O.K. I failed miserably at finishing my June OMG....didn't even touch it. I forgot how busy June could be when I set that goal. I also didn't count on my sewing machine acting up. Yes Jane the Janome has started skipping stitches and has been breaking thread, and yes I have changed the needle and rethreaded her to no avail. It could be because
I ran over a basting pin when I worked on my daughters quilt but the machine didn't start to act till some time after that. I'm happy that I have Jasmine the Janome her more basic sister still in my possession as I have been using that machine for piecing. Jane is going to the sewing machine shop to get some t.l.c. tomorrow.
I've been working on the Rainbow Rose Quilt Along hosted by Ruth at the Modern Quilters Ireland. I fell behind a couple of weeks ago but I've managed to catch up.
This has been a fun quilt along and it's the first time I've worked on a colour wheel progression project. I'm pretty happy with the colour progression although I think the Tula Pink purple striped fabric is jumping out of the quilt right now. I guess it's the psychedelic portion of the quilt and I'm leaving it. I think it adds to the 60's vibe of the quilt.
I'm taking my cue from Tish of Tish's Adventures in Wonderland and setting my OMG for July as the finishing of this quilt. I have to add some negative space to the quilt to get it to my desired size of 50" by 60". Then I think I'll do some walking foot quilting on this one.
I'm linking my post to OMG hosted by Heidi of Red Letter Quilts and to Let's Bee Social with Lorna of Sew Fresh Quilts.
