Wonky Bits...

Added to my display wall are the first six rows of blocks for my "Summer Solstice" Quilt, from the Sunshine and Shadows book, mentioned in this post, if you wish to check out the links there.
Definitely out of my color comfort zone with the pink and the yellow, but I think it works? Perhaps you can see the green and yellow in the pink print? There are six of us doing a project from the book, and the majority of us went out of our color comfort zone. It will be interesting to see all the projects together when done. A future show and tell post for sure!!! 

It was a Wonky Bits day yesterday, and here is what some of the gals have put together.

PG put together another lovely Bonnie Hunter quilt top. We helped her sandwich it.
 PK's darling baby quilt just needed the binding hand-sitched yet.
 Another of PK's, needing some finishing up on the binding.
And, I didn't take photos of PD's sandwich that she put together, nor the sandwich they helped me with, but here is a link to the quilt top that I'll be quilting next week, hoping to have done and bound for a Sept 10th quilt retreat I have coming up.

Hope you are all having a wonderful summer!

Happy stitching!

"I Spy"

I've got my display wall put up at my trailer, and already put to good use! Here is the "I Spy" project I am putting together for the grands. 
Not the greatest photo. Cell phone photo...
 Row 2, 3, 4, is how the rows will be when done, the rest is just laid out as to where I want what block. There still needs to be a sashing in between them...

Edit: Sitting here to do today's post (August 28), and it seems I forgot to hit publish for this post for last week. Oops!

Went to two Quilt Shows today...

So I thought I'd share some wonderful eye candy that I've seen today.

Only machine quilted circles on this quilt, and I love the way they 
stand out on this very simple use of scraps! Very effective!
 Love the fabrics used on these pieces! I bought the tote bag pattern (kit), and friend PD bought the the pattern for the other pieces. Looking forward to making them!
 This one really caught my eye! Take a good look at how the blocks 
are put together, using 9-patches.
 I bought the pattern for this quilt that was on display in a vendors booth. 
Hexies and 3D Flowers that I thought was cute...
 This one would make a great one for a man in one's life. 
I find it very striking...
 A modern quilt. Love it! Something to try at some point...
 This one caught my eye as something totally different. 
Unusual even. I like it!
There were many vendors at this quilt show, and even a few long-arm machines to be tried. Have you ever heard of "George". Tried it. Loved it!!

Happy Stitching, and I hope you are all enjoying a wonderful summer!

Hot Days of Summer.

 DD#1 is here again for a wedding in Regina this August long weekend...
  Yours truly and the twins.

Fur-girls soaking up the sun, after many rain and cloudy days this past week.
 Friend PD came to my creativity trailer for a day of stitching.
This is her project on the go.
 Fun photo booth pics for a bride and groom keepsake album of all the guests.
DD#1 and twins leave for home Wednesday, and Grammy needs a holiday...
