At the beginning of the year I made a list of 12 projects (mostly UFOs) I hoped to complete during the year in no particular order. So far I have only completed 4.

I pulled the scrappy anvil quilt top (#6 on list) and got it sandwiched. I stitched-in-the-ditch between blocks so it should be stabilized for free-motion quilting.I am still thinking how I want to do the rest of the quilting, but at least I’m making progress.
I have such a hard time not starting a new project until I finish a UFO. I have 2 comfort quilts finished and ready to turn in at church quilt group tomorrow. For a break from quilting I took time yesterday afternoon to cut 42 -10” squares (layer cake) for a quilt kit for Double Slice Layer Cake. You can watch Jenny’s tutorial on YouTube at Missouri Star Quilt Company. I used the top fabric as a guide for pulling coordinates from my stash.
I finished another baby quilt that will be gifted soon. The baby boy was born a couple of weeks early. I chose the main fabric because it has fire trucks and the father is a fireman.
Stay cool and enjoy time sewing or quilting.
