OMG for October

With my back out for the past two weeks, I find I can't sit for long, but my chair in my sewing room (only wood) seems to not hurt my back where my couch does....  Go figure???....

So I have been doing some sewing and some painting (can't show the painting - it's a Christmas gift), and it's been coming along in 1/2 hour stints with an hour break in between or even some napping.  So I think I can do it, can make a goal happen.  Here's what my monthly goal looked like at the start of October.  It's my own design, from a painting I did about forth months ago.  A lot of white space there.  The quilt is about five feet by four feet (or approximately).  So  here's the list of things to do for this one:
  • stitch on all the black.
  • attach some 2 1/2 inch squares around one corner to make it more balance.
  • quilt all that white space.
  • Bind
  • Put up in the bedroom.
I'm looking to do it for my bedroom, to cut down on the echo in my loft.  The other side above the kitchen is a modern design left from the previous owner in black and white.  So I think the two will really work well together.  I'm very happy with the thought of the two of them together.  See below for a picture of the artwork in the kitchen.  What do you think?  Give me a reply.
