Let's Book It - July 2016

Dust Off Those Books
I carried over my June project because I wanted to be sure I finished it.  Now you don't have to have a finish and you can keep using your project for as lomg as needed, but I knew this one would become a UFO if I didn't keep on.



My project was this lovely rail fence colorwash in Marti Mitchell's "Quilting for People Who Still Don't Have Time to Quilt".


Yes, I not only trucked thru the center piecing, setting pieces, but also THREE borders!  I hate borders.


It was a bright, muggy, hot day - and I take crap photos - so this is a bit misty looking.  Yes,


the binding still has to be finished.  I have three days left in the month, so this is doable.  I will be ready to move on to a new project.

This month 's charm is the Windmill Star:

       

Now it's your turn to share:

  8. Most of my projects this month are self designed, but, I'll enter my Be Attitudes, since I'll be doing the embroidery on it for a while. You'll get that binding done soon. Just watch a movie or two.
