August 2017 Roundup

August 2017 roundup at Clever Chameleon BlogAugust 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….. 🙂
