June Wrapup/July Beginning

Here was my list at the beginning of June and here is how I have done.
  1. Finish Spring Blooms Mini-Quilt Swap. DONE
  2. Finish putting together Zigzag quilt. GETTING THERE
  3. Do my colour blocks for the 4SQS summer block swap. DONE
  4. Start working on my pincushion for the swap. PATTERN CHOSEN
  5. Make a test starry web block. STARTED
  6. Keep working on my dad's quilt. DONE
  7. Catch up on the 9 patch quilt a long. PROGRESSING
  8. Put the binding on my Spring Meadow Quilt. DONE (last few stitches done on July 1st)

I like putting the words beside the list. It makes it look like I have accomplished so much. I have done pretty well. Once I added more light to the sewing room, I noticed that a few of my zigzag seams were quite scant so I am going to redo them.

My first batch for the 4SQS Summer Block Swap has been received.

I changed my mind a couple of times for my pincushion but now I have my pattern picked out. It is really cute. I started to make my starry web block and then realized that the paper pieced pattern was only 78% of the actual size and that I need to enlarge it before I make it. I only had one small section done, so I really did not lose any work. My dad's blocks are done and now comes the hard part of figuring out where everything should go. I am making progress on my 9 patch quilt a long, but I realized that I wanted to keep the yellow centres all the same colour. I did not have enough of it so I have ordered some more. I did get my binding on my Spring Meadow quilt done on Wednesday, so it is my first finish of July.

Here is the list for July

1. Finish Zig Zag Quilt.
2. Complete Halloween Block Swap.
3. Complete 4SQS Summer Block Swap.
4. Make pincushion for the swap.

Notice the shorter list. This is what absolutely has to be done. No summer vacation for me!

Hi Michelle,
Thanks for visiting my blog. :) It made me happy to see someone had visited and thought enough to post. I will be posting some pics next week when I get home, but for now I am just enjoying the blogging world and dreaming. :) I have been to the blogs you enjoy and from there, it seems an endless, timeless journey. I love it.
The work on your blog is beautiful. I look forward to spending some time here.

Thanks so much for your words of encouragement about my Spooktacular Swap blocks... as a first-timer I was pretty nervous to join, so it means a lot to me! I can't wait to see your starry web blocks!
