Just 3 for October......

Another month gone - not long now while before the end of the year is upon us again. So, just a quick recap of my Just 3 for September:
1. DUDQS -  the mini quilt top is all sewn together.
2.DS mini quilt swap - I have finished the mini quilt and it is ready to post off. I used a tutorial for the String Star from here.
3.Swoon quilt - block #6 sewn together. These are what I have done so far:
Now for my Just 3 for October:
1. I have just signed up for the Mouthy Stitches 2 swap and have to get a move on making a tote bag for my partner as it is due later this month. This is my mosaic:
2. Finish off the DUDQS  mini - I decided to try a paper pieced block from Leila at Where The Orchids Grow for the back. I just have to make and sew the binding on now.
3. Finish one (or two) more Swoon blocks - I started this quilt back in January and I really want to get it done by the end of the year.
