Owl's Well That Ends Well -- July OMG Complete!

 I'm linking up at Elm Street Quilts for the July OMG Finishing Party here.



I made a pieced back of odds and ends light and dark blues.  I quilted it using my Circle Lord giant clam shells template board.  I like the texture it adds.  This quilt finishes at 54" square.



I made owls each month during the RSC (Rainbow Scrap Challenge).  I changed the size of the block from the original pattern by Judy Gauthier in her book, Quilts for Scrap Lovers.  My re-sizing made it more Accuquilt die cutter friendly.  I also changed the position of the wings of the owls to give them a little personality.  I do not have a designated recipient for this quilt.  It will go into the "gift" pile.

RSC21 Navy Blue

Today I loaded my Scrap Crystals quilt onto the longarm frame. It is my navy blue project that I hope to finish in August.

I don’t have a specific home for it. I’m not in a big hurry to get it done. I am quilting it using my Circle Lord giant template board called Clam Shells. I picked this board because I recently quilted two other quilts with it and I really liked the texture. Okay… I may also be a little lazy and didn’t want to set up a different board too.

Patchwork Quilt on the Frame

 Today I have my friend's patchwork quilt on the longarm frame.  I hope to finish it later today.


I am quilting it with the clamshell design from my Circle Lord giant template board.  This particular friend loves this design.  It was an easy decision for me because I already had the board set up from when I quilted Owl's Well That Ends Well.

Scrappy Saturday RSC21

I'm starting to sew a little more than what I have been doing.  This week I made the sashing strips for the GO! ABC quilt.  (This is a free pattern on the Accuquilt site.  I also finished the purple letters for last month.

WIP Wednesday 7.7.21

Life has been busy for another week.  I did get to work on a few quilty things.  I made the two purple blocks for my GO! ABC quilt.  This is a free pattern available on the Accuquilt site.


The beginning of the week my garden looked like this with all these weeds between the plants.


Today I tilled between the tomatoes and other plants.  Whew... the weeds are under control again!


I finished the quilting and trimmed the Owl's Well That Ends Well quilt.  I don't have a specific person in mind for this quilt.  When it is finished it will go on the gift pile.  A pink binding would look great on it, but I think it would make it too girly.  I'd like to keep this quilt gender neutral.  I will probably go with a light orange.  I didn't find enough bright green for a binding.  I don't have enough of the dot fabric on the border for a binding either.  And yes, I do have a 6' trampoline in the quilt room.


I quilted it with the Circle Lord Clam Shells giant template board.  


Someone is getting excited about going camping and taking the RV for a spin.  He's been helping his dad every night this week to "work" on it.  I'm still wondering what sewing project I will pack this year.


I now stand at 54 projects on my WIP list.
