So a long story to get to my June OMG:
I will have the center pieces cut out and all the units made for the blocks.
All the blocks are finished.
They don't look like all that many, do they?
I slapped some up on my design wall because I wanted to decide on the setting blocks for them. I wasn't thrilled with the look from the book. So I decided to audition fabrics from my stash.
The red is red on red polka dots. Beneath it is black. Hum, what do you think?
The top one is the background fabric. Next is a dark mottled blue. Which do you like better? Dum, dum, dum du, dum, dum, dum, du.... a little musical interlude while you decide. It took me about 2 seconds...
I liked using the background fabric. Except ... I made several cutting mistakes as I was working and even though I had lots more fabric, I didn't have enough to cut all of the triangles. Sigh. I spent a morning looking at all my favorite and unknown online fabric sources with no luck. I finally checked on Etsy and found several different sources. I'm not much of an Etsy shopper so I was surprised I happened to pick a shop two states away. The fabric arrived 3 days later so I am ready to work on this again. Of course, I don't have the time right now but soon. I want to have the whole quilt finished by the next guild meeting on 7/14. Hey, two weeks. I should be able to get that done!
So OMG is done for June. I'll be figuring out my July goal soon.
I'm linking up with Needle and Thread Thursday and Elm Creek Quilts One Monthly Goal Finish Link Up.
I'll leave you with a car "decoration" from a fellow guild member. I like it! And, sorry for the photographer's reflection.
Happy Quilting All! Bonnie
