June's Long Term


I've pulled another long term project that should make the month feel a little productive.  This was another project that was headed to the guild 'free' table, but the member shoved it into my hands and said ' this is you'.  SO - home it came.  Some of the little blocks were made, some cut and pinned up and some I had to totally make.  The pattern was in the bag so I was going with her plan, but there was not enough of the background from the original quilter - heck, go scrappy.

 For some reason I have enough sub-units for four blocks, but need just three more to complete the top.  Well, I'll chose what looks well in the setting (it's all an old Moda line) and the left over one will be a pillow.

These are laid by the machine and I'll fill in the diagonal rows to stitch together as I have some time.  

My son has cancer surgery (3rd) so I'll be hospital hopping and after care.  Yes he's an adult, but they are always our babies - especially when they are ill.

Our guild has a Quilt show as well, so busy with that thru the month.  I'll take time to breathe when I come out on the other side. 

Sewingly Yours,
