August Projects

Texas Truffle... in the chocolat line by 3 Sisters I had the kit for this quilt for a whole year before I dared to attempt it...then in 2008 I braved it. At one point I was so confused when I came to assemble my blocks that the prayers for guidance were flowing so loud, my husband came in the sewing room wondering who I was talking to. I am not too sure I can take the credit for putting it all together! ... it is my favourite!

This was only my second attempt at appliqué... but with one step at a time and four corners to do, the challenge became a wonderful experience!

Now; for my UFO and August projects in the Charming Girls Quilt Club .... #1....I want to make pillow shams to match the Texas Truffle, because it is one project I don't want to keep in the "Quilt Cupboard"!

#2 ....And I want to completely finish my Vintage Rose...quilted and binded....... #3...The next one I plan to finish is one that has been in my UFO basket for over a year and I am now excited about finishing it. I call it "My Sister's Star" as it is my sister who designed this pattern. This project is the first one I did using the Charm Packs. ... and I haven't looked back since!

The fabric I am using is Tamarack Grove By Holly Taylor ( another of my favourite designers)
I don't anticipate I will be sewing or blogging a lot this week... Company is arriving for the big day Saturday...but the sewing machine will be up and running next week ...and so will the posting of my son's wedding........
