July OMG Finish

Here is my July finish. I have really been trying to grow my skills on the long arm. I both learned and accomplished a lot on this quilt. I found a great foot in my box of Janome feet that is clear and has a little red arrow that keeps my needle perfectly on the edge of the binding as I topstitched it down.

This pattern is from Terry Atkinson's book Allegro.

This was my goal for July. I'm linking to Elm Street Quilts July OMG Finish linkup.

Progress on One Monthly Goal

I've been quilting. Started out with free hand flowers. Added pebbling. Finally a diamond pattern. More pebbling. This repeats three times ending in a row of flowers.

Trying to grow my skills. Done is better than perfect.

Happy quilting!

July OMG

I have had this quilt top done for probably 7 years, maybe more. I have quite a few unquilted tops and really need to get them finished.

i loaded it on the frame last week but finally convinced myself today to get started.

I have the quilting design all drawn out so now it's a matter of executing.

My goal is to quilt and bind this quilt this month. I'm linking up with Elm Street Quilts for the July OMG linkup.
