Summer Catch-Up

What a busy summer it has been! 
The weather has been very beautiful, despite a few hail storms, one of which damaged the siding on our garage, but at least the mosquitoes have been minimal this year!
We have had lots of company this month, but I did manage (between company visiting) to get some sewing done.

I caught up on my "Freebie 15" blocks...
July's Freebie 15 block: "Tidal Pool"

July's Freebie 15 Companion block: "Starfish"

August Freebie 15 block: "Whirlpool"

August Freebie 15 Companion block: "Seagulls"
I just cannot seem to follow these instructions... usually, I LOVE flying geese blocks, but the instructions for this quilt along's flying geese are just hopeless for me!!  Argh!

I sewed some little gifts:
Placemat to Go for a co-worker's little girl.
Just add some chalk & it's ready to go!

Rolled up for on-the-go.

A mini "quilt" which measured ~10"x10".


  1. Good job on the Fifteen blocks, Wilma. I'm doing the same ones, and I'm way behind. I do have the August freebie one done, but I cheated. I appliqued the grey bars!
    I like your horse too - did you design that yourself?

  2. Thanks, Colleen!
    I got the horse template from
