August 2017 Roundup at Clever Chameleon
I think that Joy, from the Days Filled with Joy blog has the right idea! Actually, she advocates two great quilting ideas….. attack your UFOs systematically and celebrate your progress every month. We easily forget the delight of our finishes all too soon, while those unfinished things can really grate. So I am going to try to start being more deliberate about remembering progress and also finishing some UFOs.
So, August 2017 at Clever Chameleon looked like this…..
- we had 8 great Colour Inspiration Tuesdays, producing 10 great colour boards…… What?! “But there were only 5 Tuesdays in August”, I hear you say. Yes, but we had our first link up with Stitched in Color and we went a bit silly with the colour boards, didn’t we?! And it was Fun. My “Hazy Days” fabric mosaic even made the ten finalist entries in the Stitched in Color Summer Crush contest.
- we had 3 great quilt ideas come out of Colour Inspiration Tuesday, and I seriously want to Do. Them. All! Digging for Pineapples generated a sentimental modern quilt idea that I want to do for me. The other two ideas have significant pattern potential. OK, so the UFOs might have to wait…..
- we did some sewing…. I nearly finished the tumbling blocks quilt top for my daughter. Actually, I did finish the tumbling blocks patchwork, but then I decided I wanted to change a few things. so it is currently back in (several large) pieces….. 🙂
- we did some quilting……. I finished a baby quilt for charity this month. I also stabilised two further charity quilts, so this was a big quilting month by my slowish standards.
- we checked in on the Patchwork and Quilting Tailwind Tribe we started in July, and it is going very well. So far we have 18 members, and have generated over 220 shares and over 225 re-pins. Very pleased! Click here if you’d like to join.
- we had a tutorial on sewing tumbling blocks patchwork and an in depth discussion about the up-sides of quilting printed fabric panels.

So, a pretty busy month, now that I look back! Thanks for reading and being part of my motivation. I hope you found something of worth at Clever Chameleon in August. If you had a favourite post, I’d love to know.
Wishing you a great September!
