WIP Wednesday: A Busy Month

 Did you miss me?

I had a wonderful time at Quilt Wyoming -- truly nice, nice people, the best classes and most impressive door prizes ever! I promise a road trip report on Saturday!

But now I really have to buckle down and sew like the wind for the rest of July -- there are five (yep. FIVE!) quilts that must be finished -- sewn, quilted, bound and blogged! by August 2!

First up is today's WIP, the September Jelly Roll Party sample. I feel strongly that next month's sample should be finished for this month's Jelly Roll Party! So I must have the September sample ready to show by the August Jelly Roll Party.

The September quilt is "Windmills" by two of my favorite designers, Pam and Nicky Lintott:

The fabric is "Blueberry Crumble" by Moda.  I think it really looks like September, don't you?  This is only 16 of 48 blocks, so I need to get back to the sewing machine now!

Linking up to WIP Wednesday at Freshly Pieced.


Friday, I am judging "Heritage Arts" 4-H projects for the El Paso County Fair. I can't wait to see what this year's 4-H'ers have made.

    1. I love their patterns. And now that I know my LQS can get them from Checker Distributors, I hope to make more for next year's Jelly Roll Party!

  4. You never stop do you?! Busy, busy, busy. I have no doubt you'll get it all done too!

  5. Judging sounds like fun! Those 'Blueberry Crumble' fabrics are wonderful.
