July 1st Parade!!!

Hello everyone!!!  I know I know I have been gone for one month!!  But truely I have a GREAT reason!!!  We  bought this...................


Our new home!  And so I have been busy getting our current home ready to sell and on the market and of course packing , pitching and more packing!!  Its been crazy, we also sold one of our rentals as well so as you can imagine I have been cray cray with everything.  

Because of this I did not partcipate in this months challenge and since it is smack dab in the middle of a VERY HOT summer AND the middle of this remodel and move (we are not moving in and living in a construction zone, its all getting done) I have decided to take the summer off of challenges and will resume in September. I will post the new project September 1st.  I know because of a break I may loose some of you and I get that.....ANYONE can participate and ANYTIME so jump in when you feel and come back if you decide to leave.  NO worries, no strick rules.  Soooooo without further adue, I must admit I was surprised that participation was very low, but thats okay, summertime is hard!

First up we have Laurie, look at her lovely quilt and as usual a lovely vinette! Loving the quilt and the longaberger baskets!!!  (I heart them) Check out her wavy flag material!  Clever!

Next up is Gale and I believe she is new to the group! Welcome Gale!  Her flags really pop with the tan background, lovely job!

And last but not least is Robin, She scaled hers way back and did 9 blocks....LOVE IT!!!!!

Tania made this flimsy a few years ago for a friend in New Zealand that loves the USA!!!  What a lovely gift

Anna sent in her version and its beautiful!  Love that border!! 


And thats it, just five participants this go around.  I do wish you all a lovely COOL summer and hope that you come back to visit....I will post when I can, moving is just so hard!!!  But I will be definitely Starting the challenge again in September!!!!!  Join anytime!!!!  Hugs my friends and remember GOD LOVES YOU!!!!

  1. Congrats on your new home. I DID make 3 small quilts this month for swaps- just couldn't handle anymore. Just think, I actually made quilts, not just tops! Have a great and productive summer, see you in September.
