I Can Breath Again


I sincerely appreciate all of your kind words and thoughts during the family's bit of turbulance.  Daughter did well and even back to work.  Son is still recovering - hard as nails - and hoping Dr will release him for work.


Not having time to think about sewing for a bit, I did slowly cut into some new fabrics for a NewFO.  A layer cake of Whindham 'Sienna' and some Moda 'Morris Apprentice' to make this pattern Morris Modernized



And then I started to get the itch to stitch!!!!  The next block of Quilt Doodle Design's QAL............


Quilted and bound the 'Love' mini - fabric line is 'Hot for Chocolate' so I quilted the word chocolate withing the meandering and used brown buttons in the 'O's - this is for my quilt guild summer challenge - your interpretation of chocolate.


The mini 'Tid Bits' Konda's 'Simply Charming-Minis' done in some scrap charms of Lario.


The next five letters in the ABC QAL over at Blossom Heart Quilts.


Blocks with the Moda 'Size Matters' - even if you don't need to start another quilt, save these patterns as each block is charted for different sizes which could handy in the future (button is on the side bar).  Of course, I have to make the smaller size - 6.5" blocks.  And I am finally using that pile of older line of Connecting Thread's  'Symphany in Blue'.

I sent a quilt off to one of my local longarmers and it's back for binding. Still playing with borders on the Country Charmer - twice I added them, and twice I took them off - maybe a shopping trip for something new. And I managed to get my Star Surround quilted and bound, but that's for another day.

Enjoy your weekend -
Sewingly Yours,
Sharon
