Before I get into my sewing updates I just need to say I’m sickened and enraged by the SCOTUS decision released last week. Women have fought hard for equal rights and with one decision we’ve just been set back almost 100 years. To not have full autonomy over our bodies is cruel and inhumane.
Summer Book Club QAL
I’ve almost got the top pieced together and now I need to decide if I want to add a border or leave it alone. The top measures 44×54 which is a generous baby quilt so I may just leave it as is and use a bold fabric for binding… decisions, decisions!
Positivity 2022 QAL
I finally started cutting and piecing some blocks for this project. I’m using a long hoarded layer cake of SunPrint 2019 and I decided to swap 2 squares from SunPrint 2021 to have enough bold prints… hopefully they’ll play nicely together 😉
The yellow & orange fabrics are from 2019, the other two are from 2021. These are the first 8 blocks, only 72 more to go! 😜
I’m disappointed to report there has been absolutely no progress made on this quilt. It’s STILL hanging over my ironing board, basted and ready for quilting. I’m struggling with how I want to quilt it. I think I’ll go back to Debbie’s QAL site and see what she did with this one – maybe that will spur something!
June’s number is 1 and that’s my big Rainbow Postage stamp quilt. Unfortunately I’ve done nothing more than think about completing this project! LOL With only 4 days left in the month, it doesn’t look like I’ll be getting it done…but depending on what number is pulled for July, I might just keep this one on-deck.
Wimbledon starts tomorrow so I’ll be consumed with watching those matches for the next two weeks. Serena is competing again but with this being her first singles tournament since being out 12 months, I don’t have high hopes she’ll make too far 😕 My guesses for who will take the title:
Women’s Winner: Iga Swiatek
Men’s Winner: Novak Djokovic
That’s all for now, have a great rest of your weekend!
