Ending out July

  I'm ending out July a day hopes of having my computer re-built in the next couple of days.  Sir Old Man has taken on another challenge for me---with the enlisted help of  Hunter, Wonder Geek,  from next door!  Computer parts are arriving daily and a newly created computer will arise from the mass of stuff sitting in the office and hallway.  At least I am telling myself that----fingers, toes, and eyes crossed.

July 2014:  Quilted donation for Habitat for Humanity; Cascade wall hanging for guild auction; Pot Luck Supper completed;  Quilted donation quilt for Quilts of Valor.

   Two donation quilts were quilted, one donation wall hanging made and quilted, and a finish for the Let's Book It monthly challenge.  Hot Legs had a work out this month.   

   This is Pot Luck Supper that I started in May for the Let's Book It challenge.  Here's the post where I began.   The pattern is Hot Dish, but in the South we love to hold Pot Lucks.....bring your favorite recipe in your prettiest dish and share.  Throw a quilt on the ground and dig in!  I used a new to me motif to quilt this one.....the swirl flower in an all over pattern.  

   So that leaves one quilt to be quilted, and one on the wall.......the scrappy trips.  I added a few more blocks.  And yes, I am absolutely loving this one.  I have about 20 more strip sets selected to sew, so there is still a ways to go. And I have not made much of a dent in the floral stash....those strips just keep multiplying.   
    Still more prep work for the feathers workshop and trunk show.....I am dragging my feet there, so that's got to be my push for the next week.  Then I will be ready for some fun and a new project......and absolutely no idea where that will take me.  I also need a good day to take some photos of some very special doll quilts that came from Mrs. Claus in Arizona.  Stay tuned, you don't want to miss them!
Happy stitching.  


  1. ...everything is beautiful but I'm really lovin' that scrappy trips around the world! It's gorgeous!!!

    Good luck with your to-be-rebuilt computer! *fingers crossed for you*

  2. Hi, Debbie. Beautiful quilts, as always. I especially like the Cascade wall hanging...very summery! Good luck with the tech problems. I finally broke down and bought a new computer...but then had to clean out the accumulated mess from the old computer...I'd rather be stitching!
    best, nadia

  3. A full month! You accomplished so much!
    Your swirled flower looks great! I need to work on that one.
    Oooo--your Scrappy Trips is very pretty in your floral fabrics, Debbie!

  4. All just so pretty! I really love the scrappy floral trip, too - gorgeous!

  5. The scrappy trip is my favorite but they're all wonderful. I've come back and looked at the trip a few times when I'm thinking "what now".

  6. Great job, esp on the donations! I think that'll be me soon as it seems I just have plenty of quilts around here now, and yet plenty of fabric to go thru.

  7. I remember reading about your pot luck quilt previously and love how it has turned out. The quilting is pretty awesome too. I am following you through Bloglovin now......just so I don't miss anything happening with your floral strip quilt.

  8. All your quilts are beautiful Debbie, but that Cascade Wall Hanging is magnificent, and, one day, I hope to attempt to put one together for myself. Right now, I'm in the process of cleaning up the huge mess I've made in my basement sewing area. I'm an extremely 'messy' quilter, and since I've been working on new baby projects for quite awhile now, all my flannel, minky and fleece have been strewn around, all over the place, and now, before I begin anew, neatness will once again prevail. Thank God, my hubby of 59 years, is the total opposite, because I couldn't imagine what the basement would look like otherwise. Thanks again for sharing!

  9. Some really great finishes. Your watercolor quilts are so beautiful

  10. You really put the pedal to the metal this month and all the finishes are beautiful. It has to feel good to make this much progress.

  11. OOOooo your quilts are gorgeous! :)
