Even though I’ve still been watching Wimbledon every day, I’ve been able to make considerable progress on my quilt along projects. As for my Ladies prediction…Ha, I was not even close! LOL The finalists were Ons Jabeur and Elena Rybakina and the unlikely winner… Rybakina. I think the whole tennis world was pulling for Jabeur but she just couldn’t keep her nerves under control.
Before I get into my quilting updates I wanted to share this blog post from Janis @ RetirementallyChallenged. If you are spending a lot on prescription drugs, please take a moment to check this out: Are You Paying Too Much for Prescription Drugs?
Summer Book Club QAL
I’m happy to report this quilt is completely finished!! Woohoo! I put the final stitches in the binding Thursday evening. I’m really happy with the way this turned out and I’m STILL in love with that backing fabric… I may have to hunt down a few more yards 😜
When I posted this on IG one person asked how I kept the quilting lines so straight. I explained that I used the edge guide that came with my machine. This little tool comes is so handy when straight-line quilting!
I’ve put this quilt up for sale but if I don’t get a buyer I’ll add it to my donation pile 😊
Positivity 2022 QAL
I started making more blocks as soon as I finished the book quilt and I’m more than halfway done… here’s a pic of the first 40
I’m using Alison Glass SunPrint 2019 and these bold colors are just GORGEOUS!! This is not the final layout, I’m just putting them up as I finish the blocks. I may have to see if I have enough of each color to try to organize them in a rainbow theme 🤪
Unfortunately I haven’t done anything for this challenge. I did not complete the project for June (my Rainbow Postage quilt) and the number pulled for July is #4 which is my Skittles quilt. Now I’m torn between two projects I really love… do I finish the June project or move forward with July…???
That’s about all for now… The Men’s final is on and I need to go watch it!
Have a great rest of your weekend!
