June Goals

NOTE: I've just realized that Blogger has stopped sending me blog comments to my email. I think I can reply to them directly from Blogger, but haven't tried that yet. I have read them all and thank you for taking the time to comment! 

June is going to be a busy month, but I feel pretty confident that I can meet my One Monthly Goal: finishing my Jamestown Landing quilt. 
My blocks are all together and the inner border is on. Luckily I had enough leftover matching strips from sewing the string blocks. They are slightly wider than the inner border measurement in the book, but I'm okay with that--I think it will work.
Okay, I admit I was too lazy to trim them down.  

 Now I need to make 16 of these printer paper sized string blocks for the outer borders. They will be split down the center.
I'm half way there! 

Bonnie suggests piecing left over strip pieces together to make them long enough for the border blocks. It's nice to not end up with too much waste and you know I love "making do".

  2. Ah, again blues. I wish I had kept my "Baskets of Life" pattern set as I think it would have been pretty done in blues.

  4. What a pretty quilt! I love blue and white, and your added off-white is a great addition.
