You know what THAT means, don't you???
It was time to lay things out on the Design Floor:

I present my June quilt QAL quilt top:
51 x 68

If YOU love this fabric, I've got about 8 more yards or so. Leave me a comment to that effect and maybe we can work a deal.

There should be quite a few wonderful scrappy projects for your viewing pleasure. I bet that YOU will find (at least) one that you will want to start sewing right away.
Quilting along is FUN!!!
