Happy Friday, everyone!
We made it through another week, although they are starting to blur together. The warm August days are beautiful, and I do enjoy getting a little outside each day during breaks and lunch as I work from home. My little backyard vegetable garden is thriving, and we’ve enjoyed several salads from the bounty. School is starting soon for my teen, but it will so very different being online rather than in person.
I finished my month 7 blocks for the Sea Glass BOM, designed by Fig Tree. I’m really enjoying the soothing color palette of these blocks each month.
This block is called Sea Star.

My blocks in the BOM are growing! I just need to go back to last month and complete the flying geese (likely for border units).

Pretty, pretty sea glass! These blocks just seem to sparkle.
Have a great weekend and happy quilting,
Whew, it has been a warm week with temperatures in the 90s. My vegetable garden is finally starting to perk up after a cool start to our summer. We’re harvesting salad lettuces now, and the squashes are growing rapidly. I can’t wait for the tomatoes!
I recently finished my 2 blocks for month 6 of the Sea Glass block of the month by Fig Tree. The block this month is called Compass Rose.
Look at these beautiful fabrics! I think the darker aqua is so pretty.

I still need to sew the flying geese border units for this month so I hope to get them finished this weekend.
Here’s a look at the first 6 months of blocks together:

Take care and happy quilting!
We’ve been having an unusually rainy start to June here in the Pacific Northwest. I’m definitely looking forward to some sunshine soon!
Over the weekend, I worked on my Sea Glass BOM by Fig Tree & Co. The block this month features a cross shape in the middle, to acknowledge this strange year dealing with COVID-19. The participants in the BOM will always remember that we worked on this quilt during a pandemic.
The block is called “Ocean Cross,” and we could choose from 2 different layout options. I decided to make one block using each layout. Due to the rain, I had to take these pictures indoors so the blocks do appear a bit brighter in person.

Here are all of my blocks together. So pretty!

We have also been working on large flying geese for the BOM, which will likely form a border. Each month, we cut out extra pieces for the geese and sew a few together when instructed.
I really love this color palette!
