These are the blocks I had finished before the challenge:
Over the past two weeks, I've picked out fabrics, cut, basted and pinned the remaining five blocks, and yesterday I got started stitching and finished the July "Sneakers" block,
and August's "Summer Wedding."
Three more to go. And I'd really like to finish them this week. (They look nearly done, but they're only pinned. Lots of stitching yet to do...)
These were designed for fusible applique, but for some reason I chose to make mine with needle-turned hand applique. What was I thinking???
Other quilty "to-do's" for this week:
Add borders, layer and pin my mom's birthday quilt
Get started on my November "Get 'er Done" pillow project
Plan two baby quilts that I need to start on soon!
I'm really going to have to pick up the pace if I want to accomplish close to what I did last month. If I could just get rid of this rotten cold/flu/whatever I have... :oP
Wish me luck! (I'm gonna need it!)
*Design Wall = whatever is currently spread out on my sewing room floor -- wouldn't it be great to have an actual design wall???
