Happy July 4th to my American friends!
There are some new projects starting in quilt land if you're in the mood for something new. I love starting new quilting projects and it's especially hard to resist when projects are scrappy because I probably have everything I need to make it. I wouldn't have to buy anything and could use up more "deep stash" (the old stuff). But I really want to work on the projects that I am in the middle of because I like them and want to see them become finished, useable quilts. So I am trying really hard to resist new starts at the moment. I tell myself that time is a finite resource, and I'm not going to live forever.
It's especially hard to resist these three projects because I LOVE mystery quilts.
But YOU ... maybe YOU have a vacation coming up and don't have any plans except to sew and relax. Here are some fun projects to consider:
Alycia is starting a new Quilt of Valor mystery on July 5th. She says that each weekly clue will take you one hour to sew and you'll have a finished quilt before you know it!
Sherri at A Quilting Life is hosting a scrappy sew along based on one of her grandmother's quilts. It will be a full sized scrappy quilt made of larger pieces. Two steps have already been posted so it's not to late to join in.
Kevin has started a mystery quilt called Sapphire Stars. It will be 70" x 90" and designed to use up colour groupings of scraps. Clue #1 has already been posted and future steps will use the tri-recs rulers.
