That’s still the mess corner that is home to all of my UFO’s and WIP’s. Plugging away at that pile…. especially now with a clean and crisp sewing studio to be creative in! I also have a big blank wall that I’d really like to see covered in mini’s made by my Quilty friends… Hint hint!!

And to continue with this list:
1. Canadians Quilt Bee Block – I haven’t seen the post for July’s block yet, so this will have to wait.
2. Do.Good Stitches Block – ditto.
3. Friendship Swoon Blocks – Jaclyn is away this week, and for another 2 weeks in August. I should really move this down to the September list…
4. SMQG June Challenge – MQG challenge quilt with Petal Pinwheels – DONE!!! And I am so happy with it!!!! However…. It has been raining for the past month so I don’t have good pictures of it yet. Stay tuned!
5. SMQG July Challenge – make a modern border. I have combined this with my husband’s birthday quilt and pieced most of the top (minus the modern border) at our SMQG sew in this past weekend. Good thing it was raining all weekend so I didn’t feel one ounce of guilt holes up in the basement of the LQS with my guild members.

    Your sewing room looks great, very conducive to creating, it will be fun to see what sort of border you add to the blue hst quilt,

  2. I’m way behind in my blog reading! I LOVE your quilt studio! I had hoped to have mine all ready for use by now, too, but my summer has been hijacked so far. And I need a trip to IKEA. Maybe in September. Meanwhile, I’m feeling inspired by yours!

    • I’m way behind on my blog reading AND my blog posting!! Camping and lakes aren’t condusive to sewing or to blogging! Thanks for your kind words about my studio! I love it too!!! I need some rainy days so I can not feel guilty about being down there!
