Saturday sewing and a June goal

breathe - in progress

As if I did not have enough to do, today I started to make this new Cycles quilt (if you don't know about this series you can check out Cycles, Cycles 2, Sunset and Snowfall under the My Quilts tab at the beginning of this blog). This new quilt is called breathe. Although the pictures don't show it well, all these fabrics are different colours.

Breathe is made up of circles which are 23" in diameter. After I took these photos, I added Essex linen borders so she is currently 70" square in total.
Once the matchstick quilting is done I expect she will be smaller, that is if I can manage to quilt such a big quilt that densely.

I have to show off the circles before they were pieced together - not too shabby.
Making the top of breathe took most of my sewing time today. So I am linkin up to Kim at My Go-Go Life for Sewjo Saturday.

A Lovely Year of Finishes
And since I expect I will want to finish breathe now that she is started, she can be my June goal for AYOLF. I know, it would be better to set one of my Q2 FAL goals, but breathe is on my mind tonight.

It's past bedtime. In the morning I will draw the winner to my draw for a copy of my pattern, Canvas.
