One Monthly Goal and others

My One Monthly Goal for June is to quilt and bind my Winged Things quilt. This was a state round robin clear back in 2003. Members of the state guild can sign up for a round robin group.  I signed up for a hand applique group. I didn't get enough blocks for a quilt so I had to add many more blocks to it.

This quilt has butterflies,  birds,  bees, bugs, and an angel. I love the blocks so much and enjoyed meeting new people during the round robin.

Other goals for June include:

1.  Finish my Sliced Quilt top . I finished it in  February but wasn't satisfied with the results.  I decided to put the houses all the way around instead of just the top and bottom.   I need to piece two more houses,  pick off the previous borders,  and put it all back together in a way that I like.

Here it is ready to pick off the borders.

Here are the new blocks I have made so far and a photo of the general direction I am aiming for with my new plan.

2.  Kit a family round robin quilt and sew up the first row before I pass it onto the next group member.   I also need to tutor our youngest member as she makes her section.  She is 13.  I need to help her this month because it is her mother's quilt and we want to keep it a surprise to her mom until the end of the rotations.  Group members just pass fabric to another member and don't see what was done with it until the end.   It is so much fun.

Here is what I started so far and the pattern.

3.  Sew up the June round robin that will be passed to me next week.

4.  Cut,  piece,  quilt,  and bind Chicks in the Garden

Here is a picture of the pattern and the flower blocks that I have cut and ready. 

5.  Quilt Justin's country quilt

6.  Quilt Mom 's blue and white quilt.  This one was a family round robin a few years ago so I made 1/5 of it. 

7. Make the May and June blocks for my Pieceful Country Quilt. 

8.  Assemble my Bear Paw Quilt Top.  All of the blocks are done except for these trees.

Today's linky parties include:

BOMs Away with Lynette
UFO Busting with Tish
Show and Tell Monday with Bambi
MCM with Beth
