It's Bustin' Out All Over!

So ... June has arrived and I am tickled pink. Truth be told ... it's my birthday month and ... it is officially the start of summer vacation. As an empty nester (you kids are in such trouble for having the nerve to grow up and leave home) summer vacation loses some of it's meaning, but for some reason I felt a little giddy yesterday when I realized that it was, indeed, June. So sue me.

This is one of my all-time favorite quilts -- which served as the paper-piecing and the machine applique sample until just recently. I was thrilled to bring it home and hang it in the ol' Kingdom. As you can tell, I am a huge fan of assymetrical borders. Let's face it ... I am assymetrical.


I have not one but two (and by the end of today ... possibly three) projects in the works as we speak. So ... not only is June busting out all over, but so is The Stash.

So ... what's your favorite month? Why? ("December" as an answer will not be accepted ... unless it's your birthday month.)

The word "lively" that the first comment describes your quilt is right on! I love it! and your blog is so clean and fresh looking and is really coming together as it's own intitey (sp) anyway, it looks great and should be a magazine!XOXO

I love the whole look of these photos and this post. Your quilt is darling. Maybe I can see it in person sometime soon!

Oh, and my favorite month is also June. Not because it's my birthday month - you know how I feel about those. But because swim season has officially begun ... even in Illinois.

April--play ball-nuff said.

Not sure you should be bragging about breaking out the stash on the heels of the MTV Movie Award pot scandal, but I guess as long as none of the projects involves hemp it's okay.
