SSQSG meeting for July

One of the reasons I came back to AZ early was to have the opportunity to meet with my SSQSG.  What started out as a sewing bee has become a warm, enjoyable meeting of friends to talk about life and share our individual works.  Since we met at TOWQS this month, it was also time to get in a little retail therapy!

I will direct you to Merumo's blog to catch up on all her projects...
 and then I would love to share
 Lin's (no blog) work for the month.  
Loved this scrappy double 4-patch and must add some of that red border fabric to my stash!
A Quilter Lives Here by Liberty Homestead
I should have taken a close up pic of the fabulous machine quilting.
Made using Jo Morton fabrics and the hand-dyed, sueded cottons from Liberty Homestead.
Her full sized version of Grandpap's Cards.
The setting fabric is from Bonnie Blue reads grey, but is a small pattern of blue and brown.  I'm thinking it would  be a good choice of setting fabric for my Farmer's Wife blocks.
Just love her version!  Do you think she will trade...her's is quilted and bound!!!

I brought home a few pieces of Jo Morton's new Sweet Emilie line.
Perfect nuetrals for the HST units in my Pinwheels for Caroline.

Mother Nature has blessed us with a marvelous, drenching rain this morning...
a good day to sew.  My goal will be to make a few R&W blocks first and then play with my new pretties.  What will you play at today?


  1. Thanks for sharing these beautiful quilts.
    I hope to sew some hst together today. It is slow going - Other bloggers talk about spending the afternoon stitching, but mine gets done a few minutes or an hour here and there.
    Enjoy your day.

  6. Be still my heart, such lovely projects and fabric. You have me searching for it already. I agree that our sewing circles become very important to us - for many reasons, and not just sewing.

  7. Those are all beautiful quilts.....I'm so drawn to the little houses quilt, and I've never been fond of the house block....but this one just sings! Love it!

  8. All good quilts. I think I like the house quilt best.

  9. LOVE all of the quilts! and I think I need some of the Jo Morton Emilie fabric...very pretty!!

  11. All darling quilts - thank you for sharing.

  12. The ladies in your quilting circle certainly are talented. Love the name of the Liberty Homestead pattern. Might have to look for that one. I'm a day behind in answering your question about what what I'm playing at today but I've been working on pincushions!

  13. Be still my heart! Love them all! I always say can't go wrong with Jo!

  14. These are lovely quilts! Enjoy your time :-) I may do some hand sewing on a binding or start a new quilt.

  15. When it rains, it's a good day for playing in your sewing room. I'll be working today. I love the mini 4 patch quilt, but then I love them all.

  16. Thanks for sharing these beautiful quilts Cheryl, they are an inspiration. Love the House blocks quilt! A gorgeous setting for those little blocks!!!
