June: A Lovely Year of Finishes ~ Finishes Party

Wow June is nearing an end.  And it's summer!  :)
Melissa from Sew BitterSweet Designs and I have been loving all of your encouragement to get things done.  And we're getting things done but we also are seeing all your projects coming together.

My May  June #ALYoF project is closer to be done but it's not yet {it's not the end of the month YET}.

I've been distracted by a few other things that are awesome.

#rolypolypinafore Sundays rock
Roly Poly Pinafore made from the pattern from Imagine Gnats.
Soooo fantastic

I think I'm going to cry I love these so much!
Steam Punk blocks that are so outside my comfort zone that I love SO much.

@canoercreations perfect pattern. Made with my birthday gift from @solarthreads. I'm making this for a wonderful lady who's moving from town. 2 hours and it's cut, sewn, and spray basted. Now to ponder what quilting to make this perfect
Oh and this awesome mini {that's now done}
It's the March pattern the Fresh Mini Quilt Club from Canoe Ridge

Yeah I am cutting out a pj pant bottom for my fantastic fella- I'll get to my June goal :|

  8. 107° here, and I just blogged about my June finish. To my dismay I missed the deadline, which was yesterday. Oh well, I finished my goal in time, got the finished quilt of valor awarded to a vet, the blog entry is wonderful, and I got my google switched to bloglovin'. Congratulations to all of you finishers who beat the deadline. Happy July!
