Hello Everyone! I hope you’ve had a good week. Ours has been rainy! I think we had rain almost everyday, plus we had rain from the Tropical Storm. The rain always makes it easier to stay inside and work on fun stuff though. I have several works to update you on, but first I want to give you some more info on Jacquelynne Steves ” I Love Home” BOM.
Here is the quilt. Those house blocks are just so cute! Jacquelynne is offering the fabric kit on sale until June 27 if you would like to make the quilt using her fabrics.
I showed you some of my fabrics here,
but I’ve added these Bella solids by Moda to them. Fig Tree had their Peaches and Cream bundle back in stock, so I ordered it. It has all these half yard cuts plus about 6 half yard cuts of low volume prints in the bundle. These solids go perfectly with my fabrics and I don’t have to try to search for them myself. I will not be using the black, but I already have a blue Bella solid that will go nicely with this group. You can sign up for the Free BOM here. Don’t wait, the first block will be sent to you the first Monday in August!
Now, on to other works in progress.
I finished quilting both of these graduation quilts last week and the bottom one for my nephew is completely finished! It’s just been too cloudy to get good pictures, so hopefully the sun will shine today so I can get this sent to him. I need to hand sew the binding onto the blue quilt, then that one can be sent off as well.
Last Monday was the last night of the president’s term for my quilt guild, The Silver Comet Stitchers. Instead of making her a quilt, the vice-president suggested that we each make something for charity. One of the guilds service projects is placemats for Meals on Wheels.
I made these placemats and just finished them in time for the meeting on Monday. I wanted something summery and these hit the mark. They remind me of picnic table cloths. It was sort of hard to give them up after I made them, but they didn’t take long to make, so I think I will make a set for me. I will have a tutorial to make these in a couple of days, if you want to make your own set.
I also made block 15, T-block, by Jo Morton for the Moda Blockheads BOW. They now have all the blocks and instructions listed here in one place if you want to get started. This weeks block is an applique and an alternate pieced block. I’m doing things a little different this week, so stay tuned for my finish next week.
Since it’s nearing the end of the month, it was time to start June’s Mini and More project.
This is it so far. I think I’ll make a pillow from it, that way, I can take it in our camper if I want. The pattern called for some thread embroidery around the banner, but I’m going to add a little hand embroidery to it. Hope to have this finished by the end of the weekend.
Thanks for stopping by.
