Fresh Sewing Day – July Round Up!

It would be fair to say that I’ve had a pretty big month!  In fact, it’s the biggest July I have EVER had in my life!  Apart from all the interesting side stories happening, I managed to sew up an absolute storm hurricane.  It truly is amazing how much you can get done when you put your mind to it AND desperately use sewing as therapy!  Here’s a little old round up for you……
Clockwise from top left: My first Fat Quarter Shop Mystery Block of The Month – I forgot to post about this one!  Admittedly, it is not my usual style at all – but I’m going to stick with it, and at the end will have a lovely little semi-traditional quilt to give to someone!
My 9 Patch Mash Up Cushion – boredom with a block got the better of me, so I tried something different, and showed you a little tutorial of sorts.
Goldilocks & The Three Bears paper pieced block – for Gina’s month in our Wombat Stew Bee.
A sweet little Field Study Pinnafore ordered by a friend for a gift.  I love it when my customers see something someone else has ordered, and have to have one themselves!  I now have two more of these beauties to make – in the blue colour way.
Finished Swoon Quilt Top
I somehow managed to start AND finish my Swoon quilt!  I’m still wondering where and how that happened?  I think someone must have slipped me something in my cereal for a few weeks??  I am VERY pleased to say that this humungous quilt arrived back on my doorstep this morning, from Jeanette, who did the quilting for me!  Come back tomorrow and you will see the completely finished quilt!  Eeeek!

And just because I bought new fabric and had to sew with it – I also started and finished this divine Circa quilt top!  The quilting was completed yesterday, and today I did the binding.  Another big reveal for tomorrow!
I also snuck in plenty of repairs and alterations for work – the only people I will willingly do that for!  And made a couple of gorgeous dresses for my girls.  It’s certainly been a productive month!
