August 2012

August 2012

Those are my main projects for August. The ferris wheels are actually a hold over from July but oh well. I am still finishing another bag and making a tutorial for Cindy at Fluffy Sheep Quilting's  newsletter.

Urban Garden inspired quilt back

That is my first take on the back for the Windmills and Trees quilt. I am going to rip off all the sashing and make more improv blocks - soon I hope - as this version just does not work for me.


August was also filled with jam making, that is a pot of blackberry jam in progress. I made 52 jars of different sizes - blackberry, plum and fig.

Entrance Island

And we said good by to the Salish Sea - or you might know her as the Pacific Ocean - and headed home to the City, where work has engulfed me. But I will find a balance soon.

In the meantime, some friends are quilting along with me to make a Mod Pop. Come and join us if you like, we are moving slowly and I hope will have some fun along the way.

I am linking to Lynne at Lily's Quilts Fresh Sewing Day. Do go and see what everyone else has been up to.
