My One Monthly Goal for June

June looks like it will be a really busy month.  We have two family birthdays to celebrate, other obligations, and I have blocks for two quilt-alongs to sew/stitch (Sweet Land of Liberty and Linda Brannock's Flowers), both of which will require hand applique.  But I want to finish cutting and sewing blocks for two different quilts:  Payne's Everyday Patchwork Sampler Quilt and the Civil War quilt, Blue and Gray.

For Everyday Patchwork my goal is to make five more 6" blocks.   Cheri gave patterns for 25 blocks for this sampler but since I want 30 I'm scouting around for five more 6" blocks that would be in keeping with Cheri's style.


My goal for the Blue and Gray quilt is to make 11 more large 9-patch blocks and 7 more small cross blocks for cornerstones in the sashing.



















Now if I can just focus and do it, plus the other cutting and stitching for the sew-alongs, I should be fine!

I'm linking this post to One Monthly Goal - June Goal Link-up at Elm Street Quilts.  Thanks for hosting, Patty.

  2. Seems to e that I have the Blue and Gray pattern. You planning to work on yours reminded me of that. I don't have time for it right now.

    1. I think this is the first time I've actively had more than two quilts going at the same time. When I finish these blocks I'll put them away until I collect more grey fabrics for the sashing. And, like you, Karen, until I have time to really devote to it.

  3. The Blue and Gray is on my list, too. I think I even have the book tucked away somewhere. Though maybe I should finish one of these projects first...
    Naw. Onwards!

    1. Gayle, your quilts are so bright and vibrant that I have a hard time imagining you making Blue and Gray -- it's so dark and somber. But then, maybe you will use the pattern but much brighter fabrics?

  4. Best of luck. Two great projects to push along a bit. I hope you found blocks that you felt suited your quilt. I look forward to seeing them!
