October UFO goal.....

I really want to get my ThimbleCreek Mystery (sewn earlier this year) done before the current Halloween mystery is finished--wish me luck! 

It's already loaded on the machine--that's a step in the right direction!

It's a very busy quilt and my advisers agreed that an edge to edge quilting design would be just fine. I decided to use this pantograph called Flirtatious. I've used it before, and I noticed that the open areas in the quilting design on the previous quilt puffed out in a distracting fashion. So...I have drawn curls at various places on a vinyl overlay with a dry erase marker. Hopefully that will prevent the puffs--if I remember to stitch in the curls!
I found a little time to stitch in between packing--I'm leaving tomorrow morning for Quilt Camp and will be back late in the week. Have a great weekend!!

Linking with A Lovely Year of Finishes HERE
