The month flew by and even though I had a few finishes, I don't feel like I've accomplished much. Maybe because the last couple of quilts were very simple patterns? Who knows. Truth be told, I've been in some kind of mood lately and I really hope it passes soon because I don't like feeling this way.
I finished the commission for 2 baby quilts. A friend/coworker ordered a quilt for each of her grandsons who will both be turning a year old in August. She got the quilts on Tuesday and is very pleased and excited to present them in August.
UFO Challenge 2016, and now it's finished!
One last thing I want to share before the party is a pattern test I'm working on. It's a pattern called Scrappy Litter Blox by Lillyella. The pattern will be included in the June Stash Builder Box. I usually like to get all the cutting out of the way first, but not this time. I had to put at least one block together to show you.
So what have you been stitchin' on? I'd love to see it!

I love your baby quilts and bed runner! Fabulous! Wow! That is hot. Just in time for me to visit :). I am keeping my fingers crossed that we can meet this time!ReplyDelete
Love those baby quilts and how you put their names on them. Way cool! Your bed runner is fantastic too. Working with those thin strips would certainly have been an exercise in patience for me, and the Lord gives me too many of those lessons already! Your tester block is adorable! How fun to be making those. We just left Havasu last week when the cooler weather was still blowing our minds and now we're in Oregon. I'd be thankful for the cooler weather, but they're headed for 99 degrees this weekend. With all that humidity. I think I'd rather be in the air conditioned Havasu house with almost zero humidity this weekend! Stay cool and hydrated! Thanks for the link up!ReplyDelete
Looks like you've had some great finishes. Your test block looks fabulous! I see Phoenix is an oven, I'm dreading coming there for my dr appts...ReplyDelete
The summer we moved our summer got to 124 degrees in Havasu!! After 30 years growing up there, my husband and I both laugh that after nine years 85 degrees is HOT to us now!! (We know better) Hang in there. Atleast it's a great time to sew as NO ONE wants to be outside during those hot afternoons. (Crazy coincidence that it sounds like Christine is from Havasu and visiting in Oregon...where I now live!)ReplyDelete
Nice to see you back, Zenia Rene! I've missed your Friday linkups! Unfortunately I don't have anything fabric-y to link up this week, but didn't want to pass up the chance to say hi - stay cool!!ReplyDelete
Well, now I don't feel so bad, I started a Block of the month this year thinking I would blog a bit more regular well I do manage one or two a month, now I decided to do a winter mystery from my blog so that will get me back in the habit of once a week. Anyway I love reading what you have to say, so keep up at least once a month. Cheers WendyReplyDelete
Love your encouraging words at the end as always. Good threads indeedReplyDelete
I like this bed runner. after I finish my three last quilts, I am done making huge stuff. I am going to make smaller stuff. :-P
Happy Sunday dear Zenia
