WIP Wednesday 8.13.14

My son and I are still planning TWO more trips this summer.  School starts 8/19.  Gotta squeeze in one more amusement park and one more waterpark!  I unloaded my sewing things from our motorhome yesterday and started sewing again.  Here's we go...

I made the Classic to Modern block for August at Sew at Home Mummy.  I LOVE churn dashes!

Here are all of the blocks for this BOM project.  As you can see, I am stepping more and more out of my comfort zone as the months go by.  I'm linking up this block for this month.

Sew at Home Mummy

Check out the Halo giveaway that Lana is having at It Seams To Be Sew.
I made some blocks for the Block Lotto (see link on right sidebar to take you to it!)  Come back Saturday to see some more using my RSC14 scrappy bright greens.

This charity auction quilt is still on my frame.  I will work on it after 8/20.
