Monday Meanderings 7 - 2 - 2018

Welcome July!  (Yes we are halfway through the year!) 

I'm sharing Beachside Bungalow, now known as Celebrate.  I had time today to lay out the blocks and I've got half of them sewn into rows.
The upper right side blocks to about the center are in rows.  Tuesday (or maybe today) I'll get more rows sewn together.  I'm loving this quilt!  I need to find some backing fabric for this one.  Maybe a nice bright red!  

I finished the customer quilt I showed here. It's nice to get another quilt finished and back into the hands of a happy owner.  I know I have a few more quilts coming in over the next few weeks.  Enough time to do my own quilts in between keeping Ruthie happy with other quilts.  (On the other hand I probably have 10 quilts of varying sizes of my own waiting to be quilted.  My thought is it takes less room to store an unquilted top.)  

It's my turn with my FCQ Equilters group. I checked my computer file for ideas but I just wasn't sure what I wanted to use.  Then I started looking at some of my books and found California Cruisin' by Terry Atkinson.  I thought her Stash Dash Fat Quarter quilt would be great.  This was my first sample block.  I decided I would ask for red, white and blue after I made this block.  I guess I'll make some more kid friendly blocks so this one can find a home.  

My goals didn't get completed but I know I had a lot of things on that list. I'm happy with what I did get done with though.
