Fresh Sewing Day and WIP Wednesday

I can't believe it's July already! That means it's hot and humid enough here in NJ (most days) to have a very valid excuse to sit inside and sew. :) I am lucky to have a great air conditioner in our living room area but it's right next to my sewing area, which makes for a very cold sewist. I can often be seen in pajamas with fuzzy socks and a cardigan or hoodie on as I sew away (and watch season 5 of Parks and Recreation).

The Lantern quilt has a background of Kona Purple, which is much darker than it's photographing... hm.


Anyway, this week, I'm rushing to finish my Good Fortune lantern quilt, which is on my FAL (Finish-A-Long) Quarter 2 list (the linky just opened!). I have 4 more days to finish it; quilting should be done today and then I'll bind either tonight or tomorrow. Maybe I'll have a finish post on Friday?

In terms of the month that has passed, I'm very happy with all that I got done!
  • I curated the My Favorite Quilt series at Sew Mama Sew for the month. It was a lot of extra work but I really enjoyed working with SMS and all of the fabulous featured bloggers. I hope everyone enjoyed reading interviews about the favorite quilts!


  • I got my Progressive Quilt back! I'm going to get to this one soon, but there are a couple of other quilts that need to be backed and quilted first. I'm thinking about submitting it to QuiltCon.
  •  I started the Supernova Friendship Swap with Karin! More on that soon - I still need to share Karin's block and the block for July.

Okay, so bring on July! It's going to be a productive month on the sewing front!


  1. That purple background looks Amazing with the Good fortune. Lovely work!

  2. Sounds like a great month Jess. I'm throwing white towel as I'm not able to make any more finishes for Q2. Never mind. There is always Q3 right :-D

  3. You are one busy bee! I'm really hoping to get some orange peeling done, but I have to be realistic about my time in the summer when the kiddos are gone. And I can't say enough good things about the My Favorite Quilt series. Your work was so worth it. It was such a great read and a peek into the minds of some of my favorite quilters. I'm hoping to see lots more of you soon!

  4. Yaaay you're almost done! Hurry with the binding! Every time I see one of your curved piecing I hope you're making the moon phase quilt, I still think about it all the time...might have to make one of my own... DO submit that quilt! I would love to see it again all quilted and grown up!


Let's start a conversation! I love comments and I'd be happy to reply to all who have an email address accessible. Thanks for commenting!
