I've been working on my Round Robins for the Dallas Modern Quilt Guild, and we can't reveal them until after our July meeting, so it will be the end of the month before I can show you any of that!
I finished my brother's 30th Birthday Quilt about 3 1/2 hours before his party . . . and it was a 3 hour drive to see him. Just call me Nick; Nick of Time!!! Here we are with it.
I got the pattern from Robert Kaufman called Ravel. I used Kona solids to make it more "manly", and really fell in love with using solid colors. Everything looks much more crisp and clean!
I also made some Mason Jar Pin Cushions I saw on Pinterest for me, my bestie, and my grandmother. They are so stinking cute!
Finally, Miss A and I have been taking swimming lessons the past 2 weeks, and we LOVED our teachers, Lori and Mason. So I made them Coffee Cup Cozies (pattern by Crafty Staci) and gave them a Starbucks gift card.
I have 2 goals for July. First, it is my Christmas in July month, and I plan on getting as many Christmas crafts done as possible. Mostly I want to finish our stockings, but I also plan on working on a tree skirt, coasters, and Christmas quilts. Second, the end of July begins the OLYMPICS! I LOVE THEM!!!! It is my first year home to watch anything and everything, so I plan on having several quilts quilted and half bound so I can veg in front of the TV and finish binding them.
So there's my plan, but we all know what happens with the best laid plans of mice and men!
PS: USA, USA, USA!!!
