Blogger seems to have changed the order they upload photos but I’m not going to bother to rearrange them.
First, from our Heartstrings Sew-in yesterday – we mainly worked on making blocks and assembling tops but after I said I hadn’t understood instructions for creating pillowcases with no exposed seams, we had a lesson thanks to Ethel. I only sewed the cuff on the one I was holding before going back to assembling my green blocks but Sheree finished sewing it.

Here’s a neat gadget I finally broke down and bought – a *spotlight* for my sewing machine. It’s pricey at almost $50 but boy does it help my aging eyes see better.
We took a field trip yesterday to a local quilt shop in Rochester, MN where among other purchases, I replenished my background stash with these fat quarters. Finally, I can check completing this top off my to do list for October – I assembled it yesterday at the sew-in. Today, I’ve managed to get the binding made and machine stitched to my Boxed Squares – I’ll work on stitching that down later.
