Assembled

As I mentioned, Stephanie pulled strings out of the hat for our July Challenge so I’ve been working on these HeartStrings blocks and the top is now done.

Tomorrow I’ll get back to quilting – I want to get an additional 6+ tops quilted before the end of July but I’ll also be working on some more string blocks this month.

Assembled

The Ombre squares top is assembled. This was a kit from BluPrint ( two Jelly Rolls and the pattern). The pressing instructions were incomplete causing me to have to do a lot of re-pressing to ensure my seams would nestle together so I’m glad to have it finally done.

Our monthly challenge for June is Jelly Rolls so I completed this one a little early. I have plans for one more Jelly Roll top but the priority for June and July will be quilting – Stephanie from my HeartStrings group and I have decided we both need a quilting marathon and I hope to get at least 12 quilted. I have some travel planned for both months too but it should be doable.
