June finishes

I finally have a finish to show you!  I still need to clip the rag quilt and wash it, but I am calling this a finish!  I'll do the clipping in the car the next time we go out of town.  It's going to take a while!  I used six inch blocks, 13 across and 17 down.  This is going to be a Christmas present for my 17 year old nephew.  I'm not really sure how I ended up with a almost a whole row of light blocks on the right side.
When I sorted my blocks, I made sure that the colors were not next to each other, then when I chain stitched my blocks they got all messed up, but that's okay, boys don't care.

My husband even said that he liked the quilt and would not mind one!

On the label I put the first part of Psalm 143:10 - "Teach me to do thy will; for thou art God" .  I pray that my nephew takes this verse and pays attention to it.

Of course the second a quilt is laid down Tiger has to lay on it!  You can see his tail at the bottom of the other pictures, he was just waiting!  LOL

I also finished all of my barn blocks.    http://missyscakesandaprons.blogspot.com/2013/06/barn-update.html

I worked on my sailboat quilt.  http://missyscakesandaprons.blogspot.com/2013/06/pinwheels.html

This means that I finished all of my June goals!  Yeah!

Have a great day!

A Lovely Year of Finishes

I have been setting aside old jeans for a few years to make one of these. LOVE IT! And I'm sure your nephew will, too.

Missy, I do the same thing...lay out my squares, but they never end up where I think they will. Your nephew is going to love the quilt. It looks like it will be nice and warm...
