Wednesday Wait Loss 40 and an Island Batik Challenge Update

Hi and welcome to Wednesday Wait Loss! I'm still working on my October Island Batik Challenge. Ugh. This one is taking so long. But I am happy with the result!

October's challenge is Borders and Bindings, and I use can see, I took that challenge to heart. I'm almost done with the top--just want to add a cat applique in the upper right corner (right now I've got a photo standing in for the general idea). I'm musing ideas for the binding finish, but if you've got any, chime in!

Now that you know what I've been doing, let's see what you're up to! First, it's time for our weekly feature.

There were so many great link ups last week, many from first time visitors. If you didn't visit everyone last week, you should! Click here to see last week's linkups.

This week, I want to feature several fellow Island Batik Ambassadors, and their amazing October Borders and Bindings challenge quilts! First up is Cheryl @ Desert Bloom Quilting. Cheryl's quilt features a Leah Day printed panel. Love that outer border! Visit Cheryl's blog to see more photos of this awesome quilt!

Next is Terri @ Meanderings Along Lizard Creek, who turned a wonderful house block into an adorable mini-quilt. You have to visit Shelly's blog to read more about this special quilt.

Laura @ Slice of Pi Quilts shared her October challenge quilt a few weeks ago, but I thought I'd share it too because it's amazing. Laura explains how she made her lattice border in her post so be sure to visit her blog to learn more!

Sharon @ Yellow Cat Quilt Designs shared a pumpkin quilt last week, but I thought I'd share her Island Batik October challenge quilt too. I love how cute this one is!

Congratulations my fellow Island Batik Ambassadors! Here's an "I Was Featured" button for your blog. Thank you so much for sharing your October challenge quilts with us. I hope to have mine done soon to share with you!
