July goal...FINISHED!

Good morning All,

It's a gorgeous morning out, the weather has cooled off, it was almost chilly over night :)

I got my July goal finished, just in time. Put the binding on yesterday.

But I can only show you a little bit of it. Until Aug 2nd. My July goal was to get my Christmas in July blog hop project complete. I blogged about it here. Decided to use some swap fabric I had, instead of buy some new Christmas fabric.

I hope you come back on the 2nd to see the rest the table runner. It's a quilt as you go (QAYG) design, and I show you the steps to take to do some QAYG yourself.

Have a great day!

A Lovely Year of Finishes

Hello Everyone,

I missed out on WIP Wednesday, but as I have only been posting once a week, I'm putting it up today. It's hot here, again, but it will cool off again next week. Between the heat and the baby, I just haven't been doing much sewing.

I did manage to get some of my windmills together.

It needs a good bout with the iron ;) I am not real happy with it, but I hope it will grow on me, as I add the rest of it.


In other news. I have entered my I Spy quilt in the weekly Show and Tell over at The Quilting Gallery.

Tomorrow, July 26th, you can go over to the Quilting Gallery and vote for your favorite "quilts for little people".

If you are coming over from the Quilting Gallery, I welcome you and hope you'll enjoy looking around. You can find out more about my I spy quilt here,and here

Enjoy all the lovely eye candy!

WIP Wednesday

Hello Everyone,

I hope you've had a nice, quilty week. The weather has been gorgeous here, but we are about to get hot again.

I finally decided on a layout for my windmills. At least, I have a plan...

The middle will be pieced like a traditional hexagon flower.

Then I want to create a small green 'pathway' going around it, and another round of windmills.

I don't know if it's going to work, or if I am going to have to place a round of green hexagon's for the path, like a traditional hex garden. We'll see..

I'm calling it Windmill's in the  garden ;)

Linking up with Lee again this week. Thanks Lee.

Have a great day.

WIP Wednesday

Howdy Folks,

Hope the extreme weather has settled down for everyone. It's gorgeous here! Upper 80s/low 90s with a nice breeze :)

I have been doing very little sewing lately. I need to buy some batting, so that I can start doing some quilting, but I also want to rearrange my sewing machine/table so that I have more room.

I have started on my Christmas in July blog hop project though! So that is good. I've gotten this far, but now need batting so that I can continue. It's going to be a quilt as you go project.

I dug these out today too. This is a mystery pattern from Jess at the Quilt and Needle. I think it's either one of last years, or the year before! I want to get it finished.

And I'm still trying to figure out how I want these fun windmills laid out. I've been letting it 'stew' in my head for awhile, and nothing has come to me yet.

It's been a lazy Summer :)

Have a great day!

Linking up with Lee.

Happenings and ALYOF goal setting

Hello Everyone,

I hope those in the West are staying cool. I hate these heat waves. LOL

First up, if you are a Quilt and Needle forum member, OR are a member of our Facebook site, it's time to vote for the Paint Chip Challenge. You have until July 5th. And let me tell you, there is 13 gorgeous projects, and you can only vote once! It's a hard choice.

Secondly, here is my oldest sons finished quilt top. He loves it :)

 He is passionate about Trains, so I have called it Train Stop. He also is a math whiz, so those geometric shapes are right up his alley.

I love the gray graduate strips. They are from V & Co's Simply Color line.

And third, my goal for July is to get my Christmas in July blog hop project started and completed! I have to have it done by August 2nd, which is my day on the blog hop......

I don't even have my fabric yet! So can't even show you a picture of that. lol.

A Lovely Year of Finishes Have a great day!
