Labor Day!!? Already???

Where did my the summer go? Well technically it's got another 3 weeks or so but you know what I mean.
So what has been going on with Sew Much Good in the last three month?

Lots, actually.

First I finished a quilt kit that I bought in . . . cough . . . cough. . . well, a while ago.
I bought it because I loved it the minute I saw it and I still love it!

It's now ready to take a place of honor in my sewing room.

Cutting Squares Fast!

I teach quilting at Just Sew in Highland, Utah.
The quilt one of my classes is making needs 160 - 2 1/2" white squares. The squares sewn on as half square triangles shape the petals in this Pretty Posies quilt.

That's a lot of squares.
So let's cut them as fast as we can.
