June Goals Update

It is just a day away from the end of June! It has been a busy month! 
Regardless of the busyness, I managed to complete all my goals!
My first goal was to complete the baby quilt for my niece's 2nd baby daughter. 
I decided to name this quilt Spread Your Wings. Some of the blocks are paper pieced and some are pieced. I played around with the angles so the butterflies would appear like they were fluttering about.
I FMQ with meandering loops like the flight of a butterfly. 
It finished at 35" x 42 1/2"
I used various teals and purples, some from my stash, others I purchased for this project from Connecting Threads. The background is Kona white.
On the back I pieced an extra butterfly block. 

A bonus was to complete the city bank quilt (renamed The Colors of Purple). 
I finally got it quilted using my new rulers in a clamshell pattern. 
This quilt is made using mostly solids...Kona and American Made, some Grunge, a Tula Pink print, and the green print from my stash. 
The back is a piece I found at Joann's that coordinated well.
Pattern is from the book City Quilts by Cherri House.
The finished size is 60" x 69"

I also finished by Rainbow Scrap blocks in yellow!
And the Milky Way QAL using yellow. This month's star is called Capella.
