During June I was also busy finishing of my @siblingstogetherquiltgroup quilt.

This is group where we make blocks each months, and one sewing bee mama for each month sew them together. These get sent to summer camps for kids who get separated from their siblings in foster care.

Head over to there page, if you fancy getting involved, they are looking for volunteers…

Every memory quilt and personalised gift set is made with love and care, offering the highest quality products all safety tested for your peace of mind. I love to make special memory quilts, using your child’s baby grows, bibs and small t-shirts, to make a lovely keepsake for years to come, with special appliqued motifs from their clothes, hand finished with cotton binding and all beautifully wrapped to the highest standard. The newborn gift sets are bespoke, simply chose the items you wish to add to your box. They are beautiful gifts made using super soft velour with a choice of pretty jersey fabrics. All the fabrics I use are Oeko-tex Standard 100. (STANDARD 100 by OEKO-TEX® is one of the world’s best-known labels for textiles tested for harmful substances. My Birch wood Bird ring is EN71 tested, meaning they have been chemically and physically tested and are confirmed suitable and safe to be used as a toy. www.instagram.com/michelle_creativeblonde and www.facebook.com/creativeblonde66

  1. I love your orange block! I’m not too happy with mine (the value of the two orange fabrics is too close) so I may redo it. We’ll see. Congrats on the magazine and seeing your name on the cover! Those two charities are wonderful; what cute hospital gowns!

  3. HAHAHAHAHAHAHA! Zac and Elizabeth would want you to concentrate, Michelle. Not that I know who Z&E are, or anything. I got hooked on the stupid show as well, and now I miss it on the weekend. Geez! Could you believe . . . oh, I’ll stop because this isn’t a post or reply about Love Island. Love the Modern monthly blocks as well as your color of the month. I’m just thinking about my aqua fabrics for July. ~smile~ Roseanne
