Hello Everyone!  Long time no see.  The summer went by swiftly and we sure kept busy!

There were fairy gardens made

 

Wizarding wands magicked

I attended the Art Quilt Symposium in Columbus, OH

I also attended SewPro in Chicago and met Tula Pink and Pat Sloan and many other wonderful members of the quilting industry.

Lucas took a whirl at the sewing machine for the first time and made himself a pillow.

And he picked out fabrics for me to make him his own quilt.  The first of my three children to receive a handmade quilt from me.  I also made a matching toothfairy pillow that also works as a pillow for Rory.

There were also trips to see family and Harry Potter; visits to museums and beaches; days lounging at the pool or playing video games.  Such a fun filled summer.

Now that the kids are back to school, its back to work for me.  Guess what I’m doing?

A QUILT ALONG!!!!!

Yuppers.  I have purchased (as have many others) the Fandango Quilt Kit featuring Tula Pink fabrics.  I drooled over the quilt when I saw pictures of it at Quilt Market.  It was released recently and I thought I would do Tula Tuesdays here and on Instagram so that those of us who are making this piece have somewhere to share our journey.

I will not be posting directions for the pattern.  You must buy the kit for all that.  Please do and follow along.  It’s going to be a great time!!!

See you soon.

Lovingly,

Lissa
