Little Bit of This & A Little Bit of That

I didn’t make as much progress on my quilting projects in June as I had hoped. However small progress is better than no progress and perhaps I will do better in July.

The picture didn’t lie – Diamond Stars quilt top was 1/2″ wider through the middle. I am blaming those long skinny side triangles, however they have been pruned to the correct width. It is a subtle difference, but I felt it was worth the time to fix the issue.

The next project on the UFO list was Emerson’s Snail #2. Last year I made this wall-hanging for Emerson from her drawing.

I always intended to make a second wall-hanging for me and now is the time. Once I decided on the border, it was a quick piecing project. It will take longer to machine quilt the snail than it did to complete the quilt top.

I want this hanging on my wall sooner rather than later, so it is on my July to-do list right after two birthday quilts.

First up is Mini-Metro which is currently on the frame. It is being quilted with Baptist Fans and the most challenging part is not sewing the pockets shut.

Mini-Metro is a birthday gift for my brother and needs to be finished by the end of July. I am also working on a 39″ wall-hanging as a birthday gift for my eldest daughter. July is full of birthdays in our family and this year seems to be full of quilty gifts.

    I have a friend working on similar stars. Love the snail. Wish I had been inspired to quilt some of my grand-daughter’s early art. She’s now a HS junior and her art is too sophisticated for me now!

      If you can find some of her early art, you could make a pillow or small wall-hanging for a high school graduation gift. However I do understand, I have 12 grandchildren and this is the only art piece that became a quilt.
