Forward Progress

 Last Sunday I put together these crumb blocks with a simple navy sashing.  I think I will add an outer border of the same fabric and then maybe some more crumbs.
Postage Stamp blocks were next on the list.  These were all leftover from finished quilts of long ago.  It is amazing that as many different fabrics as there are in these blocks, I still ended up with the same fabric next to each other repeatedly.  
 As part of my continuing quest to clear out orphans and extras, I quilted up this little table topper made from pinwheels of waste triangles.
 Then there is the continuing slow and steady binding progress.  I think this is number three of the hurricane finish parade.  These orange peels were appliquéd and then hand quilted.  After the binding backlog is taken care of, I'll need a new hand quilting project to work on.
Because it is Sunday, I'm going to link up with Oh Scrap! and Slow Stitching Sunday.

love your postage stamp quilt - have done several of those other the years with 1.5 inch blocks. And a quilt like that still doesn't use up all the piece!

So many projects! Love the little table topper. You sure have had a very productive September. Good luck picking the new hand work project - there are so many fun ones out there to select from.

Wow, love the crumb quilt. A solid color sashing is a great idea. Have a lovely Sunday stitching.
Cheers,

Pretty quilts - I especially love the orange peel. I have a trip around the world quilt made with 1 inch finished squares that my husband's great aunt made many years ago. She gave the top to his mother who never did anything with it. She gave it to me and I did some repairs and my mother hand quilted it. Then I added the binding. I just love this quilt. To think his great aunt hand cut all these blocks and hand pieced it. It is a queen size quilt!

So is our color for October pink? I saw that on one of the ladies blocks, but have not seen you confirm it yet :)

You are making such great progress on so many of your quilts! The navy sashing was a great choice for your crumb quilt. Thanks for sharing with Oh Scrap!

So many beautiful scrappy projects!
The postage stamp quilt reminds me of my favourite saying... "random does not mean equally spaced"!
Enjoy your hand stitching today!

So glad I'm not the only one with a binding backlog! I do part of it by hand, I currently have 9 quilts waiting for the hand stitching! Good luck on yours!

You have been busy! Love the crumb block top. Wish I could use up more scraps and orphan blocks than I create.

You've been really productive this last month. I can't pick a favorite from these you've posted. I really like the postage stamp quilt and the orange peel quilt. Happy stitching this weekend.
