With that finished, I've got a bunch of pieces of various projects floating around the sewing room, just waiting for those projects to be finished up. Lots and lots of pieces. Good thing I know where they go! Let's take a look--
First up is the June quilt quilt along from crazymomquilts. I've got all the pieces finished and laid out on the design wall and have started putting it together:
You can see that I made a mistake and cut the corners from the cornerstone fabric instead of the background, so this corner is wrong. The correct fabric is pinned up there so I can fix it later, and the other corners are fine. I'm hoping to have this all together this week, just so I can take it off the wall and put something else up there.
The second project that I'm working on involves making a *ton* of these units:
These are the last units I have to make for the En Provence quilt that I started making last winter. This was Bonnie Hunter's mystery quilt, and it has--as usual--lots and lots of pieces. I've made all the other units, but I've put off making these ones until the end. I know these are really useful units, but for some reason I've just been dreading making them. I just think they're really fussy to cut, and they take a lot of time to cut correctly. That notch is really important, but somehow I mess it up. I've got about 200 of these to make in various colors, so I don't see myself finishing them before the end of the summer. But at least I've started!
Finally (at least for now), I have these pieces for the Steps to the Garden blocks for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge:
Last month's color was green, and since there's so much green in the blocks already, I skipped the green month. Since I only need 30 blocks, I was going to skip one month anyway. This month was yellow and I thought for sure I'd have a bunch of yellows. I was wrong! What I did have was some pretty greens that won't get lost with the other greens that are already in the block. I have plenty of yellows, but only one that I really want to use in this quilt, so it looks like I have to go shopping or something, right?
Anyway, I'm going to make the Steps blocks as soon as I finish piecing the June quilt. Maybe this week? Maybe not. I guess we'll see!
Hope you're having a lovely week! The weather here is beautiful so far this week, so I'm glad I'm no longer trapped in the library. Paper's still boring, but at least the stitching is not!
