July: A Lovely Year of Finishes ~ Goal Setting Party



Shanna be M.I.A.

I am going to cry ..that's how much traveling on my plate this month....but really it's all summer.


As always, Melissa from Sew BitterSweet Designs and I super thrilled to host ALYoF as it gets me to post...and to see what other people are working on.

A Lovely Year of Finishes

I'm thinking about what I want to do for my own little July goal.
{Catch that...LITTLE}

I didn't get to touch my June goal.  Funny enough I did finish up a whole other quilt.  Whoop.
Even the binding is on that one!  Geeze!

But this month I'm gonna choose to finish the binding the awesome quilt that Orchid Owl Quilts long armed for me.
And the binding is ready. .is it the weekend yet? I'm so in awe of the quilting by longarmer @orchidowlquilts
This is a long overdue beauty. It's so near the finish it's amazing!
