Summer is Finally Here!!!

The sun is shining and the temps are up...so is the humidity.

I have been working on my June "To Do" list.  I'm going to be 2 blocks short of what I planned to do.  But that is okay.


These are the 5 Log Cabin Bow Tie Blocks.  I've been working on this quilt for about 2 years.  I don't work on it too often.  I had 32 blocks made and now have 37.  Not sure how big I want to make the quilt but I know I need quite a few more.  So I will try and make at least 5 blocks a month.  Obviously I'm not in a big hurry...lol

Next...


I finished another APQ QAL Block.  Another 15 blocks to go.  Another slow but steady quilt.

I finished the binding on my Log Cabin quilt and it is now hanging up on the wall.


It looks so cute hanging in my living room.  

I started working on a Season's Block of the Month by Pat Sloan a while ago.  I am such a great fan of her work.  I started this last year in April...and only finished the April block.


This is April's block.


This is the book the quilt is in.


This is the quilt.


This is May's block.

Now I need to get some more blocks prepped.  Hopefully I can get this one done by next year.

The only thing missing from my "To Do" list is some of my Common Threads blocks.  I have the appliqued block prepped.  But I still need to make a couple of pieced blocks.  I guess they will have to wait till next month.

Next month will be a slow sewing month.  Hoping to get away for a couple of weeks traveling.  But we'll see.

For now....thanks for stopping by and keep cool.  Enjoy your weekend.

Hugs, Cathy

Nice work - can't pick a favorite because I love them all. That second one sure looks pretty next to its mates - the secondary pattern is wonderful. If you drive up I-75 give me a buzz - maybe we can meet for a coffee or Dairy Queen!

Love the little log cabin quilt, and that Seasons BOM is beautiful!

Your ongoing projects look good, too. Don't know if I would have the patience for the log cabin bow tie, but it is a fun idea!

I haven't made any log cabin blocks in a good while. I like them so much and have wanted to sew some. Yours look very good.
