June Make-a-Long with Béa

June Make-a-Long with Béa

A Summer sewing project entirely explained!

Here we are… we have (already!) made half of our strip!! Go share your progress on the Simply Vintage facebook group and with the hashtag #QUILTMANIA2021! For the beginning of June, Béa gives us a taste of summer, travels and celebrations… so have fun with lace, jute, doily, etc.

Find the first five parts on our blog.


  • One safety pin: 5.5 cm (2¼’’) length
  • A linen rectangle: 4 x 6 cm (1½’’x 2½’’)
  • An old sheet rectangle: 3.5 x 5 cm (1⅜’’x 2’’) and a small rectangle for the « C ‘est l’été » (It’s Summertime) label
  • A jute rectangle: 3 x 5 cm (1¼’’x 2’’) you’ll paint in green
  • A starched doily scrap
  • A yellow lace scrap
  • A flowery lace scrap
  • A blue died lace scrap
  • 2 small buttons


  1. Place the small rectangle of old sheet right next to the linen rectangle’s bottom. Make some broken rib stitches with the ecru cotton embroidery thread on the top ¾ of this assembly.
  2. Unravel the upper part of the piece of jute to fake grass. Then sew it onto the base.
  3. Add the crochet scrap and attach it in the same way.
  4. Put some blue color on the upper part to represent the sky.
  5. Help yourself and use the picture as a guide to make the lavender with green crewel stitches and lavender french knots.
  6. Sew on the two buttons.
  7. Attach everything on the safety pin by folding the upper part of the linen rectangle down.
  8. On the strip, above the May part, on the left, place the yellow lace (for the sun) and the blue compress (for the sky). Sew in place with broken rib stitches.
  9. Find a space to keep for your pin. On the right side of this space, attach the flowery lace scrap.
  10. From this lace, embroider the branches that started on the January part. Make them more and more perennial and leafy.
  11. Fix the pin in place. Make some broken rib stitches on the bare part. Embroider some music notes with black cotton thread.
  12. On the small remaining sheet rectangle, embroider your little message with backstitches and attach it on the left side of the pin.
