Rose of Sharon and Sewing

The Rose of Sharon plants are blooming like crazy! 

Today was busy, I helped my dear mother-in-law make a simple twin-sized quilt top.  
It is a pretty floral fabric that we simply bordered with a contrasting fabric.
She learned how to use a rotary cutter to cut the border strips.
Tomorrow, we will pin the layers together and quilt it, then start the binding. 
I'm so proud of her, she is doing so well with her sewing!
We used the Accuquilt GO! to cut enough 4 1/2" squares to make a queen-sized quilt top, and she has over half of them sewn together now.

The smell of Fall is in the air, and I'm ready to start sewing again! Yeah!
