I was reading this and thinking that that tapestry quilt would look awesome using some of the charm squares. I.d love to give that a try with the charms.

I posted before about a new monthly program I joined for candle mats or Penny Rugs as they are called. Each month I receive a kit with the wool and a pattern designed by Buttermilk Basin. These are awesome! And so quick and easy to assemble. This is's not extremely summer-y, but the pennies look a little like sunflower colors. Some of the months are definitely seasonal or have a holiday theme. This one could stay out all year!

Here is the mat for June. I am in love with this one...I just have to pet it every time I walk by. :P The wools are just soooo nice.
I love the detail on these little projects...easy and simple, but just the right touch.
I don't remember what the theme/design is for August. I could look ahead on the website, but I think I'll wait and just be surprised when the kit arrives in the mail. :)

Happy Quilting!
