Happy Summer!

It's officially summer break for me so now I will be able to do a lot more sewing!  Yay!
I am ready to send my low volume quilt to Melissa at Sew Shabby Quilting and now I get to finish some more WIP's.
First up is my Lazy Sunday quilt.  I am using Sunnyside by Kate Spain, the fabric is perfect for the Pacific Northwest.
Surprise! The quilt top is already finished!  It only took a few days to put together!  Here are some pictures.

I just ordered some minky fabric for the backing of the quilt, it will be so soft and snuggly!  

Now I will be working on a memory quilt.  My grandfather passed away in April, and I am going to make a quilt out of his old jeans for my grandmother.  I might end up making a few more and giving them to my mom and my uncles.  I found a lovely tutorial from  the Missouri Star Quilt Co. that explains how to cut the jeans into squares.
Some people call these quilts as bereavement quilts, but I prefer the term memory quilts instead.

I am also working on a quilt using Honeysweet fabric.  I picked the Sunny Steps quilt pattern available on the Moda Bake Shop.  I will have another post about that soon!

On another note, if any of you are looking for a planner, I just discovered the Erin Condren Life Planners and I absolutely love them.  I cannot wait for mine to come in the mail!
