Summertime part 4...Lots and lots of sewing!

What does one do when she is a quilter having a kinda hard summer?? Why she quilts!!! and quilts!! AND QUILTS!!! I am working on three, count em, three BOMs. There is my paper doll quilt that is oh so bright and lovely. Why it is sideways I do not know. sigh...blogger.

I am more then halfway done with this one.
No I don't know who it is going to even though both of my daughters ask me every day. I just keep telling them that it is ours. Not that sharing it is an option. sigh. Sisters.

This one I am doing is a wonderful Baltimore Album. I love the colors. All browns...golds...greens....deep reds...yellows.
Siiiiiiigh. Browns and golds and greens. Ahhhhh.

I am also working on the Be attitudes BOM quilt. I have just a little work to do on some of the blocks and one whole block to finish and then I can sew it together. No, I don't know who this one is for either. I think I just might hang it up so I can sit in front of it and lose myself in the blocks. To say I am loving working on this one would be a yep, understatement. This one is a ball!

My good friend Jen sent out some Christmas gifts early this year as she is very busy doing important, private things in Nov and Dec. She made this one for me. Yeah, she knows me well cause this table runner is absolutely gorgeous! And yes, it is on my table. I will not be waiting for December to put it out. I like looking at it and don't want to wait for the holidays to enjoy it.

Hope every one else is having a quilty summer!

I can solve all your problems.... Just send ME all the quilts. :D

I love the paper doll one. Sooooooo cute! And such a neat idea for a quilt.

Keep sewing girl! I love to see all your hard work!

Oh, Dawn, you have some beautiful projects going! Are you hand buttonholing the appliques?

Mrs. Goodneedle said...

I answer similar questions all the time... "who is that one for"?... it only comes in second to this one: "How soon will you be finished with that one"? ;)

Lovely work on each and every one, Dawn. I, too, am working on the Be Attitudes. I don't know who it's for or when it will be finished, just in case anyone was wondering!
