WIP Wednesday 6.1.22

Here we are in June already.  Time for some summer fun.  I will try to work in some quilting and finishes along the way.

I finished quilting this patchwork quilt for a friend and returned it to her.  She gave me a polyester blanket to use as the batting for this one.  It worked out fine.

When I dropped it off she gave me another to quilt.  This time she gave me a mattress pad as the batting.

I am setting my OMG (one main goal) for June to complete my Iced Lollies crib quilt (designed by Latifah Saafir).  I linked up at Elm Street Quilts.

I need to get to work on my GREEN HST blocks.  I didn't finish all of them in May.  The RSC definitely motivates me to keep using up my scraps.  Dark blue and bright blue are the colors for June.  Time to get this green bin put away so that I can grab those fun blues.  Blues and greens are my most plentiful scraps.

Our son informed me that he and his friend have moved into the "friend zone".  He told me that they are not boyfriend and girlfriend yet, but really good friends.  Oh they are having a blast at baseball this year.

The garden was plowed on Memorial Day Weekend.  It's time to finally get planting.  The garden has been moved over a little bit.  Ugh...  Time to start working that soil again to get it conditioned.

I talked about moving my plants as well in this post in mid May.  I only have three more lily plants to move onto our property.  The rest of the green are mostly weeds.  Looks like I have a couple of hours in the 70's this morning.  Better get out there and get moving before it gets too hot.  There's a good chance of  rain today and tomorrow.  That would be perfect for plants that just got planted and/or moved!

I'm linking up at Quilt Fabrication for Midweek Makers 334.

A mattress pad for batting? Wow, you are a good friend to agree to that. I love the simple checkerboard design of the top. Owen is growing up!

Lillies are such wonderful plants. We have many around our tiny property and when they start blooming! Wow. We chose some beautiful colors and a bunch of the typical orange ones. Good luck with your next quilting project. I guess a mattress pad would work fairly well....

I’ll be interested to see how the mattress pad works out on that quilt. It sounds like you have lots planned for the summer. I like the concept of a friend zone. It’s nice to have had a friend like that for so long.

Good luck with the new soil. I am sure you use compost, but it is a lot of work. Hope you get everything planted. Wish I had a little farm patch. Nice quilting. Glad Owen is having a great time outdoors and with people.
