I bought myself a back for this baby quilt and it is full of lambs. Ahh, lambs for babies. @keansstoreco #eadsquilt #eadsqal #babyquilt

I had handwork time this weekend too. I'm enjoying the very slow process of adding #appliquΓ© diamonds to this resist dyed top. #indigo

First block of #eadsquilt. I am not sure I have a quilt's worth of paper piecing in me, but I already printed double the amount I need so... 😬. I'm taking it to guild retreat next weekend. Here goes! #eadsqal

The back stoop plants. So succulent. Also, a fig leaf. I'm in charge of keeping all the plants alive this week. Thank goodness it's been rainy. 🌱

Gorgeous flowers from @swallowtail_farm_mi at the #eastlansingfarmersmarket. I love the little feverfew!

Beach cart! So important. This one is not even near fully loaded. Had a wonderful visit at home on the Jersey Shore with friends and family. #beachcart

My finished mini mini quilt for the #a2mqgminiminiswap. The one I got is fabulous. I need to find a moment to get a pic. #a2mqg #mqg

I came home to this pie made by my girl, as discussed. One of the good things about summer is the appearance of more baked goods, and they're not baked by me.

Turns out appliquΓ© pins are pretty great for appliquΓ©. #indigo

I made some half-square triangles this weekend. Glad to have @jenib320's book around as a reference! #halfsquaretriangles #patchwork

A second #shirtno1. This is in Alison Glass that was on super $3/yd sale at my LQS. To no one's surprise, the quilting cotton does not drape so well. #100actsofsewing

Friends' patio table top made from collected beer bottle caps. It feels like a quilt, especially how the colors start looping but are improved by needing to make do when they run out.

Baby swan babies. And kinda angry parents. #lakeday

Shirt No 1 from #100actsofsewing in a nicely drapey, if shiny, fabric I got on a vacation. I will make this pattern again because it will make good summer work shirts. Nice one @sonyaphilip! #shirtno1

Slow, sunny morning. Pulling out the fabric I dyed late last summer to get a bug to actually do something with it. #indigo #naturaldye

Gray morning soft shorts. I made these stripey tiger #citygymshorts for Eva. The back and waistband fabric is a double gauze leftover that seemed just meant for this project. #purlsohobusyhands

A string-ish quilt for a baby. I'm pretty pleased that the top is entirely made of scraps from my overflowing blue scrap box.
