Fresh Sewing Day and Resource Reminders

July Fresh Sewing Day
Linking up to  Lynne from Lily's Quilts Fresh Sewing Day keeps me on track and I love seeing the amazing projects of others.  For me quilting is a balancing act and I tend to juggle a lot - a lot - of ideas at a time.

June's mosaic is mostly bee blocks with only one quilt finished.  The charity blocks were ridiculously quick to make and the others super time-consuming which made for a good mix for the month.

Summer just doesn't feel like the time to be disciplined and driven so I'm OK with the lightweight showing.  July will probably be kind of sparse as well - we'll see - it's only just begun.
Projects to work on: Polaroid blocks (2) for F+F=AMSB, Not your Granny's Bee, Wedding Quilt - Old Italian block, Swoon, a Quilt for MQG show, Alpaca Pillows, Oak Tree Improv quilt.

Resource Reminders

Organizing my flickr galleries and sets has fallen to the waist-side.  It's such a great resource to save pictures I've seen especially with links to tutorials to refer to later but I just don't keep it up.  I've decided to start listing some on my blog so that I can remind myself where I read about an inspiring idea or fabric I want to buy.... Here are a few:
Partial Y seams
Left Turn Right Turn FMQ
Triangle in a Triangle
Serendipity Quilts Youtube video
Cherrywood Grab Bags

    Shop Hop recap still to come..

  5. Sounds like you need a pinterest account - it's a great way to keep track of all those tutorials/quilt inspiration ideas. Love your mosaic - so bright and summery and VERY inspiring!
