June blocks & a Finish

I finished the June blocks pretty quickly. I cut everything out before vacation, and even got the Irish Chain block completed. All I needed to do today was put the 2 stars together. I can’t wait to start putting the top together, this is going to look so cool when it’s done!

I was also able to quilt and bind the 2009 Quilt Show BOM. However, since I never finished it (only completed month 1) I decided to make it into a table topper. Then I changed my mind and put a sleeve on it so I can hang it in my half bath that has a red, white and blue theme. It was something easy to work on during the flight to Florida. Another finish for the year!!!

Well I’m quite proud of myself!  I started and finished the January block of The Quilt Show 2009 BOM – Stars for a New Day.  I had a few issues, and somehow I managed to lose 1/4″ on each side, but I’ll deal with it next month when it gets set on-point.  Now I’m off to start a patriotic table runner, I found some 4″ charm squares when I was looking for fabric for the BOM – it shouldn’t take long to put together.
