What's Up Monday & Get-R-Done Update

July 1st already, half the year has past.
Where I live we are having below average temps, 82 today. That is almost unheard of, normally it's in the 90's and humid.
Loving it and means I'm spending a lot of time outside and not that much in the sewing room. I know it will not last and I'll be back to the sewing room when it's too hot to be out.

What's up on the wall is one of my RSC13. I'm a couple months behind and this is Aprils color orange. Still have blue, yellow and this months teal to do. I know what I want to make, it's just doing it.

This months (April) baby quilt I made fabric from scraps and then on a piece of fusible interfacing I drew a circle on the plain side.
I put the fusible side next to right side of the fabric and stitch on the  circle I drew. Trim the circle and made an opening in the fusible to turn it inside out

Try to push out the edge as much as you can to make the circle round.

I have mine pinned on till I'm ready to press them onto the background. I have been playing around with placement and I think it look fine, so I'll press them down. You can stitch them down anyway you want but I'll do that when I'm quilting it.

Now for July's Get-R-Done.
Last month I did not post a list but I was able to get a couple tops completed that would've been on the list.

My Christmas Plaid Strip Quilt (top done)


and Candy Wrapper quilt (top)
now I'm calling it done because I'll be finished putting on the border this evening.

Candy Wrapper quilt came from this book.

Now to this months 4

1. Work on my Some Kind of Wonderful 

2. Lemoyne Star Chain 

3. Finish quilting my daughters quilt

4. Pea Ridge Lily, will have all the block prepped for appliqueing and a good portion of them done.

Ambitious list, but I expect it to get hot, so I should get a lot of sewing time in.


  1. Thanks for showing how to do those circles.

  2. Love those circles, especially that you've used so many bits and pieces! And your Christmas plaid is gorgeous. How I love plaids! Heck, all your quilts are wonderful!


Welcome friends to share a thought, I enjoy reading them and will try my best to reply back by email most of the time. But if you do not hear back it's because you are a no-reply blogger.
