July's Block

It's time for another block. I enjoyed making this month's block. It's pretty simple and straight forward. So first for the planned block made from purchased fabric.
 Next my scrappy version.
 Click here for printable instructions.
I hope you enjoy making this one.

A Finish and I Won!

Finally a finish! I didn't think I would ever finish this quilt. It just seemed to go on and on. Every time I sat down to work on it something seemed to come up and prevent me moving forward with it. I also wondered if it was actually going to work at all. At one point the corners were pretty wonky and didn't lie flat. As a wall quilt this was essential, but it finally came together.
 I did a ton of quilting on it. Here is a close up of one corner.
 The Henry Glass blog had a giveaway and to win you had to guess (or research) who designed the fabric in their header and I won! They sent me a bundle containing ten half yard cuts from Kim Diehl's Hearthside Seasons. 
 I'm working on designing something using these lovely fabrics so stay tuned. Thank you so much Henry Glass Fabrics!
