Well, part of my excuse is that I had a DrEAMi! of a non-sewing, but quilting related kind over the past two days: putting my nose to the grindstone (for both entire days) and focussing solely on finishing my Oh, the Places You'll Go! pattern for the quilt I made in January for Island Batik.
I was out of the country for the July DrEAMi! and the first half of August so I didn't get a chance to visit the linkups but I did have a look over the past several days, and here are three that are tantalizing:

It is spooky how we are often on the same wavelength in QBL. I've found this in the Design Challenge I host each year. Each of us is busy designing, islands in the stream of quilt design, but that stream is, in my mind anyhow, a stream of consciousness/creativity that we are each tapping into, and sometimes designs that are so eerily similar emerge within hours or a couple of days of each other! So here is another example, another triangle quilt with the exact design of my triangle Santa that Frédérique's quilt reminded me of, and based on triangles as well!

And because I just love house quilts/blocks, this one immediately caught my eye/fancy.

I think you may have seen my other sort-of squirrel, my two more scraps boxes I just had to finish up, even though I should be working on Brady's quilt and my Island Batik quilt...
The green one was the first squirrel, back in March. I've made panels for five more, but haven't quilted them, until they sat up and frisked their whiskers and flicked their tails at me a week ago... You can read about the red and the yellow ones here.
Okay what's been flicking its tail at you in August? Link up below!
