June and July Goals

1 Comment

Happy July to everyone!  Happy Canada Day, too!  Congradulations on 150 years!

I was all set to give myself an A+ for completing my modest June goals, but I think I’m confused on the steps to the Layer Cake Explosion quilt-along.  It’s what I get for doing two group quilts at the same time!  Oh, well.  Progress was made.  It was good.

June Goals:

(Well, June is half over, so I’ll keep it brief.)

  1. Layer Cake Explosion, Clue 2 (Twilter Quilt-Along) Yes!  Here.
  2. Layer Cake Explosion, Clue 3  Um, no.  I think I got confused about the clues, and thought I was caught up.  Oh, well.
  3. Pacific Stars Mystery Quilt (by Charlotte Scott on Carol’s Quilts blog), Clue 1  Yes!
  4. Pacific Stars, Clue 2  Yes!  Here.

Bonus:  Zebra Baby Quilt


I’ll be traveling some in July, gardening, preserving, reading, summering, so these goals are modest, too.

July Goals

  1. Make blocks for Kat’s July/August Covered in Love block drive.
  2. Continue with Layer Cake Explosion, whichever step I’m on.
  3. Continue with Pacific Stars.
  4. Experiment with some kind of floral, layered art quilt thingy.  (Vague enough?)


Truly hope all of you are enjoying your summer (or winter) and your sewing.

One thought on “June and July Goals

  1. Thank you for linking the Covered in Love project, I kind of fell off the wagon on that one. Excited to see what you come up with on the layer cake floral department 🙂 fussy cutting perhaps? Or stack and whack?
