Solstice stitching

(Because alliteration is just so fun). This week was super-easy, making HST square units for the Summer Solstice quilt-along with Melissa at Happy Quilting. Doubly easy because I used my flying geese ruler to make triangles, which were then sewn into the squares, no trimming required! This is a trick I learned from following Bonnie Hunter of Quiltville.

I also progressed trimming my oversized flying geese down to size.

But I haven’t yet cut out my revised selections for the drunkard’s path blocks, so that I will be all ready for next week. It was really hot in my sewing room on some of these days, but thankfully we finally received some rain on Monday and it has cooled down a little. (A really rainy day on the upcoming holiday Monday would be even better…so I can sew). If you take a peek at my instagram, you will see that I have also been putting together a mini quilt for the #starblockquiltswap. Rainbow-tized, of course.

Linking up to Happy Quilting and to Lorna at Sew Fresh Quilts.
