July has gone by very fast! At least for me it has. I’ve had a great time visiting with family this month and enjoying the summer days!
Not a lot of sewing has been accomplished, but it is time to share how I did with meeting my OMG (One Monthly Goal) for July.
Goal 1 was to piece three 5 inch blocks for the Squared Away Sampler project. I completed this goal and you can see my progress by clicking here.
Goal 2 was to free motion quilt 6 blocks for my President’s fabric memory book. (You can read about that here.) I am happy to report that I completed 10 blocks!
I had intended to use the blocks as practice for all sorts of free motion quilting designs, but changed my mind. Instead, I want to keep it simple. I am echo quilting, as well as meandering and a bit of pebbling.
I have pieced together a few more leader/enders to make bow ties with. I am pinning them in groups of 10 so that it is easy to count how many I have.
I am linking up with Elm Street Quilts for One Monthly Goal (OMG). Head on over to see what everyone else has done with their July goals!

Bonnie Hunter introduced the term Leader/Ender many years ago. It is a method of continuous piecing and she describes it well in her blog post here.
Each July, Bonnie announces a new Leader/Ender challenge, so she will be making that announcement very soon.
However, there is a challenge that she announced wayyyy back in 2011…the Bow Tie Leader/Ender. This one has been on my ‘someday’ list since Bonnie announced it.
You know what? ‘Someday’ never comes! So I am making this one happen.
Except for the cheddar, I am cutting parts from scraps. The cheddar is yardage that I just had to have.
No stress, no deadline…just for fun.
I like it.
