Wow, if you were wondering...


No water was spilled on the worktable during Jolina's visit.  She is not the capital A artist that her sister is.

 That is okay.  I am hoping for capital Q quilter as she is quite domestic.  ;~)

I took the border off the basket quilt and resewed it.  ;(  The problem seemed to be the skinny inner polka dot border.  I may look at this again when I quilt it because it never gets better, it gets worse.  This will be checked off as a finished top and awaits quilting which may become the focus of the months for next year. :(

I unearthed every pink I could find to get all my rabbits 'penned'.  As this evolves I see I need setting triangles.  ???  Solids to the rescue!   At least that is what I'm thinking.

awk, I was going for all different frames and I see I have a double.  I shall leave it.  But...   I am stopping with this photo as I may need to change those three darks.  ???   I'm also thinking that these sorta traditional and, lets face it, cute blocks are beginning to show where my heart is NOT!  Do I really want cute on my front room wall!  :0

Now this actually got a comment from the Rooster as he 'thought' this was kinda bright for me.  lol  I do LUV it.  The half square triangle's are small and I now realize are actually quarter square triangles that I am sewing into HST's.  I used the wrong die when I started cutting.  Die cutting is still pretty new to me.  I do hope I can get the bias edges to behave.  vbsigh  I fussy cut the last 18 theme triangles to get the finished size.  The print is an old fabric that has survived many purges.  I'm so glad that Vicki's HSTeria quilt along coaxed me into doing this!  Now this will go up as a wall hanging as I hate to think what it'll shrink to when sewn together!   I'm just not sure for which month.  September?  The good news is that I'll have all month to quilt it!  ;~)

July's idea is still up on the design wall.  I don't want another cute wallhanging!  I am linking up with The Needle & Thread Network.  I am wondering what everyone has been up to. If anyone else is wondering, well, wonder no more; just click the link!  :)  Yay for sunshine even if I still have my sweater on!

good luck taming all those triangles! I do like your pink and know what you mean about making quilts that reflect *you*. I find some of my quilts reveal a lighter, more feminine side. Fun to explore, but not to live with LOL! Your July idea looks fun - enjoy!

Hard to believe you need a sweater when we are too hot here. Where is a nice balance to the weather? Lots of fabric stitching going on for you. A quilt a month is daunting to me but you are sewing right along...hooray! Creative Stitching Bliss Dear...

you've been busy! Like those HSTs, and what's on the board for July - but like you, I'm not in to cutesy wall hangings. My husband and I are always at odds over what I should make/hang!

If the bunnies are too cute for your wall, it might make a great cuddle quilt for a grandchild...or two. I love the colours in all those HST's and the fabrics/colours for July's quilt are beautiful.

What a great colourful HST quilt, what size are the triangles?

You certainly have a lot going on, but then if you have sweater weather you probably spend less time outside. I only seem to come in to drag dirt in, wonder who messes up my studio while I am playing in my flowers. Hope you'll get some nice warm summer weather soon!
