A quiet few weeks...

You may notice my blog is a little quiet the next few weeks, Tuesday nightI went to Denver International Airport:

To pic up my 23yr old son who is here for a 3.5 week visit:

So not a lot of sewing will get done :)

Free July Block Pattern for Scrappy Adventures BOM 2015

Have you checked out my free 2015 Scrappy Adventures Paper Pieced BOM? Here is the link to the download site:

The July block is available to download free now! It is this star block:

And if you'd like to see blocks made by some of the other participants go to our Flickr sharing page:

The website gets about 300 hits a month and about 30% of those are repeat site visits, so a lot of people are returning to download these monthly pattern releases, which makes it super fun for me, I'm still deciding whether or not to offer one in 2016 but I'm enjoying it so much that I probably will :)

A flimsy finish

I finally finished this charity quilt top that I cut the squares for about 6 months ago! (Then promptly lost amongst my sewing room mess). The squares were cut 7" then made into HST so they are 6.5" or 6" once sewn into the quilt. So this quilt is a 36" x 36" 

Here's a close up of the fabrics:

So it'll get added to my 'to be quilted' tub but will be a high priority finish, because I'm eager to finally see it done!
