Another month already! Whew – is it just me or is the summer already flying by? There has been a lot of sewing going on this past month here, but somehow I never seem to feel as though I’ve accomplished as much as I’d like to. About a week was spent sanding and painting my new table. I also took several days to prep backings and bindings for Hospice quilts. Here is one all finished. The quilt top was generously donated by Laurie J. She has donated several to our Hospice group and it is so greatly appreciated! My favorite part of quilting is the piecing, and at this point my least favorite is the quilting. I am trying to build my skills, but really am not complaining because receiving quilt tops is such a boost to our cause!
I also went to the Pineapple Fabric sale last week in Archdale, NC. If you are ever close enough, it is worth the trip! There was a huge clearance tent and the fabrics were about $4 a yard. There was a room of batiks and their main room was packed full of wonderful top quality quilting fabric all at discount prices. I went for specific needs for existing projects, but couldn’t resist these precut strips. Can’t help myself – will begin this one any day now. I love a mindless project!
And here is my June wrap up. All in all, I am very pleased. Add to that, my studio got quite a bit more organized so I am one happy quilter!
