My August

I'm way too late to be linking my August up but I thought I'd sum it all up anyway.

The first half was all about Bee Blocks and I was intrigued by Nicky's choice of a Nordik theme with no prescriptive design or size. I came up with these blocks.
Nicky also started planning ahead for her quilts for Siblings Together and asked me if I thought the ladies in my classes might like to help out with a block or two - they certainly did and the first batch went off to her last week.

I have another pile waiting to go and happy to accept more.

I made a start on a little baby quilt, more pram sized really - it was inspired by Hadley's quilt that was featured in last month's Quilt Now. I cut the tumblers using my Accuquilt Go.

All my classes are now underway with their Modern Sampler and I made some blocks in my new colourway.

And on the last day of August I held my Christmas in August workshop - this was a challenging session of foundation piecing with a cushion as the final goal. The pattern was Not So Spring Deer from Julianna at Sewing Under Rainbow. Julianna graciously agreed to me using her pattern in my workshop. All the ladies made excellent progress and here is one of the finished cushion fronts - made by Audrey. Isn't it stunning!

I have made a great start to September but will keep that for another day!


  1. WTG all, especially on that deer!

  2. wow! lovely collection of work there!

  3. Pretty Bee blocks, and your student made an amazing colour choice for the stag, but very effective.

  4. What a block-filled August you've had! Your classes are so generous with their charity blocks - bravo, ladies! (I'm assuming they're all ladies, apologies if I'm wrong!)

  5. Such beautiful makes, and that deer is just stunning!

  6. Am overwhelmed by the generosity of you and your ladies!

    Love the deer!
