July Stitch Therapy

I know: amazing!
I'm actually doing a Stitch Therapy post the same week as the meeting--I'm not sure that's ever happened before!
Anne brought her Wish Quilt top all put together--so pretty! She used a Christmas postcard print for the border--very nice. Anne also gave us all a lesson on how to do a Colonial Knot. She took a class from Lisa Bongean last month and learned to do the knot "Lisa's" way. I did a little practice again today-I think I've got it!!
Thanks Anne!

Val showed us her fun bag she made from an exclusive fabric she picked up on a trip to the City Quilter quilt shop in New York. 

Twyila"s latest row for Simply Red--that tomato color really pops!

Paula got the most difficult block in the Wish Quilt finished--so pretty and perfect!

Carol has her Simply Red top put together. she plans to add another border or two.
The little bits of caramel color look so pretty --wish it was a better photo. 

Sandi brought her finished top with a beautiful border print border.

She is also doing some applique blocks from a Blackbird Designs book:
When the Cold Wind Blows.

She shrank the designs about 25%.
The pieces are still big enough to show off the fabrics though.

I'm really not a purple person, but I am loving these blocks!!
Brenda brought some of her blue Simply Red--the lighter blue in there really sparkles. 

Brenda was also working on this cute polka dot chicken tea towel--so fun!
And Mary didn't have a quilt to bring--she has already completed her green version of Simply Red and given as a gift! 

If you are following the schedule, stitch the Stars onto the B blocks and make 120 flying geese for the border (page 7).


  1. Sew many talented stitchers and such beautiful projects. Creative Bliss...

  2. You're right, those purple blocks are really well done. The color combinations make the blocks sparkle.

  3. Aren't you lucky to be able to work with such terrific quilters! Beautiful stuff. thanks for sharing...hugs, Julierose

  4. The Wish quilt has a lot of red work embroidery and looks so nice.

    I have some of the floral blocks made for "When the Cold Wind Blows". I wish I had thought to shrink the pattern some. It would make it more manageable.

  5. So many gorgeous projects! Love those purple flowers - so pretty!
