6 and 6 + in 2018 July update

Meredithe recently asked if we had started any new projects, I ditched Dear Daughter for Dearest Lavender when we adopted a newborn calf and Karen started a sew-along for Dearest Boy, so my list now looks like this:

These are my 5 blocks that I have finished for Dearest Lavender, it's been fun being part of a blog sew-along again.

I am also currently sewing Simply Blessed and finished Block 1 in July.

I am also trying to progress my Reading the Fine Print and now have a way forward with help from my sister with choosing new sashing and setting triangle fabric.

Since my last update I also completed a whole quilt in record time, my version of Lori Holt's Lets Bake! for my daughter-in law-to be.

I've decided to bite the bullet and have sent three of my quilts from the '6 to be quilted and bound' section of the list to my wonderful long arm quilter so hopefully by the end of August at least one might be finished.

  2. Love the quilt for your DIL to be, sure she will love it. Love the text print background on your applique, really makes the colours sing!
