Summer Sewing Continues

If you follow me on Instagram you know I’ve done a better job of sewing this summer than blogging. Whoops. Can I blame it on the fact that my laptop is fritzing out? Yes? Good! I’m buying a new one this week and then we can resume our lovely bloggy relationship :). Also, if you don’t follow me on Instagram, what’s up with that? Exactly, make it happen!

I have a project that’s almost ready to reveal and I’m so proud of myself.

*pats shoulder*

I’ve turned this lovely bundle…

Into some adorable St. Louis 16 Patch blocks. Since we all know I’m obsessed with them like I was N*SYNC back in middle school…

Finished piecing the top, and basted it with a little help from my friends…

This dog is perfection, you guys.
Quilted it with my amazing straight line design that I think I might trademark before long…

And finished the binding yesterday!

So, it wasn’t quilt in a day, friends, but I did finish this project in less than a week. From the girl who spent five months resisting anything but piecing a top we have made serious progress!!

Also, I wrote this post on my iPhone … It’s come to this. Don’t forget to go check out the bloggers up this week on Plum and Junes summer blog hop. I have really enjoyed reading more about some amazing quilters and meeting new friends. Finally, get ready for some email overload when I buy my new computer. It’ll be like Christmas in July for ya.

Happy Monday and happy quilting, friends!

  1. Fantastic near finish (can’t wait to see the final reveal!). You’ve made so muh progress this summer 🙂 I’m inspired to keep at it myself now too!

  2. Excited to see all these up and coming posts…love the fabric it’s gorgeous as usual! I feel your pain with the laptop….. mine’s still ‘doing my head in’ to use a classic uk phrase. Sadly my phone is worse so I’m sticking to wiggling the screen about every two seconds and squinting!
