I have been on a bunting kick! I made one funky pink/lime green one for myself, and it’s awesome. I don’t have a very good picture of it, but it’s almost 11 feet long and currently adoring the half-wall that separates the kitchen from the living room in my house.

After I realized how quick and easy it is to make these buntings, I decided to start making some for Christmas gifts. I made a reversible Christmas/4th of July bunting for my aunt, who loves to decorate for the holidays (and the 4th of July is the biggest holiday in our family!). Fenway did an excellent job modeling for these pictures:

I started a super-simple Christmas quilt a few weeks ago and forgot to mention it here. It’s very simple – I used a Blitzen charm pack and a bunch of Kona solids (peridot, avocado, tarragon, candy green, ruby, and stone). I have never made this type of simple charm quilt before, and I’m excited at how quickly it’s coming together. I want to practice some free motion quilting on this one!
