Emmy Grace Plans : :

It's the first day of the new school year. My children have been so excited which makes it all so much easier, and I'm equally ready to get back to a schedule! Here they are -- my 2nd, 5th, & 6th graders! Oh, how time flies!!

It's the first day of school: 2nd, 5th, & 6th grade!! They are so excited!!

Today I plan to clean my oddly quiet house, but first I'm going to treat myself to finally cutting into my beautiful stack of Emmy Grace fabrics from Bari J.!

Emmy Grace by Bari J.

I plan to remake my Winter's Garden quilt, to draft the pattern to offer once I finish!

Another pretty quilt back from Sew shabby Quilting!

I've been waiting for just the right fabric collection to come along to make these quilt blocks again, and I think Emmy Grace is it!

Winter's Garden Blocks!

How about you, what are you working on these days?

  2. No sewing for me today! I am the head cook at a local K-8 school and I am headed in to get things ready for next Tuesday. That was one short summer!!
    Enjoy your day?

  5. I love the Emmy Grace fabrics. I backed my new granddaughter's quilt with the fawn day .... would love to have the entire collection, but I'm sort of on a 'fabric diet' right now. LOL.

  11. Love Emmy Grace and I think that is the perfect block for that line. I'm making a Giant Star quilt for my husband using NFL Steeler fabric. I'm also using the qayg technique and will do stitch in the ditch for the backing. I'm quite excited about it. I'm doing free motion quilting on each block to practice and I'm having a lot of fun. I really would like to get creative and do something like your arrows on a plain canvas. Now if I just had all the time to do everything. LOL

  12. School is in the air on this side of the Atlantic too - I had to take my son (16) to visit his 6th form college today, which he starts on the 4th Sept! Wish he was still like yours and hadn't grown up so fast!!! Still, I consoled myself with a bit of string quilt therapy this afternoon! Love the new blocks you've made - looks like lovely fabric :)

  13. Cute kids. Do your boys sew?

    I find it interesting how you guys start the school year mid-year. I imagine it is because there is a long Summer holiday in the middle of the year. It is the middle of term 3 here in Australia. We have our long Summer holidays over the end and start of the year (the Christmas and New Year period).The school year normally starts up again towards the end of January.

    I'm working on a quilt that was inspired by an office chair :) Have fun with your Emmy Grace fabric.

  16. I think your choice is spot on for your fabric. As for me, I'm making quilts for Christmas. The family has grown over that past year as two sets of twins were born. Can you say proud grandma! Two quilts down and two to go. Thank heaven it is only August.

  17. Hmm, I'm betting you're just as happy that they've gone back to school so you get some sewing time - win win all round!
