Works in Progress Wednesday #12

The evenings are getting cooler. One munchkin started school on Monday, another starts today, the kids' activities are starting to ramp up...yes, Fall is definitely in the air. It's good to be back...and reunited with my sewing machine!

New Projects: Holding fast on no new projects. Well, no cutting yet. I do have a design worked out for the Castle Peeps fabric I bought while on vacation. Am I getting by on a technicality? ;) 

Completed Projects: Nada

Current Projects:
Bottled Rainbows (2) - We are done the mosaics! Woo hoo! Each boy picked the backings for their squares. Unfortunately, I mixed two them up and free motion quilted them before we realized they were wrong. Grrrr! The boys didn't seem to mind though and, in fact, they even informed me that it didn't really matter because they were planning to share the quilts. That should be interesting. Anyways, I've free motion quilted 12 of the 32 squares. I'm trying to do a different qulting pattern for each square.
