June NewFO


Wow, hard to believe not only is the month over, but half the year is,too!  And I was going to take it easy this month because of all the big quilts that came about in May - well...............

   

Two quilts for Oklahoma, aprons made during the new Christmas QAL, and a Jelly Roll project with a new QAL.

  

Joined in with the Flower Patch QAL and Bea's Sampler QAL.

   

Taking part in the Kate Spain challenge and my Monthly Doll Quilt Swap.

And just for fun and because that fabric has sat long enough on the shelf...


Who doesn't love the Cat In The Hat?  I love that this panel has the entire story printed on it - a snuggle quilt and a book in one!  I quilted just some waves across and the did a few echo rows around the cat - just enough to give it some hold, but not spoil the ability to read the story.


And I used that great Character print for the back, too - like an Eye Spy that kids can enjoy picking out the character for the story and remember maybe a bit of some story line.


I've always wanted to do a Suduko Quilt and what better than with a FQ bundle of The Lorax.  I have to admit I don't remember this one.  I think I will pick up a book to go with each quilt and then have a nice gift set when needed.


I had just enough of this checked flannel for the back and threw in some fun stripe for the binding.  I used just a simple meander for this one.

I have pulled some projects for July, but I was shocked when I found these............



 















I really got to work on getting used to this new camera!!  Well, any way - I thought these were lost to the winds - either thrown out by mistake or packed in a box of items gifted on.  These are from Red Brolly BOM "Catalicious" in 2010!  If you click her name it will take  you right to the page of free blocks pdf's.  I just bought a FQ Bundle that will work with these and have a sketch worked out for layout - July's big NewFO project.

I will be linking up with Barbara at CatPatches - be sure to see what NewFOs others have worked on for the month of June.

Sewingly Yours,
Sharon

  14. June really was a great month for your. I love the 2 Doctor Seuss projects. They will make great gifts when paired with the books. I remember saving the "Catalicious" patterns, but of course I never made them. They will make up into a lovely quilt. I'm sure Moe and Bella will approve.

  15. After I left a comment, I noticed you have the Love Entwined button. Esther's quilt looks amazing. I have saved the patterns from her last few quilts, hopefully someday I will confident in my applique to make one.
