july bom hearts to hands

Here is the bom for July from Heart to hands online store. I am doing the block lotto each month. No luck in winning so far.
This is the third month that I have taken part in it.
Well I just added the image twice and it is not here. I will have to try again another time. Hopefully it work then.
I will try another picture. That one didn't work either so I'll just try again later.
I now have 7 blocks done in blue of Bragg Creek Storm pattern. I really like this one.

Another friendship block that I will take to my guild meeting in Sept.
It was a grey day most of today and then it just poured really hard. Now it is done and the sun is trying to come out.
My son Chris just got back from Europe. Sounds like he had a great trip.
Today I was working on a wheelchair quilt with the foundation blocks that I'm always making.

This is a friendship block for a guild member. She provided the pattern and the rose 2" squares. I'll take it to our next meeting which is in Sept.
Just finished working my 5 evening shifts. I now get 2 days off. Plan on staying home tomorrow. I need to get my quilts ready for the quilt show this weekend.
Hope to get some sewing done as well. I was in bed but did fall to sleep to got up to ready emails.
I'm on my second cup of hot water so guess I should go to bed soon. It's 12:25 am.
Happy quilting,

This picture is the blue version of Bragg Creek storm. I actually have 6 done but one is on my wall for a sample as I am working on the blocks, so I didn't get it into the picture.
Hubby took today off work so we slept in. I'm still working evenings tonight. So I will leave at 2pm to get there on time.
Last night was a very nice evening at work. Some of our residents had been at the Calgary Zoo. They didn't get back till 4:30 so it was a bit rushed after supper because they were more tired then normal and all in a hurry to go to bed.
Well, I guess I should go and make myself some breakfast. Talk later.

Picture is the block I have been having so much fun with over the last few days. It is addictive. Pattern is by Wayne Kollinger.
It is just so much fun. We had him do a trunk show at our June meeting/potluck. It was just wonderful. I bought one of his patterns called Bragg Creek Storm. I just love making it and just looking at it when finished. I think that I'll make the 3 pink/purple blocks into a table runner. The blue ones that I am working on now will be a quilt.
I sewed for a couple of hours this morning. Now I have to start and get ready for work this afternoon. I am just so excited
about these blocks.
Happy quilting everyone.

Happy Canada Day
Well, I did get some sewing done over the last couple of days. I am addicted to the piecing for the blocks by Wayne Kollinger.
I just love doing them. I have made 3 in pink and purple and got 5 done in blues. The 6th one is almost all cut out.
Pattern of his that I am using is called....Bragg Creek Storm. I just love to look at it after it is together. I will post a picture as soon as I get around to uploading my camera. Won't be today as I have to get ready for work in a few minutes.
I have a dentist appt before work so have to leave home at noon.
Happy quilting everyone.
