The year so far…

Oops!  It’s the end of June already, so half way through 2014!  Therefore, here are pictures of a few of the things I’ve done so far:

Next is the June “finish”.  I’ve been sending a finish every month to Aunt Marti at 52quilts because I need the motivation of her challenge to get some of my UFOs (Unfinished Objects) cleaned up!  As you can see, this is pieced but not quilted; Aunt Marti let’s YOU decide what qualifies as “finished”!  And after 2 years staring at these HSTs (half square triangles), I think putting them together into a top for a donation quilt qualifies as “finished”!  So if you need motivation to finish some of your UFOs, click the link above and head over to her blog 🙂

As always, 20% of the projects took 80% of the time!  So it’s good to have the little pouches and swap blocks to be done relatively quickly!  What have you been up to?

  1. Mary, your June Twelve in 2014 was part of a HST swap? I coordinated a similar swap with a bunch of quilters recently and I’m just now using my blocks for a workshop I’ll be taking with Bonnie Hunter in October. Our swap was 5″ neutrals/darks. I cut my 5″ blocks that were shades of blue into two 2.5″. Yeah! There will certainly be a project coming my way to use up the remaining HSTs. Enjoy your year so far projects. Sandi

    • Yes, a swap, intended to use up our scraps. Originally inspired by Edyta Sitar’s book Friendship Triangles, and that is where I got the center layout. Thanks for commenting!
