Fresh Sewing Day and Small Blog Meet

Well June for me has been an Oakshott month once again.  I suppose I may tire of Oakshotts at some point but it aint happenin yet.  I've been hand sewing my Hexy MF, inspired by Katy's Hexy MF.  EPP first.

And then applique.


And then some Oakshott diamond piecing for my Jubilee Jamboree quilt top.


What about you?  What have you worked on this month?  Any finishes?  Maybe a mosaic of everything you've been doing?  One favourite thing?  Link up at the bottom of this post to share what you've been working on. If you do link up, how about visiting at least four of the other blogs who link up - two above you and two below you - and stopping to leave a comment as well as visiting back anyone who visits you. As always here's the button to grab:

Lily's Quilts
<div align="center"><a href="http://lilysquilts.blogspot.com/" title="Lily's Quilts"><img src="http://farm8.staticflickr.com/7067/6941768177_69cfa10c8f_m.jpg" alt="Lily's Quilts" style="border:none;" /></a></div>

And link up in the second linky if you are a blog with fewer than 50 followers and would like to get to know a few more people out there in blogland. Write a post about this feature, add this button and then link up.  And for great new blogger advice why not join the Advice for new bloggers series over on Plum and June (guest post by me on 11 June).

Next go and visit and get to know at least four other linked blogs - starting with the two above you in the linkys and the two below you. Visit those blogs, leave a comment, click to follow and visit that blog regularly over the next few weeks. Visit more if you have the time. And also visit back any new bloggers who come to visit you and get to know them and their blogs.

  9. Wow - can't believe it already the 1st of June and time for another Fresh Sewing Month. I love both of your quilts - the hexagon quilt is just beautiful and I love the colors and pattern in your diamond quilt. Thanks so much for including a shout-out for the blog hop and advice for new blogger's series. I'm very much looking forward to your post.
