Fresh Sewing Day-July...

For me, June was the month for finishing large quilts!
One had been in the works since last year, so I was very happy to get it done......it is a large queen size bed quilt.
Ocean View From The Prairies.
The second large quilt was done as part of an Ironwork* QAL with Sandi at Piecemeal Quilts
I called mine Off The Grid
Apparently I was going through my orange and grey(gray) phase!
My other finishes were smaller, but a lot of fun.
Using a paper pieced pattern from Amy at During Quiet Time, I made a market tote for a friend.
I also made the gardening glove pattern, but it needs some work to outline the glove before I will use it.......unfortunate fabric choice on my part!
A quick and fun project was making key fobs!
yes, playing around with PicMonkey!
Finally, I did a ``READ``book bag as a pattern tester for Michelle at City House Studio.
That`s it for my June finishes, and I`ve already got 2 quilts in the planning stage for July!
Linking up with Lily`s Quilts Fresh Sewing Day.
AND.....Happy Canada Day!

I love the boot tote bag... adorable!!! The key fobs are cute, too, and something that has been on my "to-do" list for a while.

Oh, wow, Patti, that first quilt finish is SO gorgeous! I love it! Your grid quilt is really fun too. The Wellings tote is really fun also. Great key fobs as well. June has got to be making you feel really good with these sewing accomplishments.

Wow - so many great things accomplished for June. The layout of Off the Grid is great and the tote such a kick.

Annie said...

Oh wow, Patti! Your Ocean/Prairie quilt is SO gorgeous! Your grid quilt is really fun as well as the Wellings tote! And your key fobs are really cute! I think I'm gonna have to give those key fobs a try one of these days. June must be making you feel really good with all these fantastic finishes.

These are some pretty good finishes for June. Especially the large quilts. Wonderful effort.

Love your blob name as it struck a chord with me. I took up quilting when I retired and find it a wonderful passion. Hope you had a great Canada Day. We spent ours having a bonfire at the pond. You have a great blog!

June was full of beauty. I love off the grid. Can't wait to see what July holds.

Wow! Great quilts and I love the boot bag!! Right now my most favorite fabric in the world is the Jenny and jack line! Do you mind me asking how you pieced the boot? I just love it and was wondering if there was a pattern for it.
