June OMG 2018 Update

Time to report how I managed my June goals!

Goal 1 was to piece two backing fabrics for two sweet (and very large) quilts; Sugar Town and The Butterfly Garden.

Check.

I took the photos on a very, very bright sunny day, so the color is washed out, but you can still see that this is one large quilt backing!

Goal 2 was to piece strips together to make binding for the Friendship Row by Row quilt. (Click here, here, here, here,and here)

Check.

Mom gave me an old small floral fabric from her stash and it is perfect for this quilt!

I not only prepared the binding, but I finished sewing it to the quilt!

    • I love the detail on the quilt, too. So many good memories…a few of the contributors have passed on, or moved on, so all I have are the memories. I am glad that I finished this friendship quilt!

      I have several different varieties of peony…love them all! This one is my largest…as big as a dinner plate!
