I’ve got a ton of sewing projects to get caught up on … so be warned there are a ton of pictures in this post!
First up: The Splendid Sampler
Although I’m still about six blocks behind I have completed quite a few blocks since my last blog post…
Bonus Flip Flops
And here are all my completed blocks up on the design wall (taken before I finished #41)
I’ve also finished and shipped my very first t-shirt quilt!
Next up – I had a friend ask if I would FMQ a baby blanket she made and of course I said YES! I just love an all over meander!
And as if I didn’t have enough going on, I jumped into a 12 days of Xmas in July QAL hosted by Sarah at Confessions of a Fabric Addict. You can still follow along with the steps on her blog – her directions were very clear and easy to follow and I especially love how she made sure to provide pressing instructions so all the seams nested – double win! I’ve pieced the back and it’s ready for basting – hoping to get that done today so I can start FMQ snowflakes all over it!!
I’ve also managed to stay current with the Sugar Block Club BOM hosted by Amy at Stitchery Dickory Dock. I’ve been using the same color palette that she uses in each of her blocks – not sure how it will all end up! Here’s the August block, I just love this navy fabric with clouds & rain… must.get.more!
And last but not least…I was itching for a finish so I pulled out an old UFO and got the top done this morning – whoop whoop! Don’t quite know what I’m going to do with this but it measures 54×48 so it would make a generous sized baby blanket…if someone is really into purple!
Ok, I think I’m all caught up now…whew!
Off to watch the Olympics (GO USA!) and maybe do a little more sewing…ttfn…
