July Round Up & Fresh Sewing Day


 I accomplished more than I could have hoped for this month!  Here's a look at my list of items to finish for July:
  • Make a baby quilt from the kit I bought on clearance at JoAnn's-nothing too special, but it should be a quick finish and make room on my shelf. --FINISHED
  • Finish nursing covers-I'm trying to get everything ready for Little Miss's arrival.  These most likely would have already been done if I could find boning anywhere.--FINISHED!
  • Receiving Blankets-these have already been cut to the proper size, they just need seams on the edges.--FINISHED but no pic, whoops!
  • Family Tree Baby Blanket-top is pieced, just need to buy the backing, basted, quilt and bind. --FINISHED (except for embroidering the names on)
  • Boo Crew Quilt-Just needs binding.--FINISHED
  • Headbands-they each just need one, little seam to be completed.--FINISHED
  • Riley Blake Halloween Quilt-my oldest WIP and the second quilt I ever started.  I need to finish piecing the back, then just baste, quilt and bind!--FINISHED
  • New Wedding Quilt (not to be confused with the Dreaded Wedding Quilt)-again, this quilt isn't really my style, but at least the design is so much simpler than the previous one!  The top is almost complete...a trip to the fabric store and we should be good to go :)--FINISHED and delivered
I also managed to finish three quilts that weren't on my list as well as a pillow cover, two Lucky Stars blocks, curtains, pj pants for Squeak and his doll, 5 In From the Cold blocks, and the cutting of the fabrics for the Stars Surround QAL.  I'm still way behind on most of my BOMs but hopefully that will start to change.

My goals for the month of August are:

  • Finish my Giant Swoon Quilt top
  • Make the tops of the new quilts for the nursery (I'm thinking 2 boy, 2 girl)
Not exactly lofty goals but maybe this way I'll be able to get them done!

Linking up with A Lovely Year of Finishes.


  1. When do we get a new belly pic?

  2. Wowza! You were busy - great job on all the finishes :o)

  3. You got a ton done! way to go. I'd like to see the giant swoon when it's done.

  4. I'm new here but it sounds like you are nesting in a major way! That is a lot to get done in one month. I love that little dachsund quilt in the second photo of the first mosaic!
