Moda's Summer in the Country Quilt Along - Blocks 9 & 10

Yesterday afternoon the next 2 blocks for Moda's Summer in the Country Quilt Along were revealed.  Block number 9 is Millennium designed by Becky Thompson. Her blog is Power Tools with Thread (fun name).  Instructions are here.
Block number 10 is actually my other contribution to this quilt along.  It's called Firefly and you can find the details for creating your own version here.
I've taken my blocks and created a fun small project with them so check in on Friday to see it.

I'm really having fun seeing all the versions of the blocks on the Moda Bake Shop Bakers Facebook page.  If you aren't already a member, join us. You'll see so much inspiration that you'll want to sew along.

Guild Scrappy Christmas Quilt

This scrappy Christmas guild charity quilt was been completed recently.
As usual, I took a "before" photo once it was loaded on the frame.
This is the "after" shot.
With charity quilts I get to choose the design and threads so for this one I used Flirtatious with King Tut Malachite thread on the top and So Fine Fern in the bobbin.
A bright green print was supplied for the backing and a dark green binding finished it off.
I'm sure this sweet holiday quilt will bring someone much comfort this coming winter.
I have one more to finish for the guild and then I'll drop them both off to the comfort quilts coordinator. I expect that the guild has a lot of tops waiting to be quilted now because members have been keeping busy during this extended  time home. It will be interesting to see what I end up with to quilt next.

For anyone that has tops that need to be quilted, my current turn around time is fairly quick...3-4 weeks max.  I have over 160 designs to choose from so there's something for everyone.  Check out the design pages via the tabs at the top of the page and Quilt Preparation Instructions. Contact me to discuss putting your quilt on my list.

Moda's Summer in the Country Quilt Along - Blocks 7 and 8

Oops!  I missed posting yesterday about the next 2 blocks in Moda's Summer in the Country quilt along that were released Monday afternoon. If you are following along, you've probably already seen these but if not, here they are

The first block is Summer Basket by Nicola Dodd of Cake Stand Quilts. The details are here.

Next  is the Picnic Table block by Lisajo Girodat of Neverland Stitches. The instructions are here.

And now that it is August, I'm anxiously waiting for my layer cake of the feature Back Porch fabric by Me and My Sister Designs to arrive so that I can get started on my own summertime quilt, while it's still summer.  I won't be making the quilt along quilt but it will still be pretty.
What are you planning on making with Back Porch?
