August: A Lovely Year of Finishes ~ Mid-month link-up

A Lovely Year of Finishes 

I love watching the progress of all of your projects and even some finishes in the 'A Lovely Year of Finishes' flickr group.

Melissa from Sew BitterSweet Designs and I have even been finishing some of our own. Make sure to go check out what Melissa's been working on. . she's a rockstar!


My August goal is to work on my Nordika quilt-top.

I've worked on it this first part of the month {don't faint}.
I played around with the layout a few times.  I ended up with my initial idea for it.  

Rows and rows now just to sew them together <3 #ALYoF  #nordika

Sooo, for that one item you choose for's it going?

Add your blog post or flickr photo (with appropriate descriptions) to the optional linky party below. 

Please grab a button or link back to Melissa and I so other people can join in the fun!

  5. Wow you quilt is turning out gorgeous! I still want to make those blocks at some point!!!
