End of June Update

 It has been hot, humid and rainy the last couple of weeks.  I've spent a lot of time in my cool basement sewing room.  I have a few things to share.

1.  June's Monthly Mini

I love how this turned out.  I didn't want to do it in red, white and blue.  These fabrics worked out for me.

2.  Celebrating Mary Brown


The original block for this month was a bit too complicated for me so I chose instead to make a pieced block.  July's block is going to be an owl.  I can't wait.

3.  Mrs. Lincoln's Quilt




This month's pieced and appliqued block.  I can't believe Julie and I are almost done with this sewalong.  Only 4 more blocks to make.  I can't wait.

4.  A Finish


This quilt is a pattern by Cheri Payne called "Forget me Not".  I finished the top a few years ago and decided I wanted to finish it.

I have kept up with all my BOM's, and BOW's but didn't want to bore you with all the photos.  I will share a few.  With summer finally here we are hoping to do some camping.  We are going camping with my daughter Kelley for the 4th of July weekend.

Thank you so much for stopping by.  I appreciate your comments.

Hugs, Cathy

I like your June Monthly mini quilt. The colors are great and you did a great job matching up those lines on the fabric from top to bottom. Very nice. Forget me Not is a great quilt too. Congratulations on getting it finished. Thats always a great feeling.

Was a great choice.

Lovely blocks, Cathy! My sis passed away and I have been swamped with her end of life stuff. But I am making progress on my blocks too!

Your mini is perfect for summer. Things don't always have to be R/W/B to be patriotic.
Lovely blocks--I especially like the Mary Brown block.
Great finish on the Cheri Payne quilt!

I love the colors you chose for your mini, as I’m not particularly fond of red white and blue. The two little red berries though .. perfect! Also perfect are your blocks, as always. I adore your Cheri quilt! I like your use of the brighter colors. Nice work, all the way around!

I spend a lot of my time in my cool basement too. Your little eagle is just perfect for the season.

I do love your mini and to my eyes it looks just as patriotic as red white and blue. The browns and green are a tribute to the generations of American farmers who made this country the 'breadbasket of the world.'

Such wonderful quilts, Cathy! I love the eagle quilt and especially that you chose shades of brown. It's perfect.
And "Forget Me Not"-- such a beautiful and dear quilt.
Your other blocks are beautiful, too, and I especially like your Mrs. Lincoln's block.
