TTMT #64-On September 15, 2021-A Finished Quilt and More

Today I talk about finishing my Attic Windows quilt binding and label. More fabric came home with me from my quilt guild. Also picked up some star blocks from a guild exchange several years ago and found the block I had made for the exchange. I have a T-shirt quilt cut out and ready to sew together. Then I took in 4 dresses to be altered for two different weddings in October. Plus I am prepping for being a vendor at the Niles Piecemakers Quilt Show October 15 & 16 in Niles, Michigan.
