Can you believe I did not finish one single quilt in the month of June? However, I did make progress on many projects, which enabled me to finish 3 quilts in July.
The first finish is a wallhanging called "Always Home" (pattern by Country Quilts and I bought my copy at Heart 'n Home). All the fabrics in this quilt are plaid homespuns which makes it a soft quilt. It was very relaxing to sew the 124" of plaid binding around this finished quilt. I wish I would've had enough fabric to cut a bias binding, which my favourite in plaids, but I didn't so it's a regular bifold binding.
The second July finish is my Scrap Squad quilt made with Kansas Troubles fabrics, and the binding used up most of the leftover scraps. This photo shows the backing of the quilt. The perimeter of this quilt is 268".
The third finish is a "Tiny Tumble" that was started and finished within the same month! That's about as rare as a unicorn - you've heard of them, but not seen one before! Here it is! It adds a whole 33" to my binding total for the month.
At the end of July, let's tally the binding stitched so far this year:
January - 586"
February - 326"
March - 564"
April - 0"
May - 385"
June - 0"
July - 425"
Total = 2,286"
I'll link up to the Binding Blitz party over at Julie's at the end of the month.
I intend to just celebrate that binding total, and not even notice that my UFO of the month did not become one of the quilts that were finished this month. Sheesh. I wanted it to be, but it just didn't happen.
