June – A Lovely Year of Finishes – Mid-Month Check In

It is the middle of June already, I’m not quite sure how we got here and I am actually beginning to think that this project might be making time move even faster – funny how deadlines can do that! So I am halfway finished with my goal for the month. I wanted to have my quilt finished and my pattern written. Well, the quilt is done, I will give you a couple sneaky peeks here but the pattern…let’s just say I am having trouble sitting at the computer.

I did a machine binding, for no other reason that hand bindings hurt my hands, but I decided to jazz it up with a fun wavy stitch on my machine. I love the added pop of color and fun it adds.

I did almost entirely swirls for the quilting, in the actual “pictures” I did some free motion quilting around the birds and the butterflies in the prints, but I will show those when I reveal the whole quilt at the end of the month. Here are some of my swirls.

Now it is your turn! Show us your progress! Don’t forget you can link up here with me or with Shanna, you don’t have to link with both of us, we have worked out the computer magic that your entry appears on both our blogs.
