Summer sewing

We're enjoying summer here!

School's been out for awhile and we've been doing plenty of biking, camping, eating fun foods, watching movies and all that other great summer stuff!


 As far as summer sewing goes, right now I'm catching up on blocks for the Summer Sparkle Quilt Along by Faith Jones from Fresh Lemons at the Bernina blog We All Sew

 My house is covered in stars right now!

The ombre fabric by V and Co. has always interested me, but I never quite found a project for it until now.

These clean simple blocks and fabrics called out to me and I was quick to get started once I saw this fresh summer quilt.

Will I have it done in time to actually use it this summer?

Well, maybe not, but I'm sure giving it a try!

I did have a recent finish, quilted, bound and everything and I'll be back to share it with you soon.

That looks like it's going to be so much fun!

It's a wonderful weathered Summer here too. Good luck with the new quilt.

I like the star! Sounds like your summer is off to a great start! Enjoy! :-)

Stars are such a classic! I like the blue background on this one. I'm enjoying the summer too, but not a lot of sewing getting done here!

I love the ombre fabric you're using, particularly the blue. It sounds like you're enjoying your summer. My sewing always slows down now too, when there's so much to do outside.

I really liked this quilt Faith has designed. It's bookmarked! I haven't used the ombré before either but I do like them. My 10yo daughter loves ombré. Apparently we're icing a cake in pink ombré tomorrow! Sheesh! Is it humid for summer where you live?
