It’s June Already!
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.
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.
And how great these flowers look with the flowers in the fabric.
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.
I’ll be linking up with Patchwork Times and What A Hoot.
