  I'm working on the border now as the center is all done.  This will take me a while though.  I can't wait to see it finished.

We had a very quiet 4th of July.  We have 3 dogs, one of which is very afraid of fireworks.  So we gave him a Benedryl and hugged him all night while he just shook.  And I'm dealing with another very naughty little girl dog who thinks peeing on my bed is an acceptable place.  She's done it twice this past week.  Never before so I'm not sure if it's the fireworks that are scaring her and that's why she's doing it.  The neighbors have been making noise all week.  We'll see when all this is over.  I'm going to not make the bed until bedtime so she won't do it again.  The joys of pet ownership.

Thanks for looking.
