July LHN monthly



I finished this a day late, but it was worth being late....
I do believe this one is my favorite so far....I did not have any of the called for flosses, so I resorted to my Victorian Motto Sampler flosses & came up with the substitutions. I am real happy with the end results. I love the colors of this monthly...and July is my favorite month....
This is finish #29 for the year & finish #10 of 15 in the Crazy Challenge that was started in January. Only 5 to go & they are the monthlies for August thru Dec.
On Wed., a group of us from my church went on a day trip to visit Quilt Gardens in our area. There are 18 all together. We visited 15 of them that day & will see the other 3 in a couple weeks. I took LOTS of pictures but obviously can't show them all here....I will show you a few of my favorites..some quilts & some other pictures.
I would like to thank everyone for stopping by my blog & especially those of you who take a couple minutes out of your busy day to leave me a comment. They are always so encouraging and uplifting...
Have a wonderful holiday weekend......we sure will!! Certain little people will be here.....

I agree, Shari--I think your July finish turned out beautifully :) Amazing that you've had 29 finishes this year--at this rate you'll set a new record for yourself!

I would love to see those gardens some day--what a great idea to make a quilt design with flowers. Make sure you show us the rest of your photos after your next visit...

Happy 4th of July :)

You're LHN looks great - and 29 finishes? Wow, that's quite an accomplishment!

Those gardens are beautiful, my Mom and Sister are both quilters and would just love those. Where are they exactly?

Also, I noticed you mentioned using the Victoria Motto Sampler threads - are those the ones I've seen on Ebay? I've often wondered how well those stitch up with, can you tell me? Have a wonderful holiday!
