Well, I know it's not officially summer yet, but school is out, and I think the heat is here to stay (until Octoberish). So on the first full day of not having to wake up at 6:00 a.m. I did a little sewing. I'd been wanting to make the glasses case from the latest issue of Quilts & More...and it was a great little pattern.
I got a little carried away and decided to make three to match the zipper bags I'm using for gifts. Now I need to make one of these cases for myself because it will really help me find my sunglasses in my purse!
Binding is completed on my Spools quilt...and it's already hanging up in my sewing room. Painting this room is on the "to do" list this summer, and then I'll share an update of all the changes I've been making in here. I smile every time I look over at this quilt...those colorful spools just make me so happy!
I'm working on finishing the binding on my Strawberry Fields quilt. I recently bought a small package of the new Clover Wonder Clips to try. I absolutely love them. They are a little pricey, so I'll have to collect them little by little, but I definitely think they are worth the money, especially if you can find a sale or use a coupon.
I've been waiting to share my market sewing until the designers have posted about their new patterns, and I can finally share one of the quilts I made in April. This is Flower Girl, designed by Camille using Marmalade. I loved sewing this quilt. These are just a couple of pictures I snapped before it was off to be quilted.
Really heart this quilt. I think it would be really fun as a 9-block wall hanging too...

And this is what it looks like now...after some fabulous quilting by Angela. You can read more about this quilt and Camille's other new patterns here.
Thanks so much for stopping by...have a wonderful weekend!
