July Stash Bee Blocks

I made these blocks a couple of years ago for Stash Bee, so I was excited to revisit these birds.  Mary asked for some personalization so it was a little different this time around.  I actually made 2 blocks again because I realized my first one didn't meet her request for bright, large scale printed wings.  So, without further ado ...

Kate Spain Christmas Charm Swap


Crayon Box Quilt Studio

Last month I signed up for this charm swap through Michele at Crayon Box Quilt Studio.  This is the 3rd swap I've done through Michele and I know that she is so personable and efficient.

July ALOYF Goal

I thought I'd miss this month since I was at a family reunion with ALL my sisters and their kiddos, but I got back just in time to post =)  My July goal is to finish the blocks for and assemble my scrappy churn dash quilt.

SOSM II, Please

This is a quick post that doubles as my entry to the Super Online Sewing Match that's on over at Sew Mama Sew.  Their first bout was a couple of years ago, which I watched from the sidelines: I was sure I could never sew like that.  I was surprised at how inspired I was by each contestant!  Such great talent and so much growth with each challenge.

June ALOYF Finish

This month I knew I had to get done a little early.  Soon I'll be out of town enjoying some sister time!

June Stash Bee Blocks--Flowering Snowballs

I thought I posted these blocks a few days ago, but I guess I'm just now finding that moment to post them ...  My mom literally nagged me to finish these when she was here last week =)

June ALOYF Goal

I almost didn't post a goal this month.  I know things are crazy, and I wasn't sure I wanted to add to it all.  My mom has been here this past week and been encouraging me to get my bee blocks done.  I finally figured this morning that if I can get those done in the chaos of graduation, I can do this =)

May ALOYF Finish

It's done!  I really can't convey what a truly frustrating experience this dress has been.  Once I got through the straps (which took over a week of fretting and un-sewing and re-sewing ...) I thought I'd be home scott free ...

May Stash Bee Blocks

 This month our queen bee asked for these fun Circles Squared Blocks.  They are pieced together like a 9-patch and I used it them as a leaders-and enders while working on some of my Farm Girl blocks (more on that another time ...)
