It has been some time since I've posted any sewing news but I have been busy...sewing and life in general. I have been keeping up with the blog hops over at Sew We Quilt even though I didn't get signed up. I'm just lovin' the Stacks of Bowls! If you haven't seen them, you can take a peek at the schedule of hoppers here.
Any who...you ask what I've been doing? Well, I finished this new table runner and placemat set (the table runner has been finished for a while but the placemats were waiting to be made.)
The fabric is Hometown by Sweetwater. I just love this line! It is so much fun to look for names of cities/towns from all over. My DH and I have even looked up a few on google maps.
I love the giant rick rack detail.
The pattern is called Riff~Raff by Silk Road Creations.
I also caught up on my BOM quilting! Here is the August block for BOM with Quilt Story. The theme for August is fussy cut which was a little challenging for me because only one fabric that I am using is able to be fussy cut. The rest are blenders.
Here are the blocks all together: hour glass, fussy cut, rounded, flying geese, 9-patch, HST
And here are the July and August blocks for the Craftsy BOM with Amy Gibson.
July blocks: Dresdens
August blocks: stars
I also made 2 blocks for the Quilting for Kids charity group on Flickr.
These string blocks were fun to make!
I have a few more projects that I have been working on but you'll have to wait to see them. Here is just a peek...
They are for the Dots on Dots Blog Hop coming in September!
