12 in '12 Challenge - June Finish and Link-Up Plus Giveaway



welcome to the June installment of the 12 Quilts in ’12 Challenge! I’m hosting here on my blog, but be sure to check out the finishes of my co-hosts, safieh and liz! We hope you will join in!


before i tell you about this month's finish, i'd like to share a picture of my finished quilts for the first half of the year:
finished quilts - January through June 2012
ok, so ozzie isn't a finish, but i needed another pic to fill in the mosaic! 


i'm pretty pleased with my accomplishments when i can see them all together like this.

last month, instead of working on more unfinished projects on my list, i started a new quilt.  several of us were playing with a friend's Accuquilt Go! and i wanted to cut some drunkard's path blocks. since i had at least three Little Apples charm packs, i cut one, and cut an equal number of kona white to fill in.  later i cut a few in medium grey to mix with the white prints from the Little Apples line.


i didn't really have a plan in mind, i just started sewing my blocks and arranging them on my design wall.  i ended up with circles, and then i quilted about a 1/2" outside of each circle using my walking foot. i backed with a grey circles print from the DS Quilts line for JoAnn and used a print that reminds me of reinforcement circles from Moda's Hello Betty line.  this was my first attempt at curved piecing and i love how it turned out!!


jacey took these fantastic pictures for me before i had a chance to handstitch the binding to the back.

I just love your drunkard's path quilt! And how inspiring to see all the quilts you've finished this year! I found your blog from the HMQG blog and since I'm moving to Houston soon maybe we'll get to meet at a HMQG event. By the way, my real blog is now http://urbanstitches.com but I have to sign in here through my blogger account.

I am afraid the binding isn't stitched on mine this month -- so no finish for me. :(
