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.
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!
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!
