Goals Met for June's ALYOF!

My goodness! June has been about the busiest month yet this year, and I am so pleased that amidst all the drama and long hours with my Day Job, I was able to etch out a little time to finish up my goals for A Lovely Year of Finishes!  I know this looks like two finishes, but I'm only counting it as one. I basically quilted them at the same time to make good use of the backing fabric and save time.

I must admit, this was a fairly simple goal - I already had the table runners pieced and so I had to get them quilted and then bound. I've been enjoying them as they grace my coffee table and buffet . Very definitely a summery addition to the house.

And I am excited now because I have cleaned up my sewing studio and am now thinking about which project I shall finish for my July Goal. Hmmm....several possibilities come to mind. Doesn't it feel good to get a project wrapped up and put to good use?  Very satisfying.

  2. They are both Great! And the amount does not matter--you now have 2 very pretty projects that are completed and checked off your list! You go girl!

  3. Love these table runners - they look so summer-y!

  4. Yeah! Doing the happy dance for you! They turned out really nice! :)

  5. Congratulations on the finish. Your quilted leaves are so pretty - I am jealous! Thanks for sharing your tablerunners with Oh Scrap!

  6. Hurray! The quilting on the green one especially catches my eye - feathers and leaves are my favorites!

  7. I enjoy the link ups for the simple reason that they give me a little extra push to get things done, and I know other people are staying on task with me. Your runners are so summery and fresh looking! I'll bet you're glad you tackled those finishes so you can enjoy them.

I have let my blog side away in lieu of posting photos and updates over on Instagram. For me, it takes less time, and is a faster way to doc...
