My June UFO Challenge Projects

Judy drew the number for June back on the 1st but I’m just getting around to posting what I’m working on.

Before I say what my projects are for this month, I’ll say that I’m still working on some past months and am trying to get caught up but that may take a while.  Those “late” UFO’s are:

“Toast to Texas”—I started quilting it and hated the panto I was using so now I’m “skinning” the quilting and the quilting will be started over.

“Burma Shave”—I decided I didn’t like the layout so I took it apart and haven’t totally decided whether or not I want a lap size quilt or full size.

“All Stacked Up”—I’ve got to find the baggie with the fabrics so I can put borders on.

“I Wanna Be Loved Bayou”—swap blocks from a retreat I hosted here several years ago.  I still haven’t decided on a layout.

“Feedsack Delight”—made from vintage feedsack squares and Southern Belle muslin.  This may be the next one on the frame.

For June, Judy drew #8 which on my list are:

“Chart Your Course”—the mystery I presented last year.  I’m working on my blocks for that and am excited to see it coming together.  So far, I have all the “Arkansas Snowflake” and “Turnstile” blocks made.  The frame of the center medallion is ready.  I have the sashings and stripping bars cut out.

“Wild Card”—-which just means that I can choose any quilt top I want to from my stack.  I’m not sure yet what that will be.  I may swap “Wild Card” for a different quilt top from another month.

Dealing with getting ready for surgery and then having surgery really put a crimp in my style but I’m back on the road to being myself.  Yea!  I would love to think I could get all caught up before July but I’ve got a couple other things I have to get done.

The first order of business is that I have to finish the designs to submit to BerryPatch Preservation for Quilting & Visual Arts for their fall expo.  They host a featured design at each expo and people can buy tickets for the “FQ Stroll” which takes them to different shops in Ponchatoula to pick up the FQ’s to make the design and of course they get the pattern also.  I’ve done the pattern for them every expo except for the last one because I needed a break.

Here are pictures of the other designs I have done for them:

"Strawberry Stroll"---the 1st design.

"Strolling for Dessert"---the 2nd design.

"Berry Elegance"---the 3rd design.

My favorites are “Strawberry Stroll” and “Berry Elegance”.

Today, I’m going to tweak those designs for this years submission and work on the “card trick” and “mexican star” blocks for”Chart Your Course”.  Sounds like a busy day!  Have a great weekend everyone!

    Sheryl, these are gorgeous! Do you ever sell your quilts? I would love one! I have a very good friend from high school who was in a bad carwreck and lost her memory. She started quilting and has become very famous for it. Her name is Ruth Vinson, but I can’t remember her married name right now! She lived in Texas for a long time bit they moved back to Meridian, MS about 22 years ago, about the time married Ricky!

    Scrumptious quilts! Hmmm… if you’re up to it, I think you should add another one… Strawberries and Cream. Yum! 🙂

      Actually, Angie…I thought about that. I’m having trouble with the creative process on this one and I need to get it done asap!

    It’s like seeing old friends. 🙂 You may remember Strawberry Stroll I donated to the Komen Fund raiser but Strolling for Dessert still hangs in my kitchen and Berry Elegance in my bedroom. I think Berry Elegance may be my favorite – simple elegant design in the center, great borders and the day I quilted it must have had the quilting gods looking out because even the quilting turned out really great. I’ll be interested to see what you come up with next!
