July recap....

I only had one total finish for July.  I have 2 so close, quilted but no binding yet so I'll have 2 for sure for August.






I completed three tops, all of the circles appliqued on the spin blocks and then sewn together into two tops.  They are 40.5" square.  The little colorwash is 19.25" square.  Hopefully they will be finishes for August too.
Hand appliqueing the circles wasn't as bad as I expected it to be so I shouldn't have procrastinated for so many months.  The fabric for the circles is cotton woven in one direction (green) and metallic thread (red) woven the other direction.  The edges pressed under really crisply.

It's fun to look at the spin blocks especially those that had a fabric with some stripes which gives it a circle affect from a distance. I'm always intrigued with fabrics that give an added boost to the quilts.

The last block is WOW! Isn't fabric magnificent? You did a lot of picky work this month, plus the garden! All of it looks great!

Exuberant is definitely the right word to describe these!

I hope you found applique the circles relaxing by hand as I do. Even if you just got done with one project it is still something and we all have to have a slow month LOL

Oooh, I love the fabric you picked for the centers. It is a shame that photographs don't do that type of fabric justice.

It has been a treat to see all your posts this week. And your one completed quilt for July is wonderful. You complete more quilts, that most of us do not complete in a life time.

I wondered if you had to clip the edges around those circles in oder to make such a perfect circle. Knowing now about the metallic fiber in the fabric explains why you would not have had to clip the edges... you achieved such awesome precision.

I love, love the star quilt. It looks so 1950s with the checked fabric and so much red. I can see it on the wall of a white with red accents kitchen. :-)
