Let's Book It - June 2016

Dust Off Those Books
I am a day late - gosh, I had two weeks til' the end of the month and suddenly it was two days!  Hope you all enjoyed the book, magazine, saved file, or hidden resource this month.  I will be rolling mine into July as it took longer than expected.  You don't need a finish, just enjoy your project.  But if you have a project that is going to take a few months, please just do the same - roll it on until you are finished.


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

I managed to get the center done, but in order to progress I needed the setting fabric which I had to purchase - I don't have yardage in my stash.

I went on that lovely shopping trip for my setting fabric and have pulled some things off the shelf for the other border and for binding.  As I looked more and more at this center, things weren't right.  I was missing a row.  I need a 9 by 9 row piece to turn on point and it was 8 by 9.

And each of those corners needs 17 rail block units - I have a lot of rails to make yet!!  That is why I am rolling this one into July.  Plus, my July is rather booked, so I don't want to add a new project - rather concentrate on a finish.

This month's charm will be the PatchWork Heart - mine is the special edition pink that is no longer available:


Now it's your turn to share: 


  1. It's looking great! I don't gave yardage in my stash, either. Probably why it takes me forever to finish a quilt! Keep up the good work! XO

  2. Wow....all those pieces makes my head hurt. All your quilting projects are amazing.

  3. It's going to look great when you're done, rails always eat up lots of scraps too.

  4. Your center looks great! This going to be a beautiful quilt. Sometimes it is hard to find quilting time in the summer.

  5. Hi Sharon,wow you did a wonderful job,it looks great my friend ....

  6. I love the colorwash look. That looks great.

  7. Very fun quilt. The colorwash looks great.
