June OMG Selection Process Winner Is
The month of June is just a fabulous time of year, don’t you think? First of all, it’s Sue’s birthday month and she loves to celebrate the entire 30 days. Life is short so why not celebrate as often and for as long as you can?! School is wrapping up or has already in the northern hemisphere and the weather holds the promise of warmer days and perhaps an actual end to winter. June also signifies the end to the first quarter and half of the year! Holy moly! I’m not thinking about Christmas shopping already . . . I’m not.
June OMG Processing
Were you wondering where I was going with all of that babble? It is time to select a June OMG project. So many options/projects to choose from – which one to pick? Option #1: we have Harley t-shirts awaiting attention with just five rows to sew together and then quilting may commence. Option #2: Hidden Star is all layered and has a quilting plan already in
place my mind. Both of these items are on the Quarter 2 list, and a completion of either project would be welcome.
Other June Options
Other avenues exist if those don’t fit the bill, such as Sandra’s Beothuk which has a linky party on June 15th. We could be really organized and have that all sewn together, layered and quilted by then. HAHA – good one – I crack myself up. That would be option #3, while #4 to consider is one of the TWO Dumbo panels I picked up for prosperity. The first finish was so much fun to quilt that I had to make two more, right?!
The recently determined colorway for the Cinderella quilt, in blue and yellow, would be Option #5 although that may require fabric purchase(s). Finally, the often overlooked, ignored and forgotten about Autumn Leaf project is also a contender. That quilt top is the abandoned hand quilting project dumped on my quilting pile rather unceremoniously.
EACH of these would make a fabulous OMG for the month of June. In fact, I should make all six projects the goal and give up working and sleeping.
June Red Herring?
Is there an unknown project that Sue is going to spring on me? Oh wait, that would be me who springs the unknown on her. What should we pick?? Drumroll please . . . Hidden Star or option #2 is the big winner. Way back when, and I’m talking weeks here, I had an actual quilting plan for this piece. Many hours anguishing over how to make this quilt shine were spent and now I can’t recall. Doesn’t it just figure?! I know I’m going to outline each of the hidden stars and let them stand out. The rest needs to be pulled from my gray matter and applied. We’ll all be surprised although this second photo may have slightly reminded me. ~smile~
Our June OMG project is to complete the quilting and binding on Hidden Star. We will link up with Patty at Elm Street Quilts. We are also linking up with Beth’s Cooking Up Quilts and at Becca’s What I Made Monday website today.
