So I finished working on my block today. Seeing we are at the half way point I decided I would also post a picture of all my six blocks together. Wow only six more blocks togo.. As always once I post my block I dont want to hurry life along, but Im always looking forward to the beginning of the next month to see what new block is posted and what challenges it can bring.

Was a pretty good quilty day. I finished my June Doll Quilt. Thats right, done! Quilted, done! Binding, done! Label, done! So, now when I go to the post office this week I will be mailing my doll quilt and needlebook.
And, I decided what I want to do for my July doll quilt. I'm pretty sure...positive actually...that I'm going to play with my NEW ish twister tool. And, of course, Red/White/Blue. So, I'm going to check my scrap bin first. But, I have lots of Patriot fabric to use.

Last year there was a "Noodle Swap" ( 2 1/2 strips like jelly rolls) that I took part in, I completed 1 quilt right away, then got working on this one - finally put it on my bed since I had planned it as a "Summer Quilt" thought I'd share, as the noodle swap prints were so nice, and I haven't seen another swap of this type - anyone else from that swap completed any quilts?????
The floral embroideries were something I saw on sale on the web - at the time I bought them I
