September OMG

My September OMG was to finally decide on a quilt for me! My last count I have completed 343 quilts. Each and every one has been gifted or donated. When I discovered that surgery was necessary and imminent I started getting organized and that was when I confirmed that I had indeed donated the last 3 quilts that I was keeping for my use. I don’t regret donating them but would have enjoyed a bundle of quilted goodness to snuggle in to this past week and a half.

I decided I needed to make a quilt to keep and my September OMG was to decide on a pattern.

I had been watching for some QAL’s that I had decided to do before I found out about my surgery.

One of these is Melissa Corey, The Happy Quilter’s

Here is the design;

Isn’t it awesome?

The hard part was deciding on fabrics. Then I remembered I had these in my stash and had tried to use them for several different projects but kept changing my mind!

I do need to add some more fat quarters to the fabric pull and have to make the final choice for my background fabric, but these are the basics. I love paisley and the blue, teal, black, brown and gold in this palette makes my heart sing!

Once I actually get to start cutting fabric I will decide which fabrics are going where but I think I want to fussy cut the striped fabric for the ribbons, the blue with gold medallions will be the stars and possibly the leaves for the tulip blocks, the paisley is probably going to be the red and light blue tulips, and then that scrumptious teal color in the paisley will be used in the remaining tulips and leaves. I will play more to finalize the color placement when I can use coloured pencils and paper.

So there we go! Decision has been made and I am happy with the pattern and fabric pull. Now the question is; what do I do to keep myself occupied for the rest of September? 🥴

Thank you for stopping by to read my post. Have a wonderful weekend fondling fabric or doing anything that brings you joy! 🤔 Carol

Elm Street Quilts Sept OMG


Published by Carol Andrews

I have been fondling fabric and creating things with fabric and fiber for as long as I can remember. My children had homemade clothes, blankets, canning and quilts most of their lives. Now I create goodies to share! Hope you enjoy viewing them as much as I enjoy making them! When I am not creating with fiber or fabric I keep busy with Dear Heart, kids, grandkids, great grandkids.

  1. Hi Carol! Congrats on completing your September OMG. After so many quilts for so many others, it is about time that you make one for yourself. It is a shame you can’t be convalescing underneath one right now. I think the fussy cutting for the ribbons is a fabulous idea. And it sounds like you’re going to add a teal solid for some of the tulips? I think that’s a great addition as well. Keep up with those hexies and knitting – it will definitely help with atrophy for sure. {{Hugs}} I’m sending you prayers and healing vibes and hope that the recovery goes quickly and smoothly. ~smile~ Roseanne

      1. Carol! That’s great! Really – I envisioned you having to stay in that recliner chair all the time so yippee. I think you’re going to rock this whole recovery timeline on its butt.


  2. The quilt pattern you chose is lovely! But OMG, those fabrics are fabulous!!! Do you mind sharing where you got them? Speedy recovery on your surgery.
