I truly appreciate the value of a quilt retreat now --- had I not been preparing for guests and hosting, I might have gotten more done myself. Note to self: in the future, I have to set up some "mindless sewing" tasks if I'm hosting --- something that only needs to just be run through the machine. I need a "no thinking involved" project if I want to be able to be productive while hosting and teaching.
With regards to the June list, here's what happened:
I've decided I want to add sashing also cut from the shirt backs so have more fusing and cutting to do and found that hard to focus on with company around. So this one, which is the first time I've attempted to make this type of quilt, will also be an ongoing project.

6. (Not a quilt but quilt related) Terrace Barn
Oh, and not "officially" on the list but mentioned: I also did get to augment, with batting, the pillow form for the CW repro pillow I had made. My not-so-filled pillow went from this:
....so now resides on the chair with the Kaye England "CW Legacy" quilt.
For July, the list consists of all the carryovers:
1. Quilts Of Valor. Moving this to the top of the list since I hope to work on it some this weekend.
2. The T-shirt Quilt. Next priority since I need it for the house.
3. Pastel baby quilt. Like to get this commission job done.
4. Graduation quilt: Much like the QOVs, if not done, at least started.
5. Quilt CW Chronicles: This one is long overdue and I'm actually looking forward to doing some custom quilting on it so fingers crossed I finally get to it.
With all the major family commitments now done, I'm looking forward to being able to actually focus on all the things I personally want to do for the rest of the summer. Let's see if I can make that dream happen!
