I must admit that with four months of being locked down at home due the this Covid virus I am bored. Coming up with afternoon quilt projects is no longer as much fun as it was in the beginning. But, one must find something besides gardening and housework to occupy ones time.

July brings summer with 100 degree temperatures in my area. You don't want to go outside after 8am, so on top of the virus the heat keeps one in.
So it is all ready now to get the pieces sewn together and on to some quilting. It should end up at about 15" by 47''.

I have been on hold for a bit waiting for fabric to arrive for a couple of my current projects. My daughter asked for a quilt out of the stash I keep of finished baby quilts for her husband's sister expecting in October. She selected one that reminded me I had left over fabric and panel blocks from that original quilt, so I decided to pull those out and make a replacement.
I did discover all I had were these very small animal blocks. Well it is use what you have.
After digging around I did find four larger animal prints and framed them into 9 inch blocks finished.

I have been able to finish up my Tilda House quilt, it is one of three large quilts that I just got back from the quilter this past week. I was able to get this one bound and the handwork done.
I also got all the fused appliqués on the Cold Wind Blows piece. I am now working on machine stitching them with a small zigzag stitch with Sulky Invisible Poly thread. It is a bit of a pain to deal with, but I do love that it really is nearly invisible.
I decided to start a new project. Meadow Mist Designs has started the Morewood Mystery quilt. This month it is time to pick your fabric. I needed four coordinating fabrics. A nice way to dig into my stash and I found some really good ideas for it.
