This is a free pattern on the American Patchwork & Quilting website that I had long planned to make from my CW scraps. It also gave me a chance to use my new Accuquilt Go! cutter to cut out the applique circles. However, it is not totally complete because the pillow insert I bought for it turned out to be too small (and you'll see in the picture below how I got the shot above). This happened even after I realized that the insert I bought prior to making the pillow was going to be too small and then returned to the store and exchanged it for a larger size. Unfortunately, even the replacement was not big enough to fill the pillow and since it was the largest size round insert they had, I was still stuck. However, I have a plan ---
This one was on April's GID list for decorating purposes and represents the most important of the projects in that category that I need to get done. I had picked out all the shirts I wanted to use for this project back in April (and there's one more in use that will be added). I had bought that pack of t-shirt quilt interfacing sometime last year when I happened to catch it on sale. This will be the first time I've attempted to make this type of quilt so hopefully it will be a fun learning challenge too.

I had planned to put making QOVs on the May list in honor of Memorial Day but since I never even got to make up that list, here it is now! It also has a decorating component to it so with guests coming and the patriotic season still in force until July 4, now is a good time to try to get at least one of these done for donating.
6. (Not a quilt but quilt related) Terrace Barn Sign
It stayed pretty cold here almost right up to Memorial Day so it was only last week that I finally hosed off my terrace, uncovered the patio furniture and got all the planters filled. Although there were two quilt-related projects on the April list for out there, the barn sign is the top priority for me right now. I had prepared the wood last year and have finally decided on the design I want to use so it's just a matter of getting to the taping and painting!
So that's it, hopefully doable and hopefully more regular posts to follow! Here's to a productive June!
