Pageant Highlight Reel / Beauties Pageant 28

As you are reading this, quilty friends, I am at an indoor water park with two little boys. It’s back-to-back days of splashing in the wave pool and going down the slides and trying to keep track of my kids. (So not exaggerating on that last point.) At the moment, I am likely anticipating the need for a nap when I get home and preparing myself for an evening on the couch instead of a productive session at my sewing machine.

I may be running around with the boys, but I still have sewing on my mind, including these projects from past Beauties Pageants ...

Lisa linked up this Bloem Basket from an Instagram sew-along. I love how she took the opportunity to use a large-scale print on the exterior—pretty!

Alice used an online tutorial to make up her Octopus’s Garden quilt. Look at that strong geometry and bold palette!

And Bernie, of Needle and Foot, made this version of Meadow Mist Designs’ Flock of Geese pattern. Be still my geese-loving heart!

If you have a recent finish to share, I hope you’ll include it in this week’s pageant ...

  1. Enjoy your time at the water park! And that nap, lol :)

  2. Happy swimming, Michelle! Sounds like fun. We'll see what quilting you dream up while on water park duty.

  3. I love it!! Sounds like fun - and fingers crossed you come home with all the kids you left with - haha!

  4. Hi Michelle! Oh, I think that couch visit will definitely be well earned. Two boys coupled with a water park require a lot of energy expenditure so you'll need an evening (at least) to feel refreshed and restored. Happy Friday, friend. ~smile~ Roseanne

  5. There's no denying how exhausting it can be chasing around a couple kids! The couch, I'm sure, welcomed you with open arms afterwards!

  6. Enjoy!!! I always need a vacation after our "vacation";-) Down to one kid for this break (a preview of things to come) but I'm sure we'll still find plenty to do.

  7. As I read this it is Sunday Morning. Are you STILL at the water park? WRINKLY fingers and toes! You never know when your readers get around to reading a blog. Since it is now hidden in my Facebook feed it is harder to find.

  8. There are definitely some beauties! thanks for the linky opportunity. :)
