Wow, it's been awhile eh? I didn't plan on taking a little blog vacay but seems that I did. Summer has kicked off with a bang here. We had grad(can hardly believe that I am the mom of a high school graduate!), than Canada Day and we also made a surprise trip to Jim's grandparents to celebrate the 4th of July. The weather has been stellar; hot, hot and hotter. That has resulted in lots of time outside; sadly I am still as pasty white as I was in December lol.
As a result, quilting has taken a back seat to real life. And I am surprised to say that I haven't minded in the slightest. This week we have been doing VBS with our church and I have found some time to sew. And sew I did.
My mom and I made a grad quilt for a friend of A's. We took her less favorite colours out of the quilt and I ended up making 2 lap quilts out of the leftovers.
We added a few Bella solids that matched the line. I love this fabric line.
And the second quilt
This is my favorite block out of both quilts.
I've also finally had some progress on my summer quilt. I had actually bought this fabric to make a quilt for myself last summer and never got around to it. I started cutting it out a few weeks ago(took a lot longer than I care to admit lol) and the blocks finally started coming together last night.
The pattern calls for 88 blocks to make a 90x100 quilt. I want mine at around 115square so I just made blocks until I ran out of fabric.
I think I have enough.
As always, with summer here I won't be blogging as frequently as usual. Only 6 more weeks until school goes back; lots of summer left to play in!
1 love it too:
