July goal and a BIG thing


Once upon a time I was inspired by this quilt and I started my own version. I lost interest and it was in my drawer for over a year or so. I didn't even remember how many blocks there were waiting for my attention. I only took this picture to include it in my FAL Q1 list.


Well there were 8 and last night I used up all the light blue and I quite like it. To keep me motivated I'm making this my goal for July. That's right. I'm linking up with ALYoF and so can you.


And what's the BIG thing you ask? Wooo hooo, I won 1st place in Jaybird Quilts Sew Along! Yes, my Mini Disco quilt top made it! There were 32 entries in total and I'm so flattered being picked by Julie Herman herself. Thank you!

  1. I REALLY like that crazy colourful animals (quilt top?) project - it's adorable! It's so funny you should do something in that design - I looked at the quilt that inspired you and had to laugh, as I recently pinned a couple of quilts in the same design, because I thought they were gorgeous! That's a great goal for July :)

    CONGRATS on winning first place in the Quilt Along - that's fantastic - there were some awesome projects posted to that!

  17. Verko, kdyby byl double prispevek, tak se omlouvam, protoze jsem na notebooku a vsimla jsem si, ze vzdy napisu prispevek a pak se mi ztrati. Nejdrive gratuluji. Moc nestiham v posledni dobe, ale nakukuji aspon na fotky a komentovat nestiham. Tak aspon dnes. Domecky se mi libi a ta deka se stiny se rysuje taky pekne. Na to same mam doma taky latky a taky se mi do toho uz nechce. Krasne leto.

  20. Congratulation on your disco quilt.

    I love the effect of your animal picture quilt. When I first saw the top photo, I seriously thought those pictures were hanging in front of the light blue material and the dark blue was their shadow :)
