It's Sooo Hot....

It has been so hot and so typical Kansas City in July!  I am not certain what has kept me away from the blog but I am still here and I've been sewing!  I feel like I have sewing A.D.D.  I have been great about starting projects but not that great about finishing.  Sometimes I do better than others.  I started sewing this together 

I got a few rows done but then got this project

and it is not yet finished either!  I took a class from one of my favorite people, Jacquie Gering while she was in KC and began this "SuperNova' wall hanging from her book "Quilting Modern".
Moving on......................................

It was time to start a project for July in the My Precious QAL on Flickr.  I decided to use these precious fabrics..................a little Tula Pink oldie but goodie!

Which will soon turn into these;

This is the Thimble Blossoms pattern called Spools.  Can't wait to see this one done.

This morning I finished up a cover for my machine.  I have had the "Cover Up" pattern from Empty Bobbin Sewing Studio sitting on my machine for months and months.  Carol posted photos of her Cover Up on the KCMQG Facebook page and I decided I needed to get one done for my machine.  The dust that gets into my machine cannot be helpful!  So I have managed to finish this project.

I love it! and so does my Bernina.

For future projects I got these goodies.....I am absolutely in love with Riley Blake's Ombre DOTS!  They are big dots.  I got these from the idontdodishes etsy shop owned by fellow KCMQG'r Caitlin McIntyre.

I have a project in mind for these...........coming soon  And another bit of fabric that graced my mailbox this week.....

I love this bright orange and gray together.  I have a plan for these two also!  No shortage of ideas around here, just need to make these weekends a little longer.

I'll be back soon with a few more finishes and a few less starts!!


  1. You are so productive, Paula! I need to be as disciplined as you are. Thanks for continuing to share your creations - you know that I love to see what you're up to!

  2. Amen to all that! The heat, the sewing ADD....... I've been sewing quite a bit lately, but have not touched my blog in weeks. I'm pathetic.
