- Junebug's Star Spangled Diamonds Quilt

- Storybook Hexagon Label
- Baby Girl Quilt #2: Pink
- Baby Boy Quilt: Cowboy
- Aspen Frost Runner
- Storybook Hexagon Label--I always space the quilt label. Do this immediately before I decide it's not important anymore. (I'm a historian at heart, and think there is significant historical importance in regards to labeling quilts.) The main hold-up on this is buying a fabric pen for writing the information on the label.
- Baby Quilts--all three need to be completed and delivered before we leave for Australia.
- Rocket Age full blocks need to be assembled before leaving, so I can applique the hexie blossoms to them while we're away.
- IF the above are done, I can finish the Braid Quilt before we leave. It's so close to being done, but it's a random side project that I started working on because I was waiting for supplies for the other quilts.
- The Star Spangled Quilt will be pieced completely by hand, and it's portable--work on this while at softball games, park day, etc. It's going to take a loooong time to complete, don't worry about progress at this moment.
- Aspen Frost--this can wait until we come home from Australia.

OK. It just feels better to write it down and look at everything in a realistic time frame. Everything was going fine until the baby quilts popped up onto the radar. (All an issue due to my own misinterpretations of information.) And now that I've posted my intentions, I can also check back in with progress updates, which are fun for me. Happy Summer of Sewing!
