August NewFO

I love it when someone gives me permission to start something new - well, I would have any way.  BUT, thank you Barbara of for inspiring us to be creative and inspirational.
New projects for August:
Jelly Roll Quilt, Schnibbles candle mat (and color challenge),  FMQ challenge, Dump Quilt (2), 12" Mini for swap, Doll Quil/Doll for swap, Tetris Quilt, and Bowls with Borders for Blog Hop.  And of course, all the various block and quilt alongs that update each month.
I haven't shown these - the stars for 'Summer Stars' mini quilt.
I'm, also, doing her 'Forget Me Not' quilt along - will show those next month.
And my SIL and I are making bags - after I didn't sign up for a bag swap because I don't make bags - duh.  She is using the 'Mini Charmer' pattern - oh, it is gorgeous.  And I found what I thought was a cute bag on E. Schenck - ' Sweet Sixteen' - oh, my oh, my!!  I read the pattern at least a dozen times - so many mistakes - that I think I re-wrote the pattern before even cutting fabric.  Well - I like a challenge!
The DOTS have arrived!  I have so many dotty fabrics - this is just a smidge.  Getting ready to work on my blocks for the Dots on Dots Blog Hop - my day is Sept 12th - my September NewFO project.

"The foliage has been losing its freshness through the month of August,
and here and there a yellow leaf shows itself
like the first gray hair amidst the locks of a beauty
who has seen one season too many."- Oliver Wendell Holmes

Love those stars! Wow!
I'm seeing lots of fabrics with dots online as well as in fabric shops. I'm looking forward to seeing what you create with the dots in your stash.

Barbara said...

Those are some great projects! Aren't the dots fun? My block is ready to go, and it was so much fun to make.

(sorry to put a random comment on your blog but. . .)

You won the traveling stash giveaway on my blog BUT, the email address on your "about" page isn't working for me.

Please contact me so I can get your address and get the stash box off to you.

Lots of fun new projects. Do you shop at EE Schenks? I'll have to make sure I don't buy that pattern. Love the Temecula Stars.
