Okay “joyous” was the best adjective I could find that started with J. My alliteration skills were failing me. I had to use my googlefu.
But it was a pretty joyous month! I feel like I got a lot accomplished. I finished three quilts! Okay none of them are bigger than lap size quilts but still, that’s three quilts! Woo! And of course nothing happened unless there are pictures so here’s a little mosaic. (Oh I used Pic Monkey to make this – I like it better than Mosaic Maker!)
And of course, some blog links if you’re interested to read about some of the projects.
1 & 2. Find the Red Herring quilt here, and pattern and tutorial here. I’m a bit excited to see that people have started making some of their own! They look so great!

Whew! That’s quite a run down for the month. And it' doesn’t stop there. Well the projects do, but I scored something big big BIG. My awesome parents bought me a surprise gift. It’s possible I may have been rambling to them about quilting because frankly, my children don’t listen (well they are only 4 and 2). Well, it turns out my parents were listening! And paid great attention and ordered this as a surprise for me!!
Oh my goodness I think I nearly hyperventilated with excitement. This has been on my wish list for such a long time but waaayyy out of my budget. I honestly just chalked it up as one of those love-to-have-probably-never-will items. But it turns out I have the best parents in the world. Seriously. Totally worth all that love and time and effort I put into their giant Queen size quilt I made earlier this year. ;) So that’s my big share for Sunday Stash – which is over at Finding Fifth. I’m feeling very spoilt!
And to add to the stash - gorgeous Fiona sent me a charm pack of Summersville. I'm currently planning a little design for it using my new program. Catching up with Fiona next weekend - I believe paper piecing lessons are in order. :)
Well on that happy note, I think I shall go and figure out what fun project I’m going to take to quilt group this afternoon. Decisions decisions!
