Hi and First Photo

Thank you so much for the welcome! I was so excited when I saw this challenge because it will help motivate me to keep sewing and also to bring all my projects together. I would like to use the fabrics I am working on each month in each block. I have a lot of things that I am working on, so that should work! I also designed a little stitchery for the month. I am putting buttons on each corner that have to do with the current month. This month is my birthday, so the buttons are a few of my favorite things - tea, sewing and cats. :) I am going to put the stitchery on my blog when I get organized, so others can use it if they like.

Here it is so far:

I need to get going because it is nearly the end of the month.... it is really hot here at the moment and I slowed right down! Anyway, that's all for now. I'm enjoying everyone else's quilts! You are all doing so well!

lv,

Joy

How cute the buttons are. I don't know why I hadn't thought of using buttons on mine as well! Lordy, I bought tons of "specialty" buttons when I started working on my daughter's quilt for graduation (that was 3 years ago and it still isn't sewn together) so I might as well use the buttons on this one! At least they won't just be sitting there.
