Quilting and Flimsies
At long last, I'm going to finish up the 56 quilt blocks for the Live, Love, Teach quilt. Complete!
Also, I want to make the Pet Pawtrait of Scooter the dog. This is a Pay it Forward gift for my friend Marei's husband Bill. Complete!
3. This month, I plan to pay the piper and pick up with the next section for A Quiltmaker's Garden. Just because I didn't finish it in May doesn't mean I've given up on it. Hopefully, I can move it along in June. Or not, because No Progress.
When my cousin asked me to make a baby quilt for their newest granddaughter, I changed out my originally selected project for this Baby Birds baby quilt. The pattern has been in my quilts-to-make notebook for years. It's only started, but finishes aren't required for Let's Book it, and so this goal is Complete!
6. Make a block for
If I can finish all of that, I'll make a project for
So here we go...
If I had to choose a favorite month, it would probably be July. I love spending American Independence Day with my family down on the Willamette River. We make a day of it, setting up early on the east side of the river to wait for the fireworks after sunset. It was so darned hot last year, that we all took to using cooling towels to keep from keeling over. This year, we're expecting a nice cool 77°F. Perfect.
As for sewing during July, here's what's on tap.
Quilting and Flimsies
1. My highest priority this month is to quilt the "Seating for Two" quilt. I was going to put this off until later in the year, but there are a couple of quilt shows I'd like to enter it in, and that means it has to be finished this month.
2. Turn Written in Thread into a flimsy. It still needs its outer border, and then it will be ready for quilting.
3. The next section of Quiltmaker's Garden has been pushed to the side for two months now (hangs head in shame). Maybe this third month will be the charm to move this long-standing UFO along.
4. Let's Book It:
This month, I'd like to make the next block for Chicken Buffet. Sharon generously allows me to use this project each time I add a block. Here are the blocks I have so far.
5. Rainbow Scrap Challenge:
6. Block Lotto
July's block has yet to be announced, as I write this.
That's probably a long enough list for July because I'm still determined to make the wine tote listed above as my project for:
That seems like a shorter-than-usual list, but still plenty to keep me busy. What are you hoping to accomplish in July?
