One Monthly Goal For June

How can one person be so busy and still not get anything done.  That's the question I've been asking myself all month.  I did work on a few things, but nothing is finished.  More than a few years ago, I joined a swap making Chimney Sweep/Album blocks using Civil War fabrics and Kona natural fabric.  I loved the way the blocks looked, but there weren't many of them and I though t the construction was a little fiddly so I put them away to mellow.

I pulled out the 12 original blocks and realized they would make a great quilt.  I finished 7 and plan on making an additional 11 before adding sashing, corner stones, and borders to flesh out the top.

We spent the first two weeks of May visiting Washington, DC and Florida.  Since it was a driving vacation, I took along some handwork to keep myself busy on the way.

I'll keep making groups of hexagons as my summer car project.  These were made from a charm pack of Martinique.  I have another Martinique pack and 2 other charm packs that use similar colors so I should be able to keep busy for a few trips.

In January, I chose a baby quilt that I planned to finish as my One Monthly Goal project at Elm Street Quilts to be used a gift for a new baby's first Valentine's Day.

It didn't happen.  The baby is now 8 months old and ready to be Christened on the last Sunday of June.  Hopefully, I can finish it in time.  I will be posting my One Monthly Goal for June at Elm Street Quilts.  Patty Dudek is the hostess and she welcomes everyone to join in.  If you haven't set your own goal, stop by and see what everyone else is planning to work on.


  1. Like many bloggers, I've been experiencing problems with notification of comments made on the blog. I make an effort to reply to everyone who comments. Please be patient if you don't hear from me for a few days.

  2. Your baby quilt is very sweet! I'm sure it will be appreciated and loved, no matter when it is delivered :) I'm looking forward to seeing your Chimney Sweep piece.

  3. I love your Chimney Sweep blocks. It will be a wonderful and beautiful quilt.

    Funny, I too just returned from a road trip where I got a ton of hand work done. It is lucky hubby prefers to drive.

    I wish you well on finishing your baby quilt.

  4. You'll get it done! Thanks for linking up with Elm Street Quilts One Monthly Goal and good luck with your project.

  5. Nice projects! I love the top blocks, and the quilt on the bottom is adorable - but do you know you have one block turned the wrong way on the bottom row?

  6. Congratulations, wonderful work, it's beautiful so much and good idea on site.
