Did I do July's block?

Hi ladies. I hope all is well for everyone. I have had a crazy summer. My oldest daughter got married last week. I will post pictures when we get them. I am now picking up the pieces of my life that have been neglected. Amy, did I do a July block for you? In my mind I think I did, but in reality, I have no idea! It has been that kind of summer!

July Block

I sent off this block a month ago as I knew it was needed quickly and then totally forgot to create the blog. Must be something to do with all the children being off school!!! I really like the colour scheme of this block - think the final quilt will look really pretty. Claire

Anthea's books for Jamie

While sewing this block up for you Jamie, I mused that it would have been fun selecting fabrics that felt connected to particular books.  I wonder what would have come out if I'd done that rather than the completely random method of pulling only from the scraps and trying to choose a wide variety of colours and patterns.  What seems to be on this section of shelf is a complete mish-mash of genres: Gerald Durrell's memoirs, a couple of old high school text books, some magic realism novels and possibly a cooking tome.  Have fun putting the bookshelf together Jamie.

I'll be absent for all of September and two weeks of October everyone - we will be touring New Zealand in a motorhome.  So I am hoping the hosts of the next two months won't want anything too quickly - let me know if you do Pam and Claire and I'll try to complete it this month.
