September PHD Update

Hi Quilting Friends,

September was a busy month, with some surprises.

One surprise was that I spent a week of workdays in downtown Houston, serving on a jury in the criminal courts. This was my first time to serve on a jury for a criminal case, although I’ve served several times in civil court. The experience was interesting, but I would prefer to not do it again any time soon. It’s difficult to be away from school and my students for such an extended amount of time.

I’ve switched my walking schedule from morning to evening, and have enjoyed hearing & seeing the pair of great horned owls that nest in our neighborhood. I’m a little obsessed with owls right now!

PHD in 2022 Project List

Project #1: Purple Orphan Block Project Bag

All done! This was my “One Monthly Goal” for September.

Project #12: Sticks and Stones Quilt

The quilting is partially finished, around all of the sashing strips, but I’m stuck on how I want to quilt the blocks. No updated photo today.

Project #13: Wedge Ruler Christmas Project
Rulers and foundations

Clearly not a “Christmas” project, although it might be a Christmas gift for someone. I’ve started making a wall hanging (or perhaps a table runner) with my wedge ruler tool. I posted my project in the “Queen of Gadgets” blog hop, and I like the modern vibe.

My “One Monthly Goal” for October is to continue working on this wedge ruler project. It needs another border or two, some quilting, and a binding.

New Projects

I’ve been working on a small project for the “Gremlins, Ghouls, and Goblins” blog hop, coming in October. No photo yet; come back on October 20 to see what I’m making!

Ongoing Projects

The #RSC2022 color for September was light blue, so I sifted through my scrappy blue fabric storage box and found some scraps to use. I made a Sawtooth Star block, and 10 Carolina Chain blocks.

  1. I really love that Pennant Quilt! How fun! Sticks & Stones is gorgeous. Looks like an all-over quilting needs to be done. Let the colors shine!
