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:
It's your turn to share:
'Fraid mine isn't going to get started this month. Busy summer.
It's looking so cute Sharon! Good decision with that bottom row of hst's.
I like your version much better.
Beautiful quilt. Glad to see such a sweet design get made. Perfect for homespuns too!
Yes, this is you and do love your version best. Good project to show how a few changes can make a pattern your own!
I love those crazy charms for the road trip and not seen them around here at all! :-( One of these days...I'm going to dust off those old books and put them to good use too!
I like your's better too, especially the borders :)
Very cute! I like what you did with it.
Very cute wall hanging! Hope you found the time to finish the hand quilting.
