July was a month that I would rather not dwell on .... so apart from my Bee Blocks:
a quatrefoil block for Patty in the Stash Bee - this is the third time I have made this block this year but I love it ... this quilt in the colours she chose is going to be sensational!
a double star block for Kirsty in the Bee Hive, actually this was for August but because of holidays we were given instructions early and I got to it because .....
This block was designed by Christa Quilts and the tutorial can be found here. Contrary to what you may think this block comes together easily and pretty quickly. I was really surprised but it uses the fast flying geese method which I had never used before and it's great!
and my books (top left - easy read picked from a book swap shelf, top right recommendation from Ruth at Charly & Ben's Crafty Corner which made it onto my book worm list, bottom left seen on a friend's IG feed, bottom right booked picked for initial book club meeting):
I am going to move swiftly on to August!!
To that end I am going to state my OMG intention and link it up to Red Letter Quilts:
My OMG for August is to make 5 blocks for my Summer Sampler quilt.
It was only because I had linked up for the first time in July that my first block was made. Admittedly it was just under the wire but I would never have sat up that late and done it otherwise and it's got me eager to get some more made!
Bring on August - more sunny days, family staying and lots of sewing!! x
