Welcome Blog Hoppers! Whoosh!! This summer flew by, it seems like only yesterday that school was out and summer camp was in session. Now it is time to pick apples and to think about canning the summer’s harvest. I was very busy longarm quilting for my wonderful clients, but not so busy that I couldn’t work on my own projects.
I also worked on my ‘Quilting Bucket List’ and completed a Log Cabin quilt. I designed the quilt using EQ7 and used only scraps to complete it. Do you have patterns or quilts on your ‘bucket’ list?
“Long May She Wave” is a quilt using improvisational curves. I cut fabric using various curved rulers then joined them using bias tape. It was so much fun to sit and play. The colors of the quilt will always remind me of summer–July 4, strawberries, blueberries, sunshine…
I loved using the very wonderful Riley Blake Design fabrics in the ‘His’ and ‘Hers’ Place Mats which I designed for today’s post. The ‘his’ place mat features mustache fabric, also Riley Blake Designs, and the ‘hers’ place mat features dimensional flowers made of yo-yo’s and gathered flowers. I quilted them with my walking foot using a decorative stitch (‘hers’–serpentine with a loop) and channel stitching (‘his’). I used the large red and white gingham from Riley Blake for the backing and small black and white gingham for the binding.
I hope you have made projects and memories over the summer too. Thank you Mdm. Samm and Shari. Please visit the other ‘See you in September’ bloggers listed below and have a quilty day!!

Your log cabin quilt is wonderful, that would also be a project on my to-do-list, which is now filling more than a library, I think.
Beautiful table toppers!

Cute, cute. I always intend to make placemats and never seem to get them done. Great idea to make them His and Hers!!
Log cabins never go out of style, and yours is beautiful.
Love both of those quilts! Log cabin was the first block that I ever made and it’s still one of my favorites. Love the placemats…. the gingham makes them pop!
Clever idea for the gingham in the Patriotic Beauty! Love all your beautiful projects!
Fun projects. Really like Long May She Wave…anything with curves!
LOL I have way too many things on my bucket list. I have even had to separate them by project. Front room, Daughter, Kitchen, Son, etc.
Lovely projects. Thanks for sharing
Wonderful summer memories, thanks for sharing!
Beautiful quilts. Ahhhh, red, white and black, my favorite color combination … how could I not love your placemats.
Cute, cute placemats.! I love them. And of course red, white, and blue anything is my favorite. I am envious of anyone who makes a log cabin quilt. I hate making log cabin blocks. They always turn out wonky no matter what method I use and they are sooo boring to make. Great job!
I’m lovin’ those placemats. The flowers are just too cute.
Pretty quilts. The place mats are so cute.
