I'm hoping June will be a much better weather month as I would like to spend more time outside; whether is is for longer walks, some play in the flower beds, or a few day trips. So I am keeping my June goals list on the short side.
I will be using the Monthly Doll Quilt Swap as my NewFO Challenge. I've already been in touch with my partner and have a plan in place.
I pulled 6 different books to browse with my SIL and it was funny that we both chose the same book - different patterns, but the same book. So the others were put back on the shelf for future play.
She has the orange sticky note to mark her page and I have an up-coming Quilt Show card marking mine (one of those day trips I want to take).
I'm combining my Let's Book It with my Something New..........
because I am using Batiks. I have used a few odds/ends in scrap quilts - something someone passed on to me in a scrap bag, but never a full quilt. A first and a challenge. I am sure to call on a few individuals for help if I need it.
I participated in Beth Shibley's house block lotto 2013 and won a set of blocks. I don't want them to sit too long, so getting these into a lap quilt will be my Something Old.
I just have to quilt my Relaxing Round Robin, but that will be my Slow Stitching Sunday project as I want to hand quilt it - that may take me a couple of months to complete.
The color this month for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge is yellow. I dug out that little baggy and there isn't a lot so I will have to pull my FQ tote and maybe some yardage off the shelf. I'll be honest, I usually do ALL of my blocks in one day as I want to get thru those scraps, trim up left overs into my pre-cut system and get the mess done with. So this will be a good rainy day project.
I am enjoying the Make it Homemade Christmas Challenge and it will be the project that I am using for the Simply Small Challenge - we can chose any project using candy charms from the Moda Bake Shop site and I have my pattern selected.
I'm hoping to finish the quilting on this piece - one of my Let's Book It projects. I just have the flag section and the borders to do - another rainy day project. The binding is made and waiting. I know there are two more smaller wall hanging that need quilting, but no pressure to add them to the list.
And then you never know what my eye sees or my hand touches - I tend to get side tracked and spend a day or two playing with something else. I've tried to tuck those distractions away.
I hope you have a Joyful June,
