Lots of finishes in October, getting ready for November

I have been waiting too long for the blocks to finish my Ireland Quilt so I decided to do my own thing for a few of the blocks.  I will wait a little while longer to see what the last blocks look like and if they don't get posted soon then I will do another one to finish that quilt.

I left my heart in Ireland

Flowers and greenery of Ireland

I like the flying geese block
so I am calling this block
"Flying over the Emerald Isle"

I was able to finish the last 3 of the Morning Glory Designs BOM and now there are 20 completed blocks.

Block 18

Block 19

Block 20

I also took a picture of the first 20 blocks in this BOM.

I also made a Casserole Carrier.  I thought I might make a few for Christmas gifts so I made one for myself to try the pattern out.  I changed the pattern by putting binding around the pieces instead of flipping them inside out and used webbing for the handles instead of fabric.

the outside

the inside

I also made 4 placemats for a friend that I do yoga with twice a week.
I used a pattern from Atkinson Designs book I have.

She wanted burgundy and black so I combined
the burgundy with beige and used black
for the backing and binding.
