Welcome to this week's sewing round up!
|just playing with the units before adding geese units|
I made two art quilts from some improv blocks made a year ago, plus lots more pieces sewn in! The mountain piece is a finished top waiting for quilting. The leftovers from that, plus improv flying geese units turned into the table runner above.

I did a lot of quilting on this, and pulled the border to the back and hand stitched it in place for an edge treatment.

I put the little quilt above on Thursday's post in detail, but mention it here as I found this little table top stand this week, and put this on my cutting table as inspiration. It's all painted on white muslin, with blue sparkly borders.
Ending the month in purple are some wine bottles for that project. I like them!
I looked through some of my books this week, for a quick summer project, and decided on the little beach cabanas with blue snail's trail blocks...
I didn't realize the block was just 2.5" so it was very tedious and the scraps needed to be higher contrast and less patterned. Live and learn and move on.The centers are 1.5" 4 patches... but I did get to use a lot of leftover tiny triangles out of the scrap box.
I just jumped in without realizing how small they were. I do not want to make more so I'll fill in with some cute water prints under the houses.
I also pulled out two painted pink flower tops ready to quilt so watch for those!
I've watched a few videos on The Quilt Show this week, and more on making art and painting. It's all good for creativity!
have a cookie before you go... made from my fave chocolate chip oatmeal recipe, with chopped pecans added in this time
