August Charming Girl Projects


Sliding right in under the wire...Here are my August Charming Girl Projects...I've been working on this first project for months and like last month's project, it just kept getting pushed to the bottom of the stack...so this month it's at the top and it will be done.The pattern came from Country Loft and is by The Cottage of Cardiff Farms.

I just started this top last week and I'm loving it...it is so fun... This is French Zig from French Farmhouse by Renee Nanneman and Need'l Love. Someone told me the other day that Christmas will be here before we know it...maybe I'll be ready. LOL! My plan is to have both of these flimsies finished and ready for the quilter by the end of August. This is such good motivation! Thanks Kelly!

The fabrics in both quilts look wonderful together. I particularly love that Country Loft pattern. The colors are very inviting in it too. Looks like it will make a much loved quilt.

You have certainly motivated me with this most positive post! Those projects are both wonderful, and I'm looking forward to seeing them finished!

Ah, Ms. Carol, you're getting some quality time in with the sewing machine. Very Pretty! And those b&w pictures of Camden and Hampton are just beautiful!

Ok..I love both of them!

I used to go to the Country Loft once a week when I lived in San D and it is even better in person! I must tell you that you could do some real damage in there.

BTW-Your Little Ones are so adorable. You are right...time flies!

Carol said...

Nice projects. Love the fabrics.

Wendy said...

Both are really great patterns and fabrics, I love the country loft one the best.

Karen said...

I don't remember seeing the French Zig pattern. Looks very interesting.

Lori said...

Very nice! I can't wait to see the tops done. Setting simple goals sure helps me get things done. Way to go!

Both quilts in progress are very pretty and such neat patterns. What fabric line is the first one? I love all the colors. You are doing so well since it is still early days yet.
