Summer-ish

IMG_5326

Look, the sun is out!  We’ve been soaking it up.  In between laying out slip n’ slides and trips to the beach I’ve managed a teensy tiny bit of sewing.

Last year I made a few little quilts tops to be donated…and then they’ve sat waiting to be finished.  I looked at them this week and realized I better get them done so someone can love them.  They are finished super simple…but better done than fancy right?

The pattern is Suburbs…modified to be a large crib size. I did super simple quilting around the seams, then bound it using the quilt back with this method (so fast!).

I won’t even tell you how many pots of hot water I had to add to the pool before they’d get in…my kids are cold water wimps!  ;)

Pin It!

What a great view you have! It's been in the 100's here. 70's sounds like sweater weather. Your quilts came out sweet.

I hope you don't mind me asking, but where do you live? The view is fantastic. Is it your home or are you on holiday? The kids look happy in the pool. Love the quilt too.

What a beautiful view. I agree with the kids. Warm water is better than cold : )
LOVE your house block quilt.

I do like how there are gaps in the rows of little houses, lovely quilt and the tutorial I had forgotten about so good to be reminded how to do the binding that way. Kids look to be enjoying their warm water!

It's my parents view! They live in Poulsbo just a few miles from us. But I'm at their house enough I might as well move in. ;)

I just love that pattern in every fabric that I've ever seen it in! I need to sew a few little houses myself!! :-) and so fun to see your little swimming beauties!! And I don't blame them for not wanting to get into cold water: I wouldn't get into it either unless it was 90 degrees out!! Have a great week!! Hugs, H in Healdsburg

Love love the house blocks and the great fabrics you used.
Isn't pool time great? I remember carrying buckets of hot water to add to the pool too.
