What was done in June!!!

The biggest challenge this month was to try to get everything done.  Last month I finished two of the "Blocks of the Month", Material girls, and Down the Rabbit Hole.  These two were what I promised to complete for the "A Lovely Year of Finishes" (see to the side).  Although I promised to complete these two quilts (sandwich, quilt, bind, the whole thing), I still have a large list of things to do.  The bold items are the ones that I am behind in.  My main goal is to keep up with the BOMs but the appliques are just not happening (the sycamore rose block is 4 months behind now.

I can honestly say that I am disappointed with myself this month.  I understand why I am behind but still, I should of enjoyed relaxing more with the quilting, and July is almost a write off because I'm away travelling.  So that will be the perfect time to do some of the applique for the sycamore rose quilt blocks.  I really need to catch up on those.

  • Material Girl's Layer Cake finishing off the quilt (put the borders on it) and quilt the entire things.  Finish it off. - put it all together, got borders, and have started quilting but it will take me ages...
  • Down the Rabbit Hole - finish off the quilt.  I love it - Here's the link to pictures.

  • Galaxy of the Stars - May - from FVRQ Guild. Did it on Sunday.   
  • Galaxy of the Stars - June only.  They gave us June and July to do over the summer. But I never had time to complete it.  Been too Busy.

  • Finish table runner beads on a string (Couldn't find it!!!! It will show up at some time.)
  • Aurifill's quilt for the end of bed (2 rows completed, need one more row, and binding)
  • Do the modern quilt that I have cut out - green and purple for the newFO Challenge
  • Another 3D quilt for the newFO Challenge - it wasn't flowers, it was a box and I showed my quilting guild how to make the small box so this one had two purposes.  But it's completed.
  • Want to cut out material for a Swoon quilt
  • New Quilt cutting out.
    • Completed!!!  It's not a swoon but a carpenter star quilt.  I found the pattern at this link - it's a free pdf file.  Here's a picture of the pattern I will be doing. I'm excited to start it.  Using gold and brown in it as well, but not the horses.
  • Did 5 more Thangles  quilt blocks from two packages.  Looking good.

Had a bad month this month.  I was on strike which meant that I was busy on the strike picketing line, and nervous about what was happening.  I was so exhausted because I stress that I hardly sewed.  But my main goals were to complete those two quilts (first two listed), and when doing that I had enough left over material from the "Down the Rabbit Hole" that I made a third one.  Two for the price of one.
