July sewing with Sandy

I didn’t do this post in July because Sandy played hookey from Woolies and went to Seattle to a baseball game.   Priorities!  So, anyway, we had our show ‘n tell this past Tuesday when the Woolies met.  
This was my month to pick the projects and they are an ode to Karen.  2 of the projects came from her nest.    Sandy and I visited Karen and her Red Farmhouse in May and had a wonderful time.   Her sewing nest is beyond believable.   Shopping in her nest was so much fun and we certainly did some major damage to our bank accounts!  
I’m going to have to gather all my pictures and do a post of our Minnesota visit.   The pictures don’t do her house justice at all.  It’s beyond gorgeous.  
As always, Sandy’s projects are first and mine second.  
This first one is a pattern that we both picked up on our Minnesota quilt shop hop that Karen took us on.   We got it at Gruber’s Quilt Store.   It’s called “Antique Churn Dash” by Grandma Shirley’s Quilts
I got this pink fabric from Karen’s shop and all the little churn dashes are using Stacy’s, (Buttermilk Basin) new fabric line called “Humble Beginnings”.   It’s darling fabric.  
Next up is a little gem from My Red Door designs called “Springtime”.   It was a little kit that Karen had made up and we both fell in love with it and had to have it.  
Karen loaned us the pattern for this next one because the designer is no longer in business.    It’s called “Blessings to Land of Free Angel” by Primitive Blessings by Twigs and Sprigs. 
Here’s Karen’s which got us both excited to add it to our list.  
This is Sandy’s
and here’s mine.
And last, by not least, is our monthly “Basin Banners Thru the Year” (Sept) by Buttermilk Basin.
So, that’s it for July.  We still plan to do our August show ‘n tell on the 25th, so I’ll see you in a couple of weeks.  
If you’ve asked me a question on my blog posts and I haven’t gotten back to you it’s because you are a “no reply” commenter.   Send me an email at and I’ll be sure and answer!  
Hugs, Anne

The churn dash quilts are my favorite this month. Are you planning another round of projects next year?

I look forward to your posts. Love your work. You seem to get sew much done. Having a sewing buddy to motivate you must help. Looking forward to August finishes.
