July OMG is done

It's time to reveal the finished quilt of July OMG.  This is a gift for a dear friend who just had a new baby girl.  It will be delivered this coming Sunday.


Now go to the Elm Street Quilts to see all the July finish linkups.  There are a lot of cool finished projects.


I am planing to participate in the 2021 Make-A-Difference challenge from the MQG.  The theme is Trees, and the entry fee of $12 will be donated to Trees for the Future.  Here is my entry.


19" x 19"

When I was making it, I wasn't so sure I liked it.  I was trying to capture the morning sunrise with trees in the horizon to send a message of a new dawn, new trees, and new lives.  There is hope for the mother earth.  I almost stopped and canceled everything, but I didn't.  I'm glad I didn't and now I kind of like it.  It's whimsical and fun to look at.

I am still working on a project behind the scenes, which is a quilt for the Simply Moderne magazine.  I'm using Bella Solid from Moda's contributions and fun threads sent from the WonderFil company.   Here's the samples.

This quilt will be in Winter Issue.  I'll be able to talk about it then.

Thanks for stopping by and have a wonderful week.

Good news about the Intersection Blocks

Now I can talk about one of my behind the scene projects.  It's the block study for the MQG Journal, the online quarterly publication from the MQG for its members.  If you're not a member of the MQG and if you are interested in the modern quilt movement, I strongly recommend you join and become a member.  There are so many benefits for becoming a member; QuiltCon show participation,  wonderful webinars and talks, free patterns download, great opportunities to join in making a different in the community, just to name a few.

I answered the call for a block study submission and submitted this block over a year ago.  Last February I got an email from them saying that they wanted to feature my Intersection block for the third quarter of this year.  Due to copyright law protection, I can't show the whole picture of the blocks.  Here is a sneak peek from the article.


It's a lot of fun seeing the block that is so simple but has so many possibilities.  There are many great quilt layout suggestions in the article as well.  

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!

July OMG

 Hi Everyone,

It's time to set a goal for July.  I put a baby quilt top together last month and plan to quilt it this month.  Here's the picture of the quilt.


It's been very hot and humid that I'm not motivated to do much outside.  Everyday, I get up real early and check on my garden and for the rest of the day, I'm happy to be inside.  I'm still working on projects behind the scene.  Hopefully I can share them really soon.

You can check on other OMG projects here.

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.
