Brutal Honesty {July 2018}

The year is officially halfway over! I have managed to make a little dent in my list from January -- I've finished 6 of the things that were on that list (in addition to finishing an Island Batik Ambassador project every month!) but I've added four things to the list.

My goals for June were to finish my Traveling Quilt Bee which unfortunately didn't happen and to do some fabric shopping to finish some projects, which I did a little bit of. I still need some backings, but I would rather check things out at my local quilt shops before I order online.

Quilting in Progress:
1. Traveling Quilt Bee (2016) -- I haven't managed to get anything done on this. :(

Completed tops:
2. Magnolia Mystery QAL -- No progress
3. Double Delight -- The top is together and now I need to decide if I should add a border or not.

4. Blocked Rainbow Quilt --  The top is done and now I need to decide on how to back and quilt it!

Tops partially finished:
5. Bonnie and Camille C2C Bee Quilt -- No progress
6. Romantic Garden Quilt -- No progress
7. Monthly Wall Hangings -- No progress

Just blocks and units:
8. Pineapple Stash Bee Blocks -- No progress
9. Sew Kitschy Blocks -- No progress
10. Cubicle Quilts -- No progress
11. Happy Houses blocks -- No progress
12. Birthstone blocks -- No progress
13. Donuts quilt -- No Progress

Quilt alongs and long term projects:
14. Monthly Island Batik Ambassador projects -- My June project was my 30 Pearls wall hanging and for July our theme is secondary designs and I'll be working on a baby quilt for a girl!

15. Breezy Blooms C2C Bee -- I sent off Karen's quilt in June, received Stephanie's quilt to work on for July, and also got my own quilt back (early!). I'll be working on Stephanie's quilt soon!

New Projects:
16. Drift Away Scrap Quilt: I'm almost halfway done with the top! 

17. Overnight Delivery quilt for MBS: This quilt is almost finished and will be revealed soon! I say this about most of my MBS patterns when they come out, but this is one of my favorites! This is the second Sweetwater Christmas line I've gotten to work with (the other being Christmas Twirls which uses The Cookie Exchange line)!

My goal for this month is to finish up my additions to Stephanie's quilt for the C2C bee and then to start working on both my April Showers C2C quilt from last year and my Breezy Blooms C2C quilt from this year. 

I also picked the winners for the Island Batik scrap giveaway! Congrats to the winners.

Happy Monday! 


  1. I think you've had a great 2018 so far and I am definitely looking forward to seeing more C2C quilts and how they come together!

  2. The quilts you have going are quite impressive! I'm looking forward to your MBS quilt!
    (Am I coming up as a no-reply?? I've been trying to get it fixed..)

  3. I'm excited to see what you do with the C2C quilts! Also, I envy your ability to maintain that many WIPs - I max out at 4-5. =]

  4. You always have such fun projects in the works. Double Delight turned out beautifully! The setting triangles highlight the center of the quilt so nicely. Hope July is a very productive month.

  5. Your projects are all so wonderful! I especially like the Blocked Rainbow Quilt.
    What I don't like is that you have written out for all to see that the year is half over!!! Where in the world has the time gone?
