June One Monthly Goal

Since this has been hanging around on my design wall for a few weeks, I guess it's about time to get it quilted. Once I got the borders on, I immediately made the binding (cheddar, of course!) and pieced a back from stash pieces. 
It's ready to be quilted! 

After adding those wavy sashings, the top was a little dizzying so I am thinking of naming it Covid Chaos--lol! 
This quilt will be my One Monthly Goal for June.

A little update on one of my applique projects:
These are the Afternoon Delight blocks completed in May. There won't be new applique blocks to work on this month, as those patterns were released in March at the start of isolation. Any progress on this project will have to be the pieced alternate blocks which I have neglected completely.

  1. beautiful quilt - I slowly started Afternoon Delight but haven't made progress on it in recent weeks - I have not started the applique - just doing it when I feel like it not on anyone else's schedule

  2. I so enjoy seeing the projects you are working on. The quilt is so beautiful. Hugs

  3. That sashing has so much movement and texture I thought it was already quilted. I adore that sashing! Your Afternoon Delight blocks are gorgeous. That is one of my favorite patterns of Sue's. So sweet.

  4. I love this flying geese block. When am I going to get around to making one?! HA! I love the colors and fabrics in yours.

  5. Hi Karen, caught up on your posts now. Always a treat to see what you are stitching and how you are quilting it too. I also get tips on how to put certain fabrics together. I too find dogs are hopeless at modelling...well Murphy certainly is.

  6. I love love your applique well as the first quilt.

  7. That is the perfect name for your quilt! The sashing was such a wild idea that is absolutely perfect. Have fun quilting.

  8. That sashing is brilliant. I love it! Well, the whole quilt, really.

  9. Your quilt is beautiful woth this combo of colors !!
    Congratulations Karen :)

  10. As always, good luck with your quilting plans.
    The applique blocks are lovely. What a shame the lock down got in the way.

  11. I think your top is fantastic. The sashing was a great choice. And your applique blocks are looking so good too. I love your background fabrics- especially the horses!

  12. Love the name for your June project! The sashing does give the quilt a lot of movement.
    Great job on those applique blocks!

  13. I probably would have been like you in ignoring the pieced blocks for the Afternoon Delights. Is there no one working to post the next batch of blocks?

  14. Covid Chaos--perfect!! :) I do love it, even if you think it is Chaos.
    Your Afternoon Delight blocks look so pretty--they have a softness to them, even with an occasional intense color.

  15. Love your Crossings quilt. I have not even been piecing, but have (yesterday) started cleaning out all that was inhabiting the space where I work on my quilts. I had not been feeling up to snuff for some time and am amazed at what I got done. Hopefully today I can get more of the sorting and cleaning done and be able to get back to my hobby!

  16. Happy quilting. Thanks for linking up with Elm Street Quilts One Monthly Goal and good luck on your project.
