Still early, my guess is Jean is outside watering her beautiful flowers! She'll be along!

Hugs,
Betty

OK, thanks Betty. Wasn't sure I was in the right spot. I recall the board changed it someway. Janet

I'm leaving for a luncheon engagement and really hope to see the July thread posted when I get back. Getting the info for a BOM that you are actually sewing, becomes addicting. But what a nice addiction.

Thanks CajunBear for the kind words. I'm pondering my sashings right now. Luckily, that dark brown fabric came from Hobby Lobby and I managed to get a couple more yards the other day. I'm good to go now. By the time I show the next blocks, I plan to have some of the sashings on the blocks. I am doing an on point setting, so I will choose two sides and add the sashings to every other block. On the other hand, I don't know where the blocks might end up, so I might just get all the sashings sewed and do the final block placement later in the year. And then sew all the sashings to the blocks. I still have to figure out the corner blocks within the sashing. Just not sure about those yet.

Default One June Block

Okay I have my June Blocks...but for the 2nd time found an error in the Baton Rouge Square...it's a dyslexic thing with me I do believe. Where there are HST involved, I don't mind doing them but when they are placed oddly as these were....I have the most trouble. I wanted to start my July Blocks today, but I'm cutting out the extra June one and the July blocks so will have to wait until Saturday! lol Here is Alaska Homestead though:

WOW CajunBear, that's gorgeous.
If what you are calling dyslexic is that you are getting parts turned wrong, here is a tip... Your block board and camera are your best friends! Here are pix of mine from another BOW. I purchased a 14" x 14" dry erase board and covered it with flannel. Lay out your block pieces. TAKE a PIX. If blocks are turned wrong you will see it much easier in the pix than looking at the pieces. I lay my board right beside my sewing machine and sew parts and replace them as I go. Hope this helps...

Thanks Jan, would you believe I do that! lol It's the camera that finds my errors when I can't see them at first. I used to just post a photo and others would tell me! But now I check, double check and triple check and still sometimes one will slip by me! Thanks for the help. I covered a bulletin board I had with black felt...sure works. It's on the wall just by my machine and I love it..

Thanks Jan, Okasewnsew and Aunt59, I love that fabric too! I had a small private group years ago and we did florals. I still have stacks of florals that's why I am trying to use them in this BOM! lol

Hugs,
Betty
