July OMG 2018

Time to be bold and announce my new goal for July.  

I’m not really going to be all that bold this month, since I am making time for family and sunny days!

I will be piecing three 5 inch blocks for the Squared Away Sampler project.  You can see my progress so far this year by clicking here.

My next goal for the month is to make progress on my President’s book.  Nope, not the President of the United States, but blocks that were given to me for serving my term as a quilt guild president.

I left off turning the blocks into pages for a fabric memory book that I can use for a keepsake.  You can see that post from one year ago here.  (It is a coincidence that I worked on this project in July last year, and have chosen it as my project for July this year.)

President's Blocks

I believe I have 36 pages to quilt.  They shouldn’t take long, and they wouldn’t, if it was winter and I could stay in my cozy home all day long (which I can’t because of the day job).  But it is summer, and the sunshine calls, so I am making this easy on myself.  I am going to quilt six pages for the month.

Speaking of sunshine, there will be time for strolling in the garden!

  3. I love the idea of a memory book with blocks! Looking good. Flowers are so pretty – No green thumb around here! Just dry hot air and very little break from the 100’s. Have a great 4th
