New patterns available

I have a couple of new patterns available through Connecting Threads!
 Fancy That pattern and quilt kit

You can find the kit and the pattern in the July 2019 catalog from Connecting Threads...or follow this link if you do not have the catalog available.  This quilt was designed with EQ8, a quilt design program I have used since it first came out! Love being able to pop the fabrics in so I can audition them for the final quilt.

This little quilt pattern and kit can be found here......My Happy Place.
It was also designed in EQ8!

While I enjoy designing quilts, testing the pattern is the hard part.  I can read it over and over, make the quilt....and still miss an error!  I need someone with good technical proof reading skills and can do this in about a one month period.....any takers?

As my brain clears up, things will get accomplished!  
What are you sewing on in the midst of the summer heat?  I am trying to finish one thing every week. 

grace and peace....Sharon

One thing...a finish!

It's stinking hot here in Missouri!  Trying not to complain as I would rather have this than below zero.

Last week I decided to try to finish one thing every week.  I did not make a list or anything, maybe I should?  So....ta da!  A finish! and it is quilted!
Last summer, I made all these hexies and when I saw the Enduring Legacy quilt by Sherri McConnell, I knew I had to make it.  It was in the June 2018 issue of American Patchwork and Quilting.  Such a fun quilt to make, and I used scraps and stash!  The only fabric I purchased was the backing.

I love hand stitching's a sort of meditation for me and a great way to relax.  What about you?  Are you working on a hand stitching project?  

Wishing you a happy and safe Fourth of July! 

grace and peace...Sharon
