Summer sewing … or not?

and sometimes even this!
What will you be doing this summer? If your plans include some sewing, and you’re looking for ideas, you might like to try a quilt-along. I’ve participated in 2 quilt alongs this year – Cherry House and Fat Quarterly. One of the fun things about them are the Flickr groups that go along – you can post your work, and see what everyone else in the group is doing too. And even if you’re following the quilt-along late (as I did with the Fat Quarterly) it doesn’t matter at all – the instructions and photos are all there for you.
Here are some of the quilt-alongs I’ve come across lately that look like fun. Let me know if you’re aware of others that should be added to the list.
