July Lovely Year of Finishes Goal

It's time to set our goals for July! You can go over to Sew Bittersweet to get all the details of this year long finish-a-long. I have my 3x6 Bee blocks to get done and this is all I've done so far:

I'm in the Solids Hive and find myself wanting to do all sorts of strip or string piecing. I also love the look of the old scrappy modern looking improv quilts that were made in the late 1800's and in the 40's as well. This is my improv block building practice. It seems far too busy for me so wish me luck on getting it figured out! It's due an about a minute.

P.S. Sometimes I want to make a block like these paper pieced feathered stars but then I remember that I'm not that crazy. If I tried to make 6 of them in a row I might throw my machine out the window and ban paper forever from my sewing room.

  1. Those black and white blocks are quite striking! I also need to experiment with improv, it scares me a bit going off-piste!
