I am hoping this will be the first of several quilt tops I make in July. I have been away from my machine for too long!

Last week my daughter and I attended theΒ  NQS show in Columbus, Ohio. I bought a 3 yard bundle at the Fabric Cafe booth and received this free pattern with my purchase. Yesterday I cut it out and began sewing it. I would have finished last evening except for the fact that I wanted to watch the fireworks that my neighbors were shooting off. This morning I put the last border on it. It is 46″ X 53 1/2″.

We also purchased a quilt kit with Richard Scarry’s “Busytown” fabric. I have cut it out and want to begin sewing it soon. The third quilt kit from the show is a Bali Pops pack of handpainted batik strips. I purchased plain white fabric to use for the background to make a Cozy Quilt Designs pattern “Simplicity”.Β  Jennifer bought the Strip Tube Ruler for me to use with the pattern.

Beautiful quilt. The D9P is one of my favorite patterns to piece. Good to see you sewing again.
