NewFO & August Ends




I love that Barbara @ CatPatches gives us permission to start something NEW with no pressure to finish, just start something.  It really helps to keep the FUN in quilting.


My official NewFO was for the Doll Quilt Swap Group and the theme was Mellow Yellow.  My partner and I agreed on staying on theme and she mentioned she likes bright and modern.  This is a free pattern called  Swirly Twirly Dresden and can be found HERE.


I just love this fabric and wish I had gotten more.  Perfect for the back and binding and little dolly's dress.

 Never too hot to Stitch!


I finally got to finishing up my Something Old.  This was a mystery offered by my LQS (who recently relocated-could cry) on Super Bowl Sunday.  To me it is too large for a wallhanging, but not big enough for a quilt.  Perfect for a table cloth with those grapes and wine glasses?


My Something New was the baby quilt for the much anticipated granddaughter.  September 22 can't come soon enough!



And my little Let's Book It project was finished  I can't believe this little piece took me all month to do.


The RSC14 light green blocks to add to the box.  Four great scrappy quilts are going to evolve from  these months of colour play.


And my Handmade Christmas/Simple Small Project combo made for another addition to the pressie box.

Some QALs - Doodle Quilts Row, Marcus Brother, and Country Corners - added to the mix.  Oh, and some secret sewing too.

August was a lovely month of starts and finishes - most importantly, I had fun with my quilting.

Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  2. So where did Quiltbug relocate to? She mentioned the move on the web, but gave no information about where she was moving to.... inquiring minds want to know!
