I did a lot of sewing with our Strawberry Lemonade collection in May and June. And I continued to sew with it in July! Above are the Hearts at Home II quilt and a nine-block wall hanging from the same pattern that I pieced. They both have gorgeous custom quilting by my friend Val. I’ve also got a fun magazine quilt project I’m working on behind the scenes. And I’m sewing hexagon flowers with this collection for an upcoming project. Finally, I’ve just started a fun fall wall hanging that I can’t wait to share with you next month!
Five Things I’m Loving Right Now
- Right now, my favorite fabric to sew with is our Strawberry Lemonade collection. I’ve made so many projects with it, and the ideas keep coming! I’ll be sharing more over the next month or so for sure!
- I’m nearing the finish of this book on creativity and have really enjoyed it. I also love this gorgeous children’s book that just arrived.
- I got this facial cleanser during the Nordstrom sale and absolutely love it! It makes washing my face at night a treat 🙂
- My friend Nancy pieced my Season’s Greetings pattern in our Strawberry Lemonade fabrics, and I love it so much (photos below).
- Finally, I’ve been trying lots of new recipes this month, and this Mango Chicken Pasta Salad with Tarragon Lime Dressing has been my favorite. I used frozen mango, but fresh would be even more amazing. Also, there are lots of flavors going in in this salad, so you could also leave the mango out and it would still be delicious.
