Pumpkin Patch OMG

I've had this kit for placemats and table runner for years, so I think it's about time to sew them. I won't say that I will have them quilted and bound (although, that would be nice), but since it is still Summer, I am just committing to the tops being done.

A completed Quilt top.

Finished this Dash in the Box quilt top. This was my July OMG and I'm glad to say that I completed it. I enjoyed sewing this quilt top and I think it is kind of unique.

I want to have this quilted and bound in Fall for a Birthday present for my son. He moved into a new house and I thought he could use a new quilt for his couch.

Dash in the Box Quilt Top

Trying to finish this Dash in the Box quilt top for my July OMG goal.

The blocks are completed, but they've sat in a box for a while. I always have too many projects going. I really do need to get the quilt top pieced together. I would like to have the quilt fully completed in the Fall because I plan on giving it to my son for his Birthday in November.

During these Summer months, I don't get a lot of sewing done, so I think piecing the quilt top is a realistic goal for July. I am linking to July OMG at Elm Street Quilts

Baggalista.......Finally Done

It seems like this bag took me forever! I've been working on this since the beginning of May. This is the back of the bag with a flap that lifts up. There is a pocket on each side with a zipper for my phone.

This is the front of the bag. I use paper-pieced blocks from Quiltmaker's 100 Blocks  

For the lining, I used fabric called "Scented". It actually does smell like lavender, not real strong. The only time I smelled it real strong was when I was ironing it. I thought it would be nice for a lining of a bag to keep it nice and fresh. This is a nice bag and I will enjoy carrying it, especially since it took me a Coon's age to complete!

I am posting my finished June project to June OMG at Elm Streets Quilt .
This was My original post for my June goal (plus My May goal!). Yeah! Now I can move on to something else.

I, also, completed a bag for Sadie's Dream for a Cure I thought it turned out kind of cute. I mailed this a couple of weeks ago to them.

If you want to complete a bag for this great cause, you can participate by going to their website above. Little kids going through trials need a little bit of kindness in their life.
