June


June was a busy month.  We began it by traveling to Maryland and Ohio to visit family.  Didn't get as much handwork done in the car as I wanted.  So, I am a little (like lots) behind in what I wanted to complete.

My June handwork and finishes:

I have a new great nephew arriving sometime at the end of July.  Here are pictures of his little boy quilt.  In my mind, boys don't like baby themes, this has a Tonka truck theme.  All boy to me.



His Dad is a policeman in the Houston, Texas area.  I was looking for police theme quilting and found this Texas Sherriff idea.  It is Edge to Edge Quilting by Amelie Scott Designs.  At first I was going to use the brown on the top but I didn't like it.  I changed the top thread to a cream and kept the brown for the bottom thread.  You can see the pattern design on the back.  I really enjoyed this one.


Here is the quilting pattern on the front.


I was able to keep tatting on the Doileys by Renulek.  Both have row 11 completed.  The #20 is 16.5 inches across and the #40 is 13.5 inches across.
