I didn’t blog much this past month! Part of my problem is that it has suddenly become nearly impossible to get my photos from my iPad onto my computer. I have to fuss with it for way too long just to get it to work, and I haven’t had time to devote to that. But I hope to get back to a regular schedule soon.
I’ve also been really hard at work preparing the new Block-of-the-Month quilts and pattern for Sew Sweet Quilt Shop, and the big reveal happens August 10th at the shop, so I’m really excited to have the quilts done and get to show them to you! So excited. Really really excited for you to get to see them. Really! If you’re not within range of the shop to come see them in person, keep your eyes peeled here on the 10th and I’ll post them here.
I did much better on blocks this month because I went to a retreat and sewed like the wind for 5 days!
My total this month is 151 — woohoo! My best month yet, but I have no more retreats scheduled, so this may be my best month all year.
Wanna see what I worked on?
I made 63 of these blocks from Cowboy fabrics. Now to finish getting them set together.
I made 8 more blocks for my guild mystery quilt, which I’ll just wait and show you when the quilt is finished.
I made two guild exchange blocks for Sandra. A propellor block . . .
. . . and a bow tie block:
I made 26 of these sawtooth stars for the border of a panel I can’t show you just yet until this quilt is gifted and in its new owner’s hands, so here’s just a sneak peek for now:
And I finished the Butterfly Quilt for my daughter’s best friend’s sister’s new baby, Sophia Georgette! I put the link to the pattern in THIS post. This came out so cute, I just may need to make another one!
Now . . . it’s your turn! What did you get done in July?
As usual, I’ve updated the Project page as current as I can get it at the time of this post, and I’ll update it again in a few days after most of the new totals have trickled in. Please report in with your new totals, and let us all know how you did this past month. We’re full into the second half of this year now!
Our new block making goal for August is 35 blocks, for a year-to-date total of 227.
The prize winner for June is Pam M., who has made 330 blocks so far this year — yay!
I’m wishing us all a productive sewing month of August! I know it’s a busy month, so good luck to us all on getting that sewing time in!
