Sunkissed Summer, a New Pattern, and NTT!

Welcome to another Thursday friends!  On Sunday, I posted that I had three different things going on in my sewing space, which you know is rather different for me.  Well, that certainly didn't last long!  I put the finishing touches on my new pattern, Gyroscope, and it is now for sale in my Etsy and Craftsy shops.  It's a really fun one, and I hope you'll check it out!

I also finished up the Heather Bailey commissioned quilt, and I love how it turned out!  I decided to call this one Sunkissed Summer, because the colors are so bright and cheery, and that shot of yellow just makes me smile!

Although the weather was beautiful when I photographed the finished top last weekend, it has not been so cooperative over the last few days.  We have been getting just enough rain to make everything steamy and just a tiny bit damp.  In fact, I was really lucky that the fence was dry enough to take these pics.  Since the quilt was commissioned, I didn't feel like I could hold onto it just for blog photos, so a few backyard pics in a brief period of sunshine will have to do!

I have really been loving scrappy bindings these days!  I think they are so much fun, and rather than framing the quilt, they just blend right in.

Of course, that leaves me working through my rainbow of scrap jars, and I don't see a top coming together super quick with that!

Without further ado, let's get onto last week's highlights!

Paula at Sewy Stuff showed off her cute Limeade quilt-

Heather at Quilts in the Queue linked up these pretty Arkansas Traveler blocks!
