I had two finishes for Q2, but you’ll have to wait for TGIFF next week (July 24) to see the bigger one. I’ll give you a hint – it’s a quilt 🙂
My other finish was this Side Hustle laptop bag from the Bag of the Month Club. I did previously share this on Instagram. The leather is real leather, bought at Len’s Mill Store on a whim, and it is sized down to fit my work laptop. I have enjoyed using it since returning to the office part-time (soon to be full-time).
I want to continue to have a shorter, more focused list. Of course it’s summer, so my sewing time is less and gardening time is more. But these are the ones I want to prioritize. The finish-a-long group is in suspension right now while we ride out this roller coaster, but I do like the idea of a quarterly check-in, so here is my list, including some things I would just be happy to progress.
1. Summer sampler quilt – quilting 3/4 done
2. Frolic quilt
3. Sewing machine pillow
4. Beach ball baby quilt #2 – piecing almost done
5. Applique quilt for my niece (top pieced by a friend, needs quilting)
6. Mandolin quilt (EPP) – sewing on the outside pieces to square it up, then needs to be quilted
