August Kits are in the Mail

I finally mailed my August kits for my quilting bee.

I am requesting string blocks for a Fall quilt, using these fabrics and a mixture of different solid strips for the centers. I included directions, and links to a couple good tutorials for reference.

I was excited to carry my packages to the post office in style, thanks to this fabulous market bag my friend Amy made for me as part of a swap we did with each other last fall.

I am looking forward to snuggling under this new quilt-in-the-works on those crisp Fall days. I’m picturing a cozy campfire with a knitting project in hand. Can you tell I’m getting a little tired of the hot, humid summer days?
