Goodbye September...

I have been sitting here trying to think where September went. I know I had my family here for the first half, school started, we celebrated our anniversary... so many things! And it's over just like that *snap*
Well, my husband was out of town this weekend, and I got quite a few things done. I was able to get the top pieced on my pumpkin quilt.

Here is a closeup of the leaves:

I now need to add the border to it, which has a lot of pieces, so that is a whole lot more work :) Which I am looking forward to!

Then I finished the rest of my birthday blocks. I don't think I'll do this exchange again next year. It is quite a lot of work to make 17 other blocks throughout the year. It kind of wore me out. I liked making them for the experience I suppose, but I am happy they are done :P So here are my final 4!

And go me! It is the last day of September and I finished my September Bent Creek Snapper this morning :D I want to add some sort of verse to the top of this like "for every season there is a purpose under heaven...." or something. Anybody have some good seasonal quotes/sayings/scriptures that come to mind? I'd love to get your ideas!

Your blocks are beautiful - but 17 in a year. That takes your quilts from joy to work! Your work is amazing and I am sure each person is very appreciative of the blocks you have done.

How's this?

September days are here,
With summer’s best of weather
And autumn’s best of cheer.

This year, September certainly set records for FLYING by!!!

Oh, what a pumpkin quilt... Pumpkins are so pretty and once again, you're really talented in quilting! Your blocks are really pretty too, but it must be a lot of work. Stitching looks great too.
