June Goal and Beyond

I am excited that it is only the middle of June and that I have completed my goal for June.  This quilt top is made with the Chantilly fabric line by Lauren and Jessi Jung.  I really like the cheerful bold colors.  I wanted to get it pieced so that I could give it to my favorite quilter, Leslie.  I do have to get the back ready before I see Leslie in July.  I took this picture at the last Sit and Sew I attended. I went there determined to complete this top and share my "ta da" before moving on to any other projects.

I will link this up with ALYOF 2015 later this month.

The picture below is of a box of fabric I won in a giveaway.  The box arrived all the way from Switzerland from Vreni who blogs at Oops-Lah.  Vreni just moved from Singapore to Switzerland.

I have already started thinking about how to use these fabrics.

I have a link on my sidebar to That Quirky Scrap Quilt Along.  I was not planning to join any new stitch alongs or start new projects until completing some of the many projects I have started.  This project helps take care of scraps and my basket was overflowing, and still is by the way.  These are the blocks I have completed so far for this project.   It is going to be really scrappy.

While sorting through scraps and straightening up my sewing room I made a stack of some of the projects pieced together and waiting to be completed.  This is the pile I made in just a few minutes.  I can see 13 projects and that does not count those in process.  It is time to get these things completed don't you think.  Do any of you who quilt or sew have so many unfinished projects waiting for you?  


  1. Well done on your June goal, you are well ahead. I love that zig-zag quilt top and the colours are beautiful. Good idea about the scrap quilt along. I should do something about my scraps too. Glad to know that the little box of fabrics arrived at your end. Thanks for your email letting me know.

  2. That zig zag is beautiful. Have fun with the QAL. I have a hard time resisting them too.

  3. Hi Sherry. I love your completed quilt top. Those zig zags are so pretty! I have a mountain of unfinished quilt tops, too. And I Keep adding to it instead of subtracting!
