Lovely Month of Finishes - June

So for the month of June my plan is to get this Badger Quilt for Sam into a flimsy.

We are on vacation this month and won't have as much time to sew so I am going to try and keep this realistic.  

The pile on the right is 9 rows ready and then the other pile I still have 13 strip sets to sew and cut up and put into rows.  I did try to make the pieces bigger this time in hopes to make this quilt up a little more quickly than my previous 2.5 inch squares.  They are bigger but doesn't seem to be faster.  This is going to fit a full size bed very comfortablely. I usually make it to just fit and then forget about the shrinkage in quilting and washing!  

I am really liking this one and Sam knows its a Badger quilt but not the pattern and he can't figure it out even though I am sewing it right in front of him.  Love that!  I also found some fun novelty fabric (not Badger) for the back as he is into photography at the moment and he loves that it would be something he is liking right now.  So I may need to go pick that up in July!

I am linking up for a Lovely Year of Finishes.


  1. It is good to be realistic! This will be an awesome quilt. I love the Badger colors.

  2. What a great gift. Can't wait to see it finished.
