It's time to come up with June's One Monthly Goal. I want to get several sets of blocks into quilts. Many of these blocks were made by bees I was/am in. I was going to make one large quilt and one smaller quilt. Except -- I didn't have enough fabrics. These have been languishing in my UFO piles for way too many years. So, my goal is to make several smaller quilts from them. I know I will make at least 2 quilts and probably a third one.
Here's the first one already sewn together:
We're at the beach house so I'm using the quilt that hangs in the main room as the backing for my design wall. I have a piece of flannel fabric carefully pinned to the quilt and the top pinned on to the flannel. (No, this isn't the best way to get a design wall but it works here and I am very careful when I pin blocks or quilts.)
My goal is to put the blocks together, border (if needed), quilt and bind at least 2 of these quilts. This one was sewn together this morning. It is probably the largest of the possible 3 quilts. Hopefully by the time we leave I'll have all three tops done along with some other sewing.
Here's a little pigeon who came to visit our deck at home this past week. He (she?) is a gorgeous color especially all fluffed up. Notice he is banded. When we tried to get closer he "unfluffed) and then flew away.
Pat found out that a banded pigeon might be a racing pigeon or homing pigeon. We have no idea which this one is but I do get a kick out of seeing some wild life around home.
I'm linking up with Elm Street Quilts, Needle and Thread Thursdays and Can I get a Whoop Whoop? (I'll add this link when it is posted.)
That's it for me today. I'll be back in my little sewing nook tomorrow morning then spend the afternoon at the beach or shopping.
Happy Quilting All! Bonnie
