A Day Late…

I was so captivated with the French Open Men’s Final yesterday, I completely forgot about posting to my blog! Spoiler Alert: If you haven’t heard who won yet…don’t read any further!

Rafael Nadal won his record breaking 14th French Open title yesterday… he broke his own record! Congrats Rafa!! 😀


I’m starting a couple of new quilt projects, I’m hoping that will help me get back into the routine of spending at least a little time every day in my sewing room. I’ve joined a couple of QAL’s:

Summer Book Club QAL from Kate Basti is the first one, it started this week. I didn’t participate last year but I happened upon the notice this year and thought it would help me get back on track. Plus, those Tall Tales Blocks are just so cute!!

Here’s my fabric pull, right now I’m planning to make two book covers from each of these fabrics then I’ll see how big I want the quilt and decide if I need to make more

Here are the first two books, one still in progress. I’m using Kona White for the background.

The second QAL “Positivity 2022” gets kicked off next week but this week is about fabric selection. I’ve decided to use two layer cakes I’ve had sitting around for far too long!

And lastly, I got the Pink Houses quilt basted…now I just need to get to quilting on it! I think I’m going to do organic wavy vertical lines…but I’m not 100% sold on the idea.


That’s about all for now, take care!!

    1. I’m not sure if I’ll keep up with the book club qal… making those books is pretty tedious :-p I’ve got 12 so far and I’m already thinking how I can make a baby size quilt out of them and call it done!
