A Quilting Life Favorites September 2023

It’s always so much fun to see the most-read posts from the month (I know I say this every time I do my monthly review post, but it’s true)! This month the following posts made the top 5. Be sure to visit them if you missed any of these earlier in the month:

- Fabric Organization: Precut Storage
- Fall Quilt Decor Part 2
Made in September
This month I finished all of the blocks for my Quilting Life Block of the Month. I was also able to get the entire quilt top pieced, quilted (by my friend Marion), and bound. I absolutely love how my quilt turned out! Sneak peeks coming soon!
I also worked on quite a few smaller projects with our Bountiful Blooms fabrics. It’s been so much fun to sew with this collection as the days have turned cooler. I made table runners and toppers and also started a king-sized quilt with these fabrics (more on that soon)!
Five Things I’m Loving Right Now
Here are some of the things I’m loving right now:
- The almost “fallish” weather! It’s been lovely in the mornings (and evenings), and our daytime temperatures are also getting close to wonderful once again. I do love the fall here.
- I’ve been sorting and organizing things into notebooks, and I absolutely love the quality and the color of these binders.
- I’m also really loving the book Build the Life You Want by Arthur Brooks. I read a lot of books in this category and really feel like this one is top-notch with lots of helpful and applicable ideas and information.
- This Better than Takeout Kung Pao Chicken–trust me that you’ll want to make this on repeat!
- This podcast (part 1 of a multi-part series) on pushing back the “noise” in our lives.
