It's hard to believe that August is quickly coming to a close for us. Half of the grandchildren are already back in school and the rest go this week. Where did the summer go? My orioles have already migrated as well. The garden will quickly take on an autumn feel.
August has been an incredibly busy month for us so my sewing room has sat idle day after day. The bits and pieces that I did get to are mostly not finished.
Thanks to Ida, who so kindly sent me some of her leftover Dick and Jane fabric, I was able to work on a quilt for the newest grandbaby. Since her name is Sally, I wanted to use the Sally piece as the center of the quilt. It still needs a border to tie it all together before the quilting can be done.
Quilt Story recently had a sponsered giveaway that I was lucky enough to win. These are the luscious fabrics that I received from Joy at A Joyful Soul Fabrics.
I was able to finish my Easy Street binding this month while being a passenger on several long car trips. Mary did the wonderful machine quilting on it for me. It's nice to have this finish for the month. I hope to make some shams to go with this and use it on the bed in my guest room.
For my September finish, I think I will try to finish the election quilt that I made last summer.
