New Projects:

I started one new project -- a quilt for Moda Bake Shop that will be published in the early part of August. I am actually ahead of schedule with this project and the quilt might be finished in July.

Here's what I'm planning to work on in July:

1. Finish July IBA baby quilt
2. Coast to Coast Bee blocks for Audrey and Stash Bee blocks for Mom/Lori (yes, my mom and I are in the same hive!)
3. Complete quilt top for Moda Bake Shop Quilt
4. Finish binding on Alison Glass sampler (this week!)

I am also excited to share that the Meadow Mystery QAL Kona specials are now live!

The throw bundle contains 4.25 yards of Kona for $26 + flat rate shipping. The queen bundle contains 7 yards of Kona for $42 + flat rate shipping. We are currently offering the bundles in 10 different colors:

Don't delay -- this special will only run until the end of July! If you're interested in a color that we don't currently have listed as part of the bundle special, send us a message on Etsy and we can see what we can do!


  1. You are making amazing progress on your projects this year. I am excited to see how the Coast to Coast quilts wrap up. :)

  2. Wow, that's a lot of projects to be juggling. I assume you are not actively working on all of them presently. I'm afraid to make a list of mine. Some of them are semi-abandoned, though, and may not ever see the light of day. LOL

  3. Be proud of your accomplishments and progress you have made. You remind me of my best friend, she puts me to shame with the amount of quilting she does. Keep up the good work. Happy Quilting :)

  4. You did a great job in moving things along in June. Hope July is even more productive for you.
