Show and tell...part 2

I'm still not sure what was happening with my pictures rotating.   I went back into "My Pictures" and tried to manually rotate them but it kept defaulting to the sideways view.  If you have any suggestions, let me know.

Today's pictures are my show and tell.

I'm still working on the little Buttermilk Basin "Sew" Simple BOMs.  

This one is August. 


June


and September. 


This is another little kit I got from Karen right after she returned 
from Quilt Market.  (Hopefully her Etsy site is up and running now).

It's called "Americana Basket" by My Red Door Designs


Continuing to make progress on these monthly Indygo Junction blocks 
by Sarah Sporrer. 



This cute flag quilt is a freebie on Cheri Payne's Facebook group.   


Stacy from Buttermilk Basin had this little pillow on her blog hop last year.  
I think it's still available for purchase.   


If you're on Instagram, you can identify with me on this...There is so much inspiration out there from so many talented people.   Around Memorial Day, people started posting pictures of all their wonderful Americana decor.  It was then I realized that I only had one red, white and blue quilt.   That had to change!  LOL    So,  I was looking through my books and came upon this pattern by Paula Stoddard from the book Season's Stitchin's.   The pattern is called "Summer Fun".  I got it finished just in time to enjoy it for the rest of the summer.   

The little firecrackers were a project that Sandy I made at her house last month 
on one of our "craft" days.

This is "America Stitched Flag" by Buttermilk Basin
(can you tell I'm trying to play catch up with the Americana decor?)


And last, another Buttermilk Basin design called "Summer Wool Runner".  
The pattern cover shows the background in black wool, but I thought it needed a lighter look.   


I'm not sure if I'll be at Woolies this month because the family is coming for a visit, so I'll probably see you in Sept.   Oh my gosh....Sept?    How can that be?   
Time really does fly when you're having fun!

Thanks for stopping by.   I know I don't blog as much anymore and I'm not even sure if anyone is visiting anymore, but I appreciate all of you who take time out of your day to stop by.  

Hugs, Anne

Wonderfulness! Your posts are always an event, so full of inspiration, and I admit, I get a little excited when I see a new entry from you in my sidebar. I pick a moment to view all the eye candy you post when nothing else is distracting me. I want to be able study and savor your entries. I can't tell you how many times I've dug back through your posts to look at something again or find a pattern title...so don't give up on us and stop sharing, cuz this girl hasn't given up on you!

Thank you for continuing to post your inspiring creations! They are all beautiful! Did you whip or buttonhole stitch the applique pieces of the Sarah Sporrer, Summer Glory Pattern?

Just want you to know that someone is reading your blog. I enjoy all your projects. And of course, I love wool too. Thanks for sharing.

Karen said...

From following your posts for a long time, I can see you are a big fan of Buttermilk Basin designs. Those little mini's are simple designs and I like the way they are displayed. Nicely done. I did the set of Sarah Sporer designs you are working on only I did them in the method she suggested. I do wish I had done needle turn applique. Yours are oh so nicely done.

Lori said...

So very sweet!

Debbie said...

I have been reading your blog and drooling for a long time over all your gorgeous pictures! I love the decorating and all the project pictures. I get ideas for projects just by visiting you and I love when you tell who's pattern it is-makes it easier to find if I want one! Please keep blogging when you can-I for one would miss you terribly!

Elaine said...

Always look forward to your posts!

Mrs Hanson said...

Please continue to blog as I love what you post and get lots of inspiration from looking!

Judy D in Upstate NY said...

Love reading your blog, I have been so inspired! I also made the Buttermilk Basin Summer table runner with a light background and made it into a wall hanging instead of a table runner. I wanted people to see it, not bury it under all my stuff on a table! Love all your projects!

Unknown said...
