July Library Report

Well it's difficult to believe that we are heading towards the end of July. How quickly is summer going?! So in the last month, I've finished hubby's Dressed to the Nines quilt :)






I also started to do get that order ready for another quilt like this. Hopefully I'll have that one finished in the next few months. The order has been put on the back burner by the buyer since they would like to have two other quilts done that is more "time sensitive".

I've also been doing a bit more on my embroidery machine. I've made these totes.






And a few purses which one lucky blog reader won on a giveaway held here on my blog :)








Also I've completed my first BOM for Fat Quarter Shop's 2014 Mystery Quilt.





I just love this fabric line! It is Snowbirds by Laundry Basket Quilts for Moda. It is gorgeous! And I was lucky enough to receive the second BOM today :)

I'm also working on an order for a Monkey Quilt. I'm working on doing the applique stitching right now. I'm hoping to have that one finished by next week or so.

I started vacation today :) So excited to have all of next week off! I'm so excited to be having a sewing vacation with my mom and sister. Five days at a cottage with sewing machines going, iron steaming and food cooking. And we'll be in wine country :) Just love it! Hopefully I'll have some pictures to post when I get back.

So I have not worked much on my library list this month. Maybe next month will be more promising :) I'm linking up with Adrienne at Chezzetcook Modern Quilts for the July link up. I'm having a great time with this library project and I have so many things to be thankful for that came out of joining it. Being able to meet other quilty people out there has been fantastic and being a member of the Maritime Modern Quilting Guild just makes me feel so happy to know there are other people like me :)

Hope everyone has a great weekend :)

  1. Me too, I am so glad I joined the Library Project. I have accomplished a lot and it feels great to quilt along with others. I am using my little purse as a sewing kit for my purse. Filled it with sewing essentials. Love it!

  2. It is so great to find "your people"! I am sure glad we found you! I am on vacay too now for the next TWO weeks. Taking my machine to the camp too. Likely others around me will not be too impressed, but they will have to deal. I must quilt! Can't wait to see some pics :)

    1. Awe :) Thanks. So happy to find all of you :) Got to love vacation! I can only take one week but I'm really looking forward to it! People will just have to deal with your quilty tendencies. I think I would be having withdrawals if I was relaxing at a camp for two weeks and not sewing :) Hope you have a great vacation!

    1. Jeanette, I have to say I am sorry that I didn't reply to you. I must have missed this comment somehow. Thank you for the compliment :) I will be making a second one for an order this fall. Hope to see you at the August Sew In!

    1. Thank you :) It is really quick to piece together especially with precuts! D9P is a great pattern. I started another one for an order after someone seen my husband's quilt.

  5. I love a red and black quilt for a guy, and they always look fantastic! Your embroidery is beautiful. What is your library project? Do you have a list like the rest of us? (silly question, I know!) :-)

    1. Thank you :) I do have a list....I've done a lot of projects that were not on the list but it's difficult to follow the list when friends are having babies and I had a few commissioned orders come in. There's one quilt left to do and then a lot of small projects that I picked just to learn some new skills :) How is your list coming along?
