One Block Wonder

I've been working on a new quilt. A one block wonder from a panel this time. I thought I'd try something a bit new. Layout is now complete, and I've finished appliqueing where the blocks intersect the panel. Building rows now, so it should be a top shortly. I haven't decided if it needs borders or not.

July Finishes

I managed to squeak out two finishes last month. I finished my Bonnie Hunter "En Provence" quilt - this is my second of two, using the blocks I made.  The first was a charity donation last year. This one I'll keep, and I finally found a chance to get it quilted and bound.

After that it was coming down to the wire, but a final charity project off the longarm and  that was number two.

And now it's time to look ahead at August UFO plans. Patchwork Times tells me UFO #3 is up.  And APQ has picked #8. The good news is that I finished #8 in March, when Patchwork Times drew that number. So I'll set my sights on #3 - my Kaffe Jacob's ladder quilt - and see if I can get that one done this month.
