Did you know I'm a Charming Girl.....


I just found out about this little club this afternoon. It's a group that was started by Kelly at Charming Chatter. The deal is that we post our UFO's or WIP's on our blog by the 7th of each month (note the date today!! I better hurry). If we finish whatever we blogged about by the end of the month, we are entered into a drawing.

And the best part is.....if you don't finish what you said you would, the quilt police don't come to your door and arrest you! You just aren't entered into the contest.

Well, I'm going to be brave and enter two. I don't have any plans for the rest of the month.

The first one is a class I took back in February. I have finished 36 of the 63 blocks. So just 20 something more to do plus the border, quilting, and binding. Piece of cake!


The other one is a quilt I have been wanting to make for quite a while. And since this is CIJ - Christmas in July (see my explanation just under the header), I thought I would give this a shot. It's a Cheri Saffiote-Payne pattern. I haven't even picked out the fabric yet but I KNOW I have them all so it shouldn't be too hard.


So wish me luck! And if I don't blog for a couple of days, it's because I am lost in a sea of green plaids!

Blessings, Cathi

I love your choice of patterns for the Charming Girls Quilt Club. Can't wait to see what you come up with. Good luck with finishing! I should be working on my projects for this month instead of checking out what everyone else is working on. LOL

Nice picks for July and I have every confidence that you will finish them both. Will you be at the meeting on Saturday working on one of them?
