While I’m never entirely thrilled for the end of the ‘lazy’ time of year, I must admit – my brain has come to welcome the swish of a broom that fall brings for clearing out summer’s cobwebs. The time has arrived for organizing, tidying and finishing up – and I’m ready! Before Fall officially swoops in though: A big finish to share.
Have you been following along with our Summertime Sew Along project over at Instagram?
All summer long, I’ve been posting the blocks I’ve been leisurely creating with our Summertime scrappy bundle (of which we have just a few left). The patterns are a compilation created by 30 designers of Moda Fabrics from a few years back called the Sampler Block Shuffle, and they became such a perfect choice for a simple summer project that didn’t involve a lot of heavy thinking. The blocks are just 6″ (finished) each and my finished quilt measures 44 1/2″ x 52 1/2″.
I’m off to get a million things done today, but I wanted you to know that all the blocks and assembly instructions are now available over at the Sew Along Page. Along with my (Summertime Simple) assembly instructions, I’ve also included Moda’s variation assembly which sets the blocks on point and incorporates a flying geese outside border.
I promise to leave the page up for those that may need a little extra time to finish their projects, or might want to embark upon it from the start, somewhere down the pike.
Happy Fall, friends. Now that Labor Day has passed and summer is pretty much behind us – I wish you welcomed structure, hoping we’ll both accomplish great things this Fall!
PS – I forgot to mention that I had a little extra fun quilting my project on my favorite sewing tool, that’s been pleasantly humming in the Woods for the past year: Our Gammill Statler Stitcher Long Arm machine. Below is a snippet of the design I chose, since nothing says summertime like flowers, bees and butterflies for nurturing creative souls.
