July [button holes and zips]

I had a great month! How was yours!

I started a lot of new projects, but I finished a few too! My starts include some of my finishes and: a mini Tula Pink alphabet quilt

A post card quilt - I've been waiting for inspiration to strike on the quilting - and it might just have struck in the last few days!

And some mix tape blocks

...but I didn't intend to "F the world" #accidentalfussycutting

My finishes: Nested Churn Dash Quilt - I only started this at the start of the month, but really enjoyed it...
...especially the quilting

a Tula Pink City Sampler Mini quilt, which I used as practice for my big City Sampler quilt and to get use to free motion quilting on my new machine

Another buggy blanket for Mia which is effectively a decorated muslin cloth which I can use to cover Mia's legs when it's sunny. There are two loops sewn into the binding which I can use to attach it to the buggy so it doesn't blow away in a summer gale breeze.

And as the title of this post would suggest I successfully tackled button holes, with a new dress for Mia, and made matching knickers (my first time using elastic).

Can you believe she's now 5 months old?

And I made my first zippy pouch - the Key Pouch

And my second zippy pouch! I've admired the Sew Together Bag for a while and I just went for it without much thought so no time to talk myself out of it!

And I made an embroidered basket for the Big Stitch Swap

Not bad, eh? Linking up with Fresh Sewing Day

"F" the world! That's awesome. If you are, it totally stands for "fabulous." Your nested churndash quilt is utterly gorgeous!

I LOVE those mix tape blocks and your dress for Mia…oh and your sew together bag!! I really want to make one of those, when I have the time and zips!

Mia is so adorable, and you are so fast at sewing those beautiful projects.
