Let's Book It - August 2016

I hope you are enjoying your dusty old pals from the shelf as much as I am.  Actually I am noticing that I have a lot of 'saved' files of such lovely projects and just keep adding more to those files - nothing being played with.



This was one of those saved files - a cute free pattern with Connecting Threads.  The Welcome and the hearts didn't thrill me, but houses and geese and trees certainly do.

 

August was a busy month with trips, special projects, commission work - so glad I picked a smaller project as I got a late start on this.  I love homespuns for such a piece as this, so that tote had to come out.

 

Yes, one day I just put the pedal to the floor and got this far.  It hung for a couple of days to think on - you know, borders.


Yeah, I decided that bottom row made with the bonus HSTs just wasn't working for me and it went.  More homespuns for a log cabin border finish.  this is ready for quilting.  I have some travel/demo events in September and this one will go with me for some hand quilting time.

This month's charm is the Sail Boat:
