Friday Finish For Mum!

This one took quite a while to finish, but so worth it!

This is Bonnie and Camille's Round and Round pattern that I've used before and just love working on the large blocks.

Fabric is Day Sail from Camille Roskelley........... perfect for a summer quilt!

The back was what took me the longest.  I debated on whether to track down more yardage of Day Sail or to piece the back with what I had left.  I found the little sail boat blocks on pinterest....

I also added more friendship blocks for another border to break up the solid blue.

I recently read a blogger's post that talked about having trouble photographing finished quilts...
My Liam is not concerned... and maybe a bit bored?

This quilt is a gift for the family's Cape House!  Just in time for the 4th of July vacation week!  

Linking up with Crazy Mom and NTT....
Thanks for stopping by and an early Happy 4th to all!

Summer fireflies

This Friday finish is a baby quilt featuring Sarah Jane's fabric from her line, Wee Wander.  

This quilt is inspired by the free pattern from Freshly Handmade.

I recently purchased some new labels from JJ Labels!
Love how they turned out.  You can customize your own labels on her website.  I did try using the website, Spoonflower to create labels, but found their editing tools difficult to use.  Has anyone else experienced this?  

As for a Friday start, I've recently joined the Summer Sampler 2016 quilt along!  You can join any time here at Freshly Pieced.
You receive one pdf per week featuring a block from 10 different designers and 7 bloggers.  You can join anytime!
Here are my first two blocks...

 Funny how you pick up on mistakes after you take a pic?
Anyone notice this in the block above?  
I'm using left over fabric from Miss Kate and Day Sail.
Have a great weekend!
