New Projects for June

I have been reading the blog posts that you have been sharing with me on
my Big Day Give Away post. It has been so fun to read them!

There is still time to enter... the giveaway winner will be picked tomorrow!
I did think of a couple of posts that I found funny and thought 
they were worth sharing again. I actually think I shared one of them before...
but here they are.

There are a couple of new projects on my list this month:
One is the Beck-Ad the Halls Quilt.
It's the Fat Quarter Shops Anniversary!
So they came up with a great idea...
10 years. 10 blocks. 10 fabrics

The patterns are free... and better yet, they are cute.
I have mine on it's way!
So hopefully my kit will arrive by tomorrow so that I can start playing
right away. I have been seeing the 3 Wise Gingerbread Men blocks
(the first month project) on Pinterest and there is a Flikr group too.  
I just had to have some Gingerbread men of my own!
You can use your own stash...
but a kit is kind of handy, so I opted
for that. 

The other project on my list for this month is...
Coastal Lily.
Have you seen Thelma's?
I have been wanting to make this one forever... so it seemed to be the perfect
time. I am still waiting for my pattern but I started on the flying geese...

The pattern calls for 180. I have 166 made so far!
Woo hoo!

10 friends stopped by to chat:

I bought the Deck-Ade kit, too. It was too cute to pass up. Besides those stinkin' cute g-men really spoke to me. LOL

I just finished reading Have You Had Your Quilters Vaccine Yet--I feel so bad for laughing, but the yoga photo to illustrate what happened was what made it so hilarious! Luckily I've managed to avoid injecting my posterior, but have had several needles or oins end up in my feet.

I saw the pattern and wish I have time to play. I'll have to see. It's such a pretty quilt.

Jana Machado said...

What a coincidence! I posted my gingerbread blocks today and some info about the Fat Quarter Shop Quilt Along! I'll be waiting to see your blocks too!

Thelma said...

I can't believe you've already pieced 166 geese, you've probably pieced the remaining 14 by now! They look great, It's wonderful to have someone sewing along with me, everyone needs a Coastal Lily quilt on their Lifetime List!

I made my gingerbread men the other day and am itching to get the next pattern in my hot little hands! I'm making mine in Dear Mr Claus

Jeanna said...

I am ordering my kit from the FQS today! Even though I should be finishing UFOs and a graduation quilt, I just couldn't pass up the chance to help the FQS celebrate their could I?

I follow Thelma also and can't wait to see both your Coastal Lily quilts.

You are well on your way to making that quilt with only a few more flying geese to go. I love the fat quarter shop!

Michelle said...

You're making great progress! Love the fabrics.
