Summer of Joy Check-in

Now that summer is officially here, it seems like a good time to look at how my Seaglass earning is doing and to make any adjustments. The Summer Lovin Seaglass SAL hosted by Kitty @nightquilter and Allie @exhaustedoctupus. They are terrific hosts and have provided lots of help and guidance along the way.

You can read the details behind what I am tracking on my kick-off post. I earned a few more pieces of Seaglass between taking the photo above and writing this post. Here is an overview on how it is going:

  • I'm earning seaglass pieces at the rate expected for Green - Handwork,  Aqua - Swimming, and Blue - Reading. These are activities I would do anyway so it is fun to track but earning a piece of seaglass isn't necessarily an incentive.
  • Since I was busy quilting my Magenta Fractal for several weeks, I did put it aside one day purposely to have fun making a new pool bag and thus earned my first Red - Small project creativity seaglass piece. 
Earned several seaglass pieces with our weekend on a lake with family
  • I have earned more Navy - Adventure and Purple - Friends and Family - than I had expected. A trip to NJ to see family helped make that happen. These are the colors I want to dominate the quilt at the end of the year so more work to do here. When I look back on the summer, these are the memories I will hold close.
  • Mustard yellow- Pickleball and biking - and Yellow - Date night - need some focus. Weather has been a bit of a factor but I can't allow that to be an issue.

I put a call-out in my newsletter for some scraps of Alison Glass fabric - thanks Amanda for the beauties you sent my way! I really appreciate it and can't wait for them to show up in my seaglass jar of joy.

Have a wonderful day! Patty


  1. Not being on IG any more, I cn't read the posts and details, so only half understand what this QAL is doing, or is about, but you seem to be enjoying it, and that's what's important. =)

  2. You have a lovely sea glass collection. I'm tracking but haven't started prepping or cutting fabric. What size are your pieces about?

  3. I'm not on IG, so where can I get the patterns for the sea glass, please?
