Summertime Sewing

I used the pattern Hoop Quilts by Anne Marie Chany of Gex X Quilters. Her flag version is on her blog. Fabric for the flag in the hoop is Gingham Girls by Amy Smart. Such a creative idea and fun to make.

Couldn't resist sewing a patriotic table topper using Gingham Girls fabric. The pattern is Baby Blocks by Missouri Star Quilt Compnay.

Loved piecing this 27 1/2" x 63 1/2" "picnic like" table runner. Cherry Turnover Table Runner by Lori Holt with her Sew Cherry 2 collection. What an enjoyable and quick project.

Can a girl have too many bags? Guess not. A summertime tote made with Tilda fabrics. The pattern is from the book Happy Flower Quilts by Atsuko Matsuyama.

Hope you can find some time to sew, stitch, and create.

I participated in an Ugly Fabric Quilt Contest for an area church benefit.  This is the Ugly fabric I was given- a whole half yard plus.

 Using the Tiny Wonky Stars pattern by Missouri Star Quilt Co., this is what I did with the ugly fabric.
