New FO's - Where did June go.....?

Hello - Here are my contributions to the NewFO Challenge:

June was going along fine and then all the sudden - Poof   It's July.  I am really really good at NewFO's but have never shared about them.  I really enjoy Barbara's many posts about NewFO's and Finishes (which I'm trying to do) and goal setting so I think I'll follow along on some of these and see if I can get a little more finished.  After all when someones watching it makes you a little more accountable right.  :) 

So What all did I do..  My June Doll Quilt for my Doll Quilt swap:

With a matching Pincushion

Then I am also part of a group that swaps Pincushions each month I have two swap partners for that so here are the two pincushions that I made for them.
This a pattern that I got from Kaaren Johnson of "The Painted Quilt" Blog. They have coordinating fabric on the back.  I also made a 3rd one in lime green that I backed with a muted lime green wool.

I also started this candle mat - The fish actually needed to be hand dyed to make the dual color in them so that was kinda fun.  I haven't started the stitching on this yet but - someday soon.

Next - this is a quilt I started and finished and now am going to work on some more.  I started it to be part of a challenge called the "Modern Mini Quilt Challenge" that is hosted by Ellison Lane.  But after I got all done I just looked off.  Well that's because it is silly.  So I will be adjusting some the corners on the appliqued quilts and then readjusting some of my quilting.  (No I didn't put it in the contest)

And I also started an embroidery BOM from Jenny at Elefantz - she is an Australian designer and I really like her stuff. It is called Daisy Days.
I am not quite done with Block 1 but I better hurry up because block two has already been published. I have however got it traced and ready to do. 

Well I guess that's enough for one month.  I also worked on some UFO's and a couple of other little projects that are WIP's but I'll save that for another post.  Have a blessed day.


  1. That's an impressive list of NewFo's! I must take a look at Jenny's "Daisy Days", your block looks very pretty. Your pincushions are adorable. Love how the churn dash block looks made up as a pincushion!

  2. I love making little doll quilts to hang on my wall behind my computer. I enjoy looking at them while bloggin and answering emails. Your doll quilt is just adorable. I like your embroidery block as well.

  3. WHat a nice variety of projects! Very nice.

  4. What a great group of projects. I love your traditional blocks.
