Chain+Link Top complete
|Classic porch photo shoot|
Ever since my boys were little they have had the honor (or chore depending on who you ask) of holding up my quilt tops on the front porch as soon as I finished them. I wrote about our tradition in this Duck and Cover post shortly after starting to blog.
Well now that they're around less frequently the classic porch shot has become less of a regular thing - sad face. Today I got lucky and caught them both, just like old times. It feels fabulous to have made progress on the Chain+Link wedding quilt for my niece. Training my granddaughter early, she helped hubby with the billow of the breeze.

|Pulling scraps from the bucket - pure entertainment|
|Put some pre-cuts to use and broke into my precious fat eighths of Lotta Jansdotter|
I'm pretty new to IG but am finding the "drop everything" immediacy of it kind of appealing. After diligently chugging along with my other projects lately, I think I earned the detour that my afternoon took when I saw a message from @r0ssie_fmq Rossie Hutchinson that said "Pattern Testers Needed".
|Auditioning possible puss corner square scraps|
Her modern mash-up #greekpluspussquilt with it's scrappiness caught my eye and captured my heart. Sewing on whatever-I-darn-well-feel-like has always been the way I roll (hence my last post confessing to zero completions for Finish along quarter 2).
|From design wall to next to my machine stacked on my big ruler|
Not sure I will carve out more time than the 4 blocks in the works but it sure has been fun. She'll be releasing a pattern August 4th available on etsy and Craftsy.
It's Almost My Turn
The hop continues so be sure to visit Plum and June for week #3 links along with a fabric giveaway. I'll be joining in during the next round so I hope to see you back to hear all about me and my blogging and quilting tips. Until then - happy stitching!
