It’s summer and I bet y’all are out having fun and soaking up the sun, right? Unless your spending a couple of weeks in OKC like I am and it’s too dang hot to go outside! So I’m using my time wisely and preparing for our big show this September in Madison, WI. The Quilt Expo is only about a month and a half way and I should be grateful for the heat keeping me pent up inside because I have tons to do! I brought along all the makings for a quilt we will be kitting called ‘Rosalie’ made from all the new Art Gallery fabrics we recently received. My mom and I spent a few days making this and I gotta say…LOVE IT!

I’ll post the others as I get them finished. My next project is a Christmas quilt. Christmas in July. Maybe that will cool me down.

My mom always works on embroidery when she’s sittin’ around watching TV in the evenings. She’s made some really pretty tea towels lately.

Keep cool y’all and check back for more new quilts!

I’m sure some of you noticed the free patterns/tutorials button at the top of the blog. We also have a tab for that on sewmoddesigns.com if you happen to be on that site too. Over the next few months we are going to try to load some extras on there for you. What better thing to start off with than Halloween!

Paige drew up a spooky house

And I thought I’d add retro kitty to a giant pumpkin. She’s so sassy, isn’t she?

I usually cross stitch something for Halloween but didn’t have time this year. I’ll show you some of those projects next week. Embroidery work is so much faster for me to get done.  So, to get my Halloween fix on this year, I added retro kitty to a tea towel and used giant rick rack to embellish the bottom.

Now for my reward…the cupcake!

I’ve been working on some things this week. Cutting kits for the show, cutting fabrics, trying to come up with a cute baby quilt for the Hoo’s In The Forest line…but I swear, every time I get up or move from my spot, this is what is in front of me.

Guilt. She’s just too cute. I think this is her plan..and it’s working. I think that ball is permanently attached to her mouth!

I did manage to stitch up 2 tea towels for Paige. Retro Kitties.

He thinks he’s a cool cat and she’s teasing him…meow…pfft…as if:)

I hope you like ’em Paige!
