Wow, what a month!

It’s been a busy and fulfilling, also crazy bonkers, few weeks.

There was the end of Brownies: All the random activities my co-leader and I kinda pulled out of our heads and off the internet since January actually translated into some badges! We were surprised, and utterly pleased with ourselves.

We made some hat traders as year-end gifts for the girls.

School ends tomorrow. Both my girls had great teachers this year but especially W. She wanted to make something for her teacher so I suggested a pillow. The favourite colour is pink and the favourite animal is a moose, so here you have a pink moose pillow.

The glamour shot.

The flat shot. All fabrics chosen by W, laid out and assembled by her. (I did the rows, border, and appliqué.)

A close up of the appliqué because I frickin hate appliqué like this but I think I kinda rocked it.

And in my personal sewing journey, I finished my improv string quilt. I used the leftovers to make this quilt:

The setting squares and background fabrics are both from stash. Quilt measures 53×72. Pattern is the “June Quilt Along Quilt” from Crazy Mom Quilts.

I also started my next quilt in my Sherri Lynn Woods Improv project. This one is the “floating Squares” score. I’m using long hoarded yukata cottons from Okan Arts.

Work continues to be stupid busy mixed with corporate bs, so that’s nuts too.

Canada Day is Monday which is the real start of my summer. Here’s to a good one!

  1. That pillow turned out so nicely! I am sure the teacher will really appreciate it. If not, send it to me! I look forward to seeing your improv. I like the fabrics you are using for it.

  2. Nicole: You are making some awesome fabric choices in your quilts. The June quilt along has wonderful blues and I really like those fun fabrics in the floating squares quilt. I’m sorry about the corporate b.s. but hopefully you can survive it and that pillow is so great . I understand about the applique as well I have similar feelings.
