Sherri at A Quilting Life has inspired me to think about and list Ten Things I want to do this summer, and Carrie at A Passion for Applique is encouring us to finish UFOs. Several of the things I want to do are on both lists, so this is a dual-duty post.
For UFO finishes in July, I have four things in mind:
For the rest of my Summer of Fun, I have these projects in mind:
6. Catch up on this year's Block of the Week from Primitive Gatherings. We are on Week 5 already, and you can see I only have two done, along with three of the freebie blocks. I haven't trimmed anything yet, because I hate that part and save it for last. I don't know if I'm putting the words on these or not. I'll wait to see what the quilt looks like finished before I decide. I really enjoy sitting on the deck in the summer and working on these, but those days haven't been plentiful this year. Hopefully July and August will be less rainy so I can do that.
8. Start the Quilty Barn Along at Bee In My Bonnet. I don't have pictures, since I haven't started it, but go to the link and you can see lots of cute blocks. I love the tractor she did a couple weeks ago!
11. OK, I have more than Ten Things, apparently. Last but not least, get together with a few quilting friends. One I will see in August, one in September, and one I could see theoretically anytime as we only live 20 minutes apart, but between jobs, families, outdoor work, etc., we just never seem to get together. I'm making that a priority in July!
Thanks for the idea, Sherri! Having a list helps me get things done.
