There is less than one week to go in this month and my June UFO is making some very slow progress. I finished piecing the borders but forgot to take a picture of the finished quilt top. It has been too hot on many days to start the machine quilting, but some of the cooler nights this week have allowed me to sit under this quilt and get to work.
I chose some old spools of blue thread to quilt the dark plaid blocks, an orange thread to quilt the bright triangles, and a neutral to quilt the light blocks.
This is the free motion design I tried in the blocks, and I'm happy with how it is working out. Part of the trick seems to be eyeballing where I am heading to next, and not letting the plaid lines get me all confused!
It was going so well last night, I got into my "quilting zen" and half way down the line of orange blocks, I forgot my plan and changed the design! Do you see my fancy "Vanna tweezers" pointing to where the designs are different?!? That took a bit of time to unstitch!
I'm not sure if I will meet my goal of finishing the quilt by Saturday...it depends on how many times I am lulled into relaxing so much that I goof up!!
