My Summer Project

I spent the summer making this quilt.  It is from the "Little Bits Quilting Bee" book; it is called Floral Notes.  I used some Kaffe Fasset Liberty Marleybone Fat Quarters.  Fat Quarters and the book were Christmas gifts from my sons.  The quilt is lap size, each block is 17".  I liked how it turned out so much that it is currently hanging near my desk in my sewing space.

Pink Lemonade before Quilting

Finished this little beauty up over the weekend.  Thank you to Lori of  Humble Quilts for sharing this sweet project.  Now I need to find some time to quilt it.  

This was beautiful evening here in Florida.  My husband and I went for a bike ride just before supper.  So enjoyable!

Quilt a Long with Lori

My blocks for the Quilt a Long with Lori are complete through Step 2.  Yeah!  When the first step was posted,  I did not have a pink that worked for me.  So Friday after work I stopped at JoAnns and found a pink fabric.  These blocks have been a delight to piece and I am enjoying the slow pace.

Blossoming Trees and Just Takes 2

Continuing to work on my Blossoming Trees.  I've gotten this far and I am stuck.  Not sure what to do for a border.  Just trying to be a little creative and not only follow a pattern.

In other news, I am working on my Just Takes 2 blocks.  Four of the six are completed.

Quilt a Long with Humble Quilts

Lori at Humble Quilts is sharing a Quilt-A-Long this month.  It features a yellow and pink antique doll quilt with Shoofly blocks.  I am planning to Quilt-A-Long.  It looks like an enjoyable and easy quilt to make.  I pulled some fabrics from by collection.  I'm a little short on pinks...might have to do some shopping.

For my Just Takes 2 quilt, I am planning to use the various red fabrics I already have with a Kona white.  That way I will use some fabrics that I have had a while and it will make some space for newer updated pieces.  My selections are these.
