July Goal Setting

July is here!  Time is flying.

On the 1st the hubby and I celebrated our 24th wedding anniversary.  It seems like forever and it seems like it hasn't been any time at all.  Does that make sense?  We decided we are going to do something really special next year, we just have to decide what, and how to pay for it.  I'm sure a lot of you know how that goes!

For July my main goal is to get the two quilts that my daughter in law's best friend commissioned done.  I'm making good progress on the first one and I have a plan for the second one.

I'm going to make the Wonky Star quilt my goal quilt for ALYOF.  Here are the center blocks all laid out for it.  Now to get them joined and then turn it into a twin sized quilt.  I'll also have to figure out a way to "label" each block since the center of each block is from a piece of clothing from a memorable event.  I really got creative with the Easter one.  How the heck am I going to quilt it?? LOL!

So there it is!

This is going to be a sweet quilt. Where did you find the lettering for Monroe? That's a really pretty block!

Popping over from a Lovely Year of finishes. I LOVE your wonky stars! These are adorable. I can't wait to see your big finish at the end of the month!
