There are only a few more days of school left, and I can't believe how much there is still left to do. I've focused all my spare time on teacher gifts and I'm nearly done.
I'm working on a Divided Basket (pattern from Noodlehead), and my 3rd Tinker Tote from the Craftsy class, "Quilt-As-You-Go: Patchwork Bags".
I just need to sew down the binding on the tote, and of course fill both with summer goodies. I also picked up copies of Outlander (Amazon affiliate link) to include as summer reading. No reason not to share my addiction with someone else, right? I am counting down the days for the next one to be released (5 more, in case you are interested), and I have my Kindle all charged up.
I've also been sketching out my thoughts for my blocks for the guild quilt show at the end of September. The theme is "Across America" and I have 5 states to make finished mini's for. Each mini has to be between 10 and 15 inches square, so I've drawn mine 15 inches. I don't have any paper that large, so I find it helpful to draw my idea directly onto a piece of cheap muslin. It gives me a better idea of how the final block will look. Here is my road map for Massachusetts.
As you can see, I still have a lot of work to do, but at least I took the first step today.
As always, thanks for reading,
