Updates on Sewing Up My Fabric!

Since I originally posted my description of this blog, I have somewhat erred from my intention. I have actually bought much more fabric than I had but ................. in my defense, I got the solids at 50% off and the quilt shop fabric at 75% off, so that doesn't count, right? LOL

OMG - One Monthly Goal for June

One Monthly Goal for June

Ok, this is a 2014 Row x Row quilt designed by Deana named "Quilter's Garden". You can find the post by clicking here.

My goal for June is to get this top completely assembled.  This entire quilt is hand appliqued. I need to do a little more embellishing on some blocks and assemble the rows and make the borders. I really want to finish this quilt, but the little things I need to do to finish just seem to overwhelm me, so I won't even plan on getting it quilted this month!

Please go to Elm Street Quilts to see what others have planned for this month!

Another Finish - April OMG - better late than never!

April OMG - One Monthly Goal
Here is a link to my original April goal.

I didn't have too much to do, just cut and sew the sashing and border and quilt it but I just didn't make the binding in time.  To me, it isn't finished if it isn't bound!

A look at the backing.

Thanks for looking!

OMG for May - I finished in time - just barely!

I wasn't sure I was going to make this one either but I managed to get it done in the nick of time!
Here is a link to my May OMG plans.

close up of quilting - I used one of the flower motifs in Lori Kennedy's FMQ book for all of the blocks.

I used a ruler that I have had for a while but never had used.  It was just the right size for the plain outer borders.

I used my latest technique for pinwheels.  I like the square quilting in there.

I finished off with a fabric bowl.  I had a lot of little strips of fabric left over.  So glad I got that used up.

OMG - One Monthly Goal for May

OMG for May

These blocks were from a 2011 Saturday Sampler at my LQS.
  1. I still need to make the December block. (I bought the finishing kit and managed to get all the pieces cut last week!) 
  2. I need to make (13) 12" alternate blocks.
  3. The outer border has pinwheel blocks all around it which I still need to make.
  4.  Quilt 
  5.  Bind
Just a Little Side Note
I have submitted an OMG project every month this year and have finished them all, but somehow at the end of the month, I still have the binding left!  
I have only been able to submit one this year so far.  
Maybe this month will be different.
At least I am getting one a month finished and bound even if I don't make the deadline!
That's what I am telling myself anyway!

Good luck to every on finishing their projects this month!

RSC16 finally quilted and bound

RSC16 Quilted and Bound
 I have been following Angela Walters and her FMQ Challenge. Click here to go to her YouTube Channel to check it out!
I tried to take each row and apply one of her techniques to it.
It was fun and challenging.
