I did get a lot of sewing in though, and thought it'd be easiest to do a big recap post and see if I can jump start my blog up again!
My latest finish just got quilted a week or so ago, now that the weather is getting cooler. I took a class, in Walla Walla, WA, called 2 + Two by Colleen Blackwood. I knew it was going to be for my youngest son, and asked him what colors he wanted, knowing that he really likes these lone star quilts. His response was "all black". Ha! Challenge accepted!
I deviated a bit from the pattern's last piano key border, because I only had the black and script fabric left.
For the star, I quilted gears on the center.
Below are some other finishes, including my swap block quilt, which I finished just before our May Quilt Show, and 2 queen quilt tops that I finished, a "Square Foot Garden" quilt made with some orphan quilt blocks I'd made a while ago, and Tula Pink's Space Dust pattern, which I made as part of "Quilt Dad's" Space Dust Quilt Along this summer.
My other pursuit has been sewing with plenty of Pendleton Wool, making and selling lots of goodies, including these beer growler bags. I'm stocking up my Etsy store for the holiday season, and crossing my fingers!
I hope you all had a fantastic summer!!
