Fresh Sewing Day

Considering I was out of town for about a third of August, I'm pretty pleased with what I got done. Of course there was the normal assortment of City Sampler and bee blocks. And though they were all fun and interesting in their own way, I think my favorites are the "Space Dust" block in the mosaic center (CS #39) and that last one - the Patchwork, Please envelope block.
1. Block 40, 2. Block 41, 3. Block 42, 4. Modern Maple block, 5. Block 39, 6. Block 38, 7. Block 37, 8. x and + blocks, 9. Palace Steps block, 10. improv arrow blocks, 11. block #1

Four of my other project finishes were with the Patchwork, Please sew along. I especially enjoyed the envelope wall hanging, and am enjoying having it hang next to my sewing machine where I can make use of it every day. 

My Tinker Tote has been fun to use, and it was one of the most satisfying finishes of the month. Though I am pretty happy to have my Modern Maples quilt done too, in plenty of time for fall. All in all, it's been another good month to sew.
