This week is stitching, my favorite part to any design. I had fun again. If you missed last weekend post, you can find it here: Last Weeks Post, and the rules for this week are here: August Challenge week 2 rules.
Trinity Celtic Knot is a wonderful quilt to make. I thoroughly enjoyed making it and I know hundreds of other quilters have made it too. It is one of our best selling patterns.
These simple looking flowers are always a favorite as they are so bright and colorful. The colors vary between the different species. The leaves are also simple and pine needle like in shape. It is hard to see the leaves with this flower I photographed as it is in among other plants.
I had so much fun Sunday creating my stitch along challenge that it happened to get my mind in creative overdrive. I have a new idea for a new quilt that I just cannot wait to get started on. This is the fun with creativity. Why don't you join in too? Check out week 1 rules here: August Week One Rules and get inspired by our gallery August Challenge Gallery.
I've been back in the pantry. Today I crumbed a chicken breast for my dinner and noticed the wheat design on the breadcrumb container. I thought this would make a good quilting design.
Today I was stitching down the binding on my newest quilt called "Spring to Fall" and realized that many quilters do not know how to put on a straight binding. Most use a mitered corner binding. Therefore I thought it was probably a good idea to update my straight binding lesson as it was 10 years old.
I created this gallery page for the August Challenge Stitch Along Sunday

I had a call from a friend who was clearing out her sewing room. She had some hand dyed fabrics and wanted to know if I could use them. I love hand dyed fabrics, probably because I do not dye fabrics myself or maybe just because the colors are not interrupted with designs. Whatever my reason, I said "yes, I can put them to use".
