June's BOM progress

This week I have been focusing on getting my June blocks finished for my many block of the month quilts I am making. I am happy to report that most are now finished, with the exception being my buck a block. That I plan to finish this evening. To the left is my pansy applique block for my wooly flower quilt. I love pansys, but am not really thrilled with the design of these flowers.Maybe I should have changed it up a little to look more like real pansys. These at least look a bit like violas aka Johnny Jump Ups. And I love the polka dot fabric.

Below you can see my blocks for the Debbie Mumm garden quilt. I like the blocks. But it was hard for me to add the circle to the centers, because I didn't want to cover up my beautiful job of matching all those seams in the center. Oh well, I am sure someone else will appreciate being able to cover theirs up.

Finally we come to the blockcentral block of the month. I chose again to go with different fabrics in the same colorway for this block. I plan to use these same fabrics again next month. My hope is that I will have a controlled scrappy look when the is finished. All of my blocks have a common tan background fabric, so it should be ok.
