10/10 in July

One of the most Cre8tive and talent quilters I know suggested in our Hexie group to do a July sewing challenge. The challenge is to sew at least a little, every single day in July.  So far I am 10/10 and have done both hand and machine sewing. The 1st and 2nd I trimmed up the Easy 4 quilt and the Hugs and Kisses quilts and put the binding on by machine. I also sewed hexies at break. On the 3rd I sewed hexies at both breaks. On the 4th I hexied at our camp site in the morning and sewed the binding on by hand in the afternoon evening on the Easy 4 quilt.
On the 5th and 6th I worked on the binding on the Hugs and Kisses quilt. I got about one side done each day. I again worked on it during breaks on the 8th, 9th, and 10th, and officially finished it today!
My hubby and I had a rare date night to see the World of Outlaws race on Monday night. I took my mini hexies and worked on them
I cleaned house and put up my summery wine glass shades.
I picked up a little sale fabric from Jennifer at Knotted Thread. Hexie's and chevrons with a piece of solid white. What can I say? That's where my interest is right now.
I finished 3 rows of my hexi table runner. I have started piecing the other parts in rows of 7 & 8, so I can keep them in the box longer and play with it a bit more when I am ready to assemble. I'm really happy with how it is turning out so far.
