blink and you'll miss it

Isn't that how June felt? Each month seems to go by so quickly but that really did fly!

Here's most of what I did this month:

The Cheater Robot Quilt, The Braidadelic Quilt, apron, tea towel, sampler, jean patch, initial cushion
bear paw tutorial, bell pepper coasters, owl tooth fairy cushions, skull tooth fairy cushions
Le Challenge Maritime dress, coasters

I also managed to finish three of my FAL projects this quarter, which I have linked up:

she can quilt

The next quarter starts soon so if you have WIPs you'd like done why not commit to trying to get them finished - it's a fun way to stay motivated and there's prizes too!

I'm still working on EPP projects and a few other bits and pieces (14 days until the Le Challenge link up!!).
After a recent quilting disaster I'm sticking to what I really love and currently that's my bear paws!

If you've got some paws join the Flickr group and add your pictures to the inspiration.

 I just put in a repeat order at The Polished Button
