Mix Assortment

I've been jumping from one project to the next today.

I have been working away for Scrap Basket Sunday...
the quilt above is one my cousin made. I had her send it to me
so I could finish it for her... she is an excellent seamstress and has
made baby quilts, purses etc... but this one got a little out of hand.
I had to take off the borders and put them on again to get it to lye flat.
I made the backing and gave it to the quilter earlier this week...
and got it back on Friday so I could add the binding. I will finish the handwork
in the evening and the binding on another little quilt as well.

But this is the one I was anxious to put together...

It's from Simply Retro and something I am working on in a sew along group.
I have the blocks all completed and now I just need to sew the rows!!!
I will have it done this week for sure... and then be on to my next quilt in
Camille's book!

I did get my Fat Quarter Shop block of the month "Deck-ade" cut out
but haven't sewn it together yet... but it's a good start... I will set it next to my machine and steal
a few minutes here and there and have it done in no time!
So that's how I am ending the month of June...
What have you been up to?

Love the projects you've been working on! I'd like to see more of the one your cousin started too--it looks really pretty! Will you show it after you get the binding finished?

Your scrap basket Sundays have inspired me to do at least a little bit of work on unfinished projects or scrap projects EVERY Sunday. I started today and even though I was tired, I made time to finish up a few blocks and even convinced myself to leave everything nice and tidy for the week to come! Thanks for the inspiration. ~~Ashley at Quilted Affair

Your quilt from the quilt along looks great Sinta! Can't wait to see it done. :-)

ooh... taking apart and fixing someone elses quilt? You are a saint. Or.. a very good friend! LOL!

I met a woman named Sinta at the Oakhurst show - she was the featured artist. Is that you?

I really love your cousin's quilt and your Simply Retro quilt is stunning too. Just thought I would let you know is all.
