August Recap and 2014 NewFO Link Up

August brings the winding down of Summer.  It was a jammed packed month of activities - outside the house and away from the studio, so there's not a ton to share. 

I am participating in Barbara at Cat Patches 2014 NewFO Challenge. Click here to see everyone's new projects  August NewFO Challenge and Linky Party

My August 2014 quilt stats:
1 new top - FINISH!!
This was a NewFO this month - Summer Irish Chain.  This was just a transitional piece - something simple to work on after 4 Finishes in July. 

1 new quilt part - FINISH!!
This was a NewFO this month - shades of red, pink & orange batiks.  This will be the inset, accent part of the New Quilt from Old Favorites - 9 Patch.   I created this as a separate mini quilt so that once it's applied to the rest of the quilt, it will add dimension.

September's focus is the rest of the 9 patch - New Quilt from Old Favorites.

How was your August?


  1. Beautiful quilts! Looking forward to seeing the rest of the red and orange one.

  2. Wow, I love your Irish Chain. It's one of my favorite patterns.
