WiP - June

Ah, June. The wonderful month when the children and I try to work out how we will co-exist 24/7. I've got to hand it to you homeschoolers! We're finally getting into a schedule with plenty of library stops and plenty of Netflix. Wait, I mean, just the library. The Dude definitely isn't almost done watching every episode of Anamaniacs, ever.

Ahem, anyway! There was sewing! Two full finishes!


Casie's T-Shirt Quilt!

And then there were finished tops!


California Girl Hourglass! My OMG goal - and y'all...it almost didn't get done. I was about 1.25x20" short of the white fabric for the stop border. That's right - I considered quitting over a 1.25" strip of fabric.


Finally I noticed the white-on-white fabric I'm using for 4√2, and decided that no one would notice that tiny bit. Right? So it's a top! Finally! Only been in progress since 2012.


And then I finished the log cabin using the leftover fabrics from my Saturday Sampler 2011. Yikes. Talk about some old projects, here. Technically, this one was never started until last year - I just saved all the leftover bits and pieces since 2011.


And then I did some entirely new things! If you don't count the fact that Lori has been buying and sending me the fabric for this one since, um...you know, let's just not talk about that. And yes I worked so hard on the layout and still managed to get those aqua hula girls next to each other. Ugh.

Anyway, all the parts are assembled {this quilt combines vertical and horizontal pieces} and all I have left is sewing together some long sashing strips and big chunks.


And as a leader/ender, I'm sewing together a Floating Star for Quilts of Valor. Super easy - most of my squares are already paired or four-ed, and just waiting to become rows. And I swear, I've seen the tutorial somewhere online, but the kit didn't come with much info.


And I made four demonstration heart blocks for #quiltsforpulse, being organized by the Orlando Modern Quilt Guild. Our guild is making them in 5" and 10" sizes {tutorial here!} and I'll be working on the assembly at our sew day in July.

And that's it! I've also been doing a lot of cleaning, but who really wants to see the bags of batting that I separated into quilts or pillow stuffing?
