Did July just fly by? I almost feel like I’ve missed this month. But no, I’ve been here, sewing and quilting away … but it feels like the month flew by SEW fast! I don’t often feel that way, but this month, I do!
And yet, when I look back on the month – a LOT of things have happened!
I think that the highlight of my month was receiving the Island Batik boxes. Oh – yes, it is a highlight for every single ambassador and we all LOVE it! Seriously!!! You can see my Unboxing post HERE.
Then there were the 2 “Christmas in July” posts. There was the Island Batik one where we were challenged to use the awesome Accuquilt Go!me fabric cutting machine, make a quilt, or ?? and gift it and the Go!me to a new quilter It was fun! You can read more about that post HERE.
The other Christmas in July was a blog hop – with a TON of eye candy and lots of inspiration for your quilting mojo! That post is HERE.
I did finish 2 UFOs this month! WhooHoo!!! And have 4 more to finish by the end of the year. I should be able to manage that!
The first UFO that I finished was Summer Solstice. It is a Judy Niemeyer paper pieced pattern that seemed to take ages to do. Well, I guess 4 years is close to “ages” – right?
You can read more about this finish HERE.
The other UFO finish actually turned into be 2 quilts … but they both got done! You can read about them HERE and HERE.
Starts in 2020
I had 5 new starts in July.
The tumbler quilt is now quilted and just waiting for binding! Sew close to a finish!
I did start my December Island Batik challenge while waiting for my boxes to arrive. But that has been put on the back burner for now … And since it’s a secret, I’m not going to show you any pictures! You’ll just have to wait for December!
I started this blue Carpenter’s Wheel … and the blocks are all done. It just needs to be webbed together!
My July Island Batik challenge was started AND finished … that was the first Christmas in July post! (See above)
And the August Island Batik challenge has been started. I am using the Studio 180 “Four Patch Square Up” ruler and a Fat Quarter bundle of Mesa Verde. I’m liking how the squares are coming out perfect!!! And, if you know me – that’s highly unusual! I more of a “fudge” it quilter than a perfect quilter!
How are you doing?
… with your UFOs and your PHD in 2020 progress? Here’s the linky party to show us!
You are invited to the Inlinkz link party!
Favourite Finish of the Month!
This is difficult … again … I like both Summer Solstice and the Island Batik Christmas in July … It’s hard, so hard to choose!
