When the Helper isn't busy swimming, playing at water parks, magnet fishing, bowling, or baseball, he likes to help me sort fabric. He's the best!

I quilted a few more rows of my Scrap Crystals quilt this week. This is a Bonnie Hunter pattern. I am quilting it using my Circle Lord giant template board called Clam Shells.
I am really liking the chevron backing that I put on it. It's very busy, but it's a one-fabric back this time.

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.

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.

Yesterday I did a little sewing and got caught up on my ABC quilt. I needed to make the two purple letters for this quilt. I missed making them during purple month for the RSC21. It feels good to get caught up on something. Next to make all the black sashings for the RSC21 this month.

I made progress on my Owl's Well That Ends Well quilt. I found a batting for it and put it on the frame. I have started the quilting.

I am setting the bar low again this month. I did not finish this quilt last month...or the month before that. My OMG for July is to finish the quilt, Owl's Well That Ends Well. This is also one of my RSC projects that I worked on last when it was a blue month--hence the blue border. I made these owls during different months of the RSC. I'm linking up to the RSC21 here at Angela's blog, SoScrappy.
The top is done. A pieced back in blue scraps has been made. The back of the quilt is even loaded onto my longer frame. I need to find a piece of batting the right size for it. It needs to be quilted, trimmed, and bound. I re-sized the blocks and made them smaller to make the pattern more compatible with my Accuquilt dies. The original pattern is by Judy Gauthier in her book, Quilts for Scrap Lovers. I also changed positions of some of the wings to mix it up.
