summertime blankets

thanks to everyone who stopped by this week!  and of course to my amazing giveaway sponsors and guest posters! lots of fun easy projects to try. and if you do make something using one of the tutorials, be sure to join and share a photo in the flickr pool?

amy at naptime crafters shared a great idea today, using the sleeves of those old tees to make shorts for the little ones! so if you're making the t-shirt nightgown from several old shirts, save those sleeves for a wee one!  be sure to stop at her blog and check it out!

another WIP, this is the quilt top i am making from my bee vintage blocks.

i have one more row to sew on, and then it's time to quilt!  since it looks so old fashioned, i plan to tie this quilt with a super light batting, to make the perfect summertime blanket!

here's the quilt top i'm still working from the 1st round of bee vintage.

i misplaced the extra wide white fabric i was using for sashing, and once i uncover it, i
can finish stitching it all together.   i'll probably finish this the same way as the first.  these just look like summer to me.

NOW CLOSED! the giveaways close in 35 minutes, so if you haven't got your sew full of summer entries in yet, hurry!

Those are so sweet, and, yes, summery.

Both of your quilts are gorgeous. I love the white background. Looks fresh and crisp. Crisp probably isn't the word but hope you know what I mean. hehe.
