This and that

Butterflies - top done

With less than 2 weeks to spare, my focus has returned to Rhonda from Quilter in the Gap's Finish-A-Long. I had 9 of these butterfly blocks at the beginning of the quarter and as of now, I have a pieced quilt top. I think these blocks are so pretty and a nice way to showcase these fabrics, which are Terrain by Kate Spain.

Hopefully I can get this top quilted by the end of the month, as it is on my FAL list. I am also hoping to quilt my Stained quilt for the FAL too - it is a good thing I like quilting part of quilt making so much.

Double Circle Flying Geese Pillow

On the weekend I finished my first ever pillow (cushion to some). I learned how to make this Double Circle of Geese at the Fat Quarterly Retreat in my class with Lynne from Lily's QuiltsThe fabrics are Summerville by Lucie Summers and black Quilter's Linen. My youngest has claimed this pillow as his birthday present.

Kaffe Fassett fabrics for me

Do you remember Claire and her ROYGBIV reversible quilt? Go here if you have forgotten.

Kaffe Fassett fabrics

Claire and her dad sent me this stunning set of Kaffe Fassett fabrics. I can hardly wait to use them to make a quilt just for me - they are perfect, thank you!

And if you have not yet voted, the finalists are up for the Summer Sewing Contest at Ellison Lane Quilts and you should head over to vote, there are a lot of beautiful things in the final cut (including many of my friends' makes, although not mine). Thank you to Jennifer for all the time and work in  hosting this event.

Ellison Lane Quilts

Since this post has a finish, work in progress and beautiful fabric, I am going to link it to Fabric Tuesday at Quilt Story (the button is over on the right). I have been missing these regular link ups, there is always a lot of inspiration there.
