With the summer’s end rapidly approaching I am looking forward to all the coziness of fall. Early fall is what I like to consider the beginning of quilt snuggling season, aka the season where I spend as much time as possible swaddled in quilts.
It's time to say farewell to summer. What a bittersweet feeling! There is so much excitement and beauty in the fall, but the calm and relaxed days of summer are always special. The end of summer means we're also wrapping up our Summer Haze Tips and Tricks blog series, and soon you'll have a beautiful quilt to remind you of those last warm days of the year.
Hi Summer Haze friends! Laura here, back again with Part II of our Summer Haze Tips & Tricks blog series. I don't know about you, but I'm definitely starting to feel that hazy end-of-summer vibe. The sun is setting earlier, mornings are getting cooler, and pretty soon the leaves will start changing.
Hey, Suzy Quilts fans, Laura here! You may remember me as the guest host of the Voyage Quilt Sew Along or from my other blog posts on the Suzy Quilts website.

It's the FINAL week of the New Horizons sew along! You did it! You did it!! And even if you're still technically on week 3 or even week 1, you deserve a pat on the back. I'm giving myself multiple pats on the back because throughout this sew along I had only so much time during the day so I had to choose between sewing and clean laundry for my family and as you can see each week I chose sewing and I'm standing by that choice!
