Has your June been as incredibly busy as mine has been? It seems like it was just June 1st, and here it is, the end of the month with little in the way of scrap sewing to show for it... But some months are just like that, aren't they?
I did do a little bit of scrap sewing, though - I made some more of these cute lozenges using 2.5" x 4.5" rectangles and 1.5" squares for the corners.
I also took my green string blocks and paired them up with some string blocks built around 3.5" I-spy blocks. I'm liking the way this is shaping up...
And today I took a few minutes of indulgent sewing time and made five more blocks for this top - because a very wise reader told me last month that even though five blocks doesn't sound like much, it's five more than I had yesterday!
I now have 36 blocks total, and maybe with a few more and some creative sashing, I can finish off a top with these. I'll play around with some graph paper and see what I can come up with!
I think I will take July off from scrap sewing - because it's going to be a fun and busy month! If you haven't heard already, I will be hosting a blog hop called the Twelve Days of Christmas in July!
Twenty-five quilt bloggers will be sharing some really cool ideas and projects to help you jump start your Christmas crafting. You can see them listed in the right sidebar with links to their blogs if you want to start following them now.
Additionally, there will be a Christmas quilt-along on my blog that will show you how to have your own Christmas quilt this year - all in twelve days! I'll be posting a pic of the quilt design and fabric requirements in the next few days so that you can get your supplies ready if you want to participate - watch for it! It's going to be a lot of fun, so I hope to see you there!
So now it's your turn to share - have you had a more productive month than I did? Let us see what you've been working on to reduce or control your scrap stash - I'll need some serious inspiration to get back on track in August! If you're going to set some goals for July, share those too - I'll cheer you on even as I watch my scraps slowly multiply throughout the month!
