Summer-Time Sewing

I love this time of year when the

summer-time sun shines in my sewing studio window at 6a.m.!Suzn+Quilts+Sewing+in+the+Sunshine

This along with the new light (w/ 8 bagillion lumen) David installed for me last year

Suzn+Quilts+lightmakes to so easy to get up even in the dark & start my day.

Clare complained that it was “like Walmart in here” when he first put it up!

I said “I know! Isn’t it great?  I can see!!!”




as I cut & stitch on a new Tiny Dresden pattern sample this morning, I can see!

What are you up to?

Whatever it is,

just keep sewing!


My Life

But wait, there’s more…

When I started my happy 4th of July-2015 post

I didn’t know I was going to be showing you all of my patriotic patterns.

When I saw the cute little Betsy Ross seamstress on the post card it reminded me of my patriotic patterns.

So, one by one I thought of each pattern & added it to the post.

It was fun remembering them all.

I had no idea I had so many.

After I published the post I remembered I had even more!


“Freedom Basket” was my very first published pattern.

I still love that cute patriotic children’s print.

I feel bad forgetting my very first pattern!


“Stars & Stripes” is one of my quick & easy

Quilt-as-you-go, lap quilt patterns.

They say the memory is the first thing to go…

and I don’t remember what’s after that.

I hope you get to see lots of fireworks tonight.

If not, perhaps you can sew some of your own.

Just keep sewing.
