Happy Wednesday! I've been working on a few things in the sewing room--I've been trying to focus on works in progress so I can get a good list of things to work on this summer. I really do seem to get a lot of my sewing done in the summer because it's too hot here to go outside much!
First I pieced the back for my "Go Four It" American Patchwork & Quilting quilt along quilt. I had yardage on hand of one of my favorite Aloha Girl prints and thought it would make the perfect summer back!
I picked borders, too! The sides are bordered in the taupe polka dot from Avalon...
And I bordered the top and bottom in this taupe floral from Somerset. I didn't have enough of either fabric to do all the borders, and it seemed in keeping with this being a scrap quilt.
I also prepped some wool applique' blocks the other night. At the retreat I attended after market there were a few ladies (one in particular) who had projects prepared and ready to stitch at a moment's notice. The women were so inspirational...I could hardly wait to get home and do some preparation--it feels good to have these ready to stitch! I actually want to get a few more projects prepped as well...they are all small and won't take too long to finish!
Monday was a happy mail day here...a few Bright Sun precuts arrived...the first time I'd seen a bundle and a jelly roll in our fabrics. Love them! A few people have asked about availability...Bright Sun will ship to shops in October, and I'll definitely let you know when its shipping!
Thanks so much for stopping by! Have a wonderful day!
