Oh my, there's lots going on in blog-land right now! First and foremost, the Summer Sewing Contest over at Ellison Lane Quilts closes for entries today, so consider entering some of your recent finishes if you haven't already!

I entered my Hopscotch in the quilt category, my Logo Card Holder in bags & accessories, and daughter dear's sewing machine cover in home decor. Can't beat taking a chance at some great prizes!

I just saw notice of the 100 Quilts for kids event sponsored by Katie at Swim, Bike, Quilt. I participated last year and was able to donate one finished quilt and one quilt top with backing and binding to our local Project Linus. So I hope to join in again this year.

And finally, what's this about Christmas?? Yikes! Not really ready to think about that, but Elizabeth of Don't Call Me Betsy is sponsoring a Christmas in July blog hop, so I'll definitely be following that and maybe, maybe doing some sewing along.

I also wanted to show off the lovely quilts Alecia just finished up for the FAITH Circle of do.Good Stitches. I made a gray zig-zag strip as my contribution.

And here are the finished quilts! Sweet, yes? These zig-zag quilts were our April project, and Alecia's post about them is here

And, I got my Japanese x and + swap blocks in the mail yesterday. I think I have 28 blocks now! I need to get them all out and take a shot of them all together. Sure hope there's a round three in this swap!

Lastly, I'm not really one to talk on and on about how many followers I have, but can I just make a comment that I think 300 is a very very nice number? All thanks to you.


  1. Well, I managed to enter something in each of the three categories for the summer sewing contest as well. Good luck to us! hehe I'd love some of those awesome prizes.

    The x+ blocks, remind me, are these for you to keep or are these for a do.good.stitches quilt?

    I just squeaked past 200 followers, and I think it's worth noting - your 300 as well. I try not to obsess over it, but it is fun to see those nice round numbers. :)

  2. Congrats on the followers, and good luck on the contest - I love all your projects. The x and + blocks re looking so fun.

  3. Hi Debbie! You make so beautiful things! I love the quilt and the organizer and the sewing machine cover with the grannies and... you see! Good luck and congratulations! x Teje
