Although I wasn't able to comment on all, I did visit everyone's links at the beginning of the month and there are some wonderful projects in the works. 

And how did I do? My goal for June was to put together the top on my long unfinished Women's Voices quilt. I accomplished that and then went above and beyond to finally finish this thing! I like it better now that it is complete, but it's still not really my style, so it won't remain in my collection much longer. 

I no longer have this pattern. It is still commercially available from the designer. Please do not ask me for the pattern; please go honor the creator and purchase a legal copy.

At the beginning of the month I mentioned that I'd need to buy backing fabric. I wanted a muslin wide back for this. Armed with a 60% off coupon, I headed into Jo-Ann Fabrics. None of the fabrics I was considering were on sale online when I checked ahead of time, but they all were marked down in-store. So I stood in the store and ordered online with the pick up in store option so that I could use the coupon. 🫤 One glitch is that the fabric I got wasn't the one I thought I was getting. I was hoping for a more traditional muslin-look and received a silky-feeling solid. But it was acceptable and was a bargain at $5/yard.

I used Warm Plush batting for this quilt. While the package was marked 90 x 108, the piece of batting was actually closer to 100 x 100, which suited my 91 x 91 quilt just fine. This particular package of batting had been hanging out in my closet since I'd ordered it as an experiment on sizing a while back. I had a client provide me with two packages of the 90 x 108, the biggest size this particular batting comes in. One was quite a good bit bigger, but she'd cut a chunk out of the corner, so it was not big enough for her project. The second package was closer in size to the one I'd purchased, more like 100 x 100. So beware--I've had bad luck with the larger Warm packages not being sized as marked on multiple occasions. The Plush batting is quite nice though and yielded really nice stitch quality.

Now it's your turn to share your finish. Please add a link to this OMG post so that others can follow where you are linking.  Just paste this into your post:

  1. I never got around to commenting on your book quilt finish but I sure love that quilt! It turned out so great!! I've slacked so badly at listing a monthly goal (at least I've still been getting some things done--just doubly-slacking on the blogging part!)

  2. Great job on going above and beyond on getting your quilt done. I'm sure it feels good to have it off of your UFO pile. Enjoy using it or gifting it.

    1. Thank you! It did feel like a huge weight was lifted.
