It’s June Already!

Block 4
This is the only thing on my Design Wall this morning.  He is Block 4 of the FatCatPatterns BOM.  He is much larger than the previous owls so was much easier to put together.  However since he was last month’s block, I still have one more owl to do this month to be caught up.









barn project plan
This is a picture of my next project.  I have decided to use these barns for part of the backing for my Funky Chickens.  The current plan is to make five (they are 14” finished”) and will be the center of the back.  I will make the 6” blocks for the barn sides and then the barns themselves.  My barns, I think, will be gray (weathered) and the quilt blocks will be bright, like the chickens.  At least that is the plan right now.

What I mostly have been doing is the quilting on this.

I continue to be impressed with this panto.













quilting & flowers
And how great these flowers look with the flowers in the fabric.










JRQAL binding
The little bit of actual sewing I got done this weekend was to get the binding ready for this quilt.  I really like to have it waiting when a quilt comes off the frame so I can get it finished right away. 






Today I have laundry, pool cleaning, and computer work (this post, draw barn blocks in EQ, EQ drawing lesson #2, and grocery list prep) to do plus grocery shopping before I can find my way back to the studio.  Wish me luck in getting it all done so I can play.  Angel

I’ll be linking up with Patchwork Times and What A Hoot.

that is a great panto, what's the name of it? Looks wonderful on your quilt.

Bonnie said...

Yes, ditto Sue's question. Although, I think you might have mentioned it a while ago...but I really like it. And, maybe I deserve a new panto in the fall. Ruthie is down until the new room is done.

Your to-do list is ambitious but it looks as though your priorities are in good order! The barn project looks like fun.

I love the quilting on your quilt. The owl is so cute, too. I hope you get your errands done to get back to the sewing studio soon!

Heidi said...

Yes, he has a stern wise owl look! And that barn will be a fun backing for the chickens -

Your owl is too cute. He looks like he is just barely awake. Great choice in your fabrics for him. Do your owls have names? This one sure has lots of personality and I think he deserves one. Funny our guild (Sunshine Quilt Guild) is using the barn pattern for this month's BOM. I haven't started mine yet. Will get to it in the next day or so...it's due a week from today! Lovely quilting.

What a grumpy old owl wise he is, I love him. I like the idea you have for the barns, looking forward to seeing those. Your quilting design looks lovely, as you said perfect with the flower fabric. Cheers Glenda
