I've been threatening this for a long time now, and I'm just going to DO IT!
July will be spent finishing up a couple of quilt tops that are, frankly, laid out on the floor in various parts of the Quilting Condo and needing to be assembled. July will also be spent binding 4-6 quilts.
August -- it's MY month! I'm going to work on anything I want with NO guilt whatsoever! And what I decided to do is have a BOM party for the whole month! I've got a couple in various stages, some just needing borders, and a whole slew of them that aren't even started yet. This going to be fun!
There are a couple of new ones that I'm totally excited about -- JudyL's Patchwork Party Star BOM that starts in August, and Kimberly's Sweet Treasures BOM that kicks off in September. I want to be ready to sit down and piece the moment they're here or posted!
The others that I want to work on are the appliqued pumpkin blocks, Merry Christmas for All, Blossom Time, Butterfly Kisses, Shangri-La Garden, and maybe Home for the Holidays. I figure if I can at least get the applique blocks prepped and the pieced blocks made, then I should be able to finish them all up by the end of the year. For sure the ones that I already have all the blocks and haven't started yet!
I might even prep more Dutch Treat blocks; this has been going on four years now and I'm over halfway done with those 196 blocks! The last time I worked on them was on my last trip to Louisiana, two years ago. I may take more to work on this September when I go HOME! Hooray!
If anyone would like to join the BOM party in August, feel free! I'm going to be having a ton of fun all month long. Some time during the month, I'll be having birthday cake and champagne! I'm fully enscounced in middle age and thoroughly enjoying it. That's as good a reason as any to celebrate another birthday! LOL
