June Finishes and July Hopefulls and Early Bird Christmas Crafting

I think I really blew it for June.  I had only two projects and ummmm....I couldn't get either one done.  Not that I'm complaining, because I been having a wonderful time vacationing instead.  So here we go.  I did work on one of Val Laird's BOM.  It's fun to work on.  I just simply do not to it.

Then I have my 30's quilt.  Oh I really thought it would be easy to finish.  But no.  I did get it together and even made the prairie points.   And oh lucky me I found the perfect binding in lavender and green. However, I simply didn't have time to find some more fabric to make the border, until today when I went to Joann's.

Okay so that's my unfinished projects for June.  No worries though because Morro Bay, Las Vegas and Salinas were much more fun.

And while I was in Vegas I went to Fabric Boutique.  If you are ever there you've got to go it's a great shop.  And it's next to Wal-Mart so Hubby went there and I spent a long time in Fabric Boutique.  I bought some really fun stuff.

First:  This great jelly roll - Lilly and Will by Bunny Hill. 

Is this just too pretty?  I love it. 

They had a cute quilt on the wall using this pattern.  I don't have any plans to use it soon.  I bought for later.

And happy day I found these prints.  These will be turned into pillowcases. (Teal will be the trim)

 And check out these coordinating fabrics?  These will be used to make napkins.
  (Early Bird Challenge using two colors -WhooHoo!!!)

Update:  I was so excited about these I make them up (all eight napkins) in one day.  So fun and easy.  My grandmother taught me to use knives to hold my fabric down while cutting.  Using them and hearing them click against each other brought back fond memories of her.

Do you like them?

So all these will be my July Projects  This will make for some very happy stitching!  Linda
