WIP Wednesday -- The Start of Summer

It's finally summer vacation time.  Bring on the sewing.  I've had several finishes with the five H2H quilts that were mailed to Jack's Basket this week.  It's time to update my list!  I haven't updated it since 5.8.19!

I'm happy to share that I finished the customer camo quilt that I started yesterday.  Whew.  One down, two more for that customer to go.  She requested I quilted the two panels together.  There was no patchwork...just two panels.  I longarm quilted them with the Circle Lord Swirls giant template board.
 Here's a pic of the five finishes.  You can read all about them here.



I also finished our son's traditional costume for International Day at school.  His country was Croatia.  You can read all about that here.



My OMG (one main goal) project for June is this fun Dot Dot Dash bag.  I won this during the orphan adoption from Cathy who blogs at Cathy's CRAZY BY DESIGN.



Stitching may slow down on my Linen & Threads Stitch Along Mystery.



We managed to have some fun at our annual local library summer reading kickoff event.  Argh!

  1. Love your charity quilts! What a great variety of color and pattern. They are sure to find good homes soon. The quilting on your customer quilt is wonderful. Love those circles.
