A Lovely Year of Finishes – July Goal Post

alyof2015Welcome to July! The year is now half over and it might even be time for you to start busting out those Christmas presents. Some of us are not that great at last minute sewing, so we may as well start now!

This month I will be working on 4 major projects, all with a July deadline, two for July 15th and two for July 31st, but since we only set one goal for A Lovely Year of Finishes, I am picking the Modern Quilt Guild Riley Blake fabric challenge.  Submissions are due on July 31st and I am hoping to be done by then. I started yesterday…

Riley Black 2015 Challenge - https://www.sewbittersweetdesigns.comI made my own template for a 15 degree wedge and just kind of winged it. I have a plan for how I want to quilt it, I just hope with all my other looming deadlines I can get it done!

How about you?

What one item will you choose?

You have two requirements to be entered into the prizes this month.

1. Link-up {on this post} the first 7-days of the month
