Friday Night Sew In Results - June

After spending some time cleaning up my inbox and catching up on blogs and peeing the dogs too many times to count (!), I turned on the iron and got busy on my log cabin blocks!

I think that I am a little rusty. I had to square up each block before I could sew it to the next one and all I got done was the 3 bottom rows in this picture. But it's all downhill from here!

This is my May UFO for Judy's Challenge and I will be happy to get the top assembled before the end of this month. After I get the center assembled, then it's a bunch of four patches so those should go pretty quickly!

I don't have much planned for this weekend so I think I will work on it some more. Tomorrow is the Sock Club, but I think that I am not going to set my alarm and if I sleep through it, then I sleep through it. It won't be the last Sock Club so I can just hit the next one.

The pups think that spending the weekend in bed sleeping sounds wonderful!

Love that quilt, you will have it finished in no time. I really don't like to square up blocks, not one of my favorite things. Enjoy your weekend.

My goal is always to square up as I go. Well, that's the goal, anyway. Have a great weekend of sewing and catching up on sleep. Sounds blissful.

I didn't realize it was an on-point setting. Now I like it even more and look forward to seeing it complete.
