Design Wall Monday--UFO update

On my Design Surface are the final two boxes from this month's UFO pick by Patchwork Times.  I pulled the box of 30s fabrics collected and pondered several options from the Scrap Basket books.  It all came down to the length of background fabric I had, plus wanting to use as many fabrics as I could. 
Except for the lower three fabrics, these are fat eighth cuts from a pack I purchased many years ago, probably at a quilt show, and are from a line called Everything but the Kitchen Sink.  I added a few more fabrics along the way, including the vintage red and white print at the bottom. 


I chose Summer Breeze from Scrap Basket Surprises by Kim Brackett.  Once again, my AccuQuilt GO cutter came in handy to cut a lot of pieces quickly.  

Here are the pinwheel and pieced block pieces all cut and ready to go.  I cut many more strips for the pieced borders but will wait until the center is done to balance out the colors with all the different fabrics.  This will be fun to work with later this year, all the happy prints and colors.  Only one more day of the month, and one more box to cut for!

Another slow build of fabrics for Beach Cottage, also from Scrap Basket Surprises.  These batiks will be so pretty together, I think.  It was especially hard to find the right light green batiks that did not have other colors.  I'll pair the brown with the light green, and purple with the tan.

Since Judy of Patchwork Times decided to stop Design Wall Monday posts, another Judy has taken this over, and I will be linking up for the first time with this post.  See lots of other great quilting on her Small Quilts and Doll Quilts blog HERE.

Two very nice fabric groupings, Annie. Something that really impresses me is that you actually make the quilts in that book. I look at them and drool over them and then put the book back on the shelf. I think you have two winners here. : )

So many possibilities with all the fabrics and the patterns. How will you make up your mind? What is your OMG for June?

Nice projects, ready to go. Scrap Basket Surprises is a great book, you have inspired me to dust off my copy!

Those are going to be such fun projects. What a great idea to have a prep month to get all your kits ready so you can just stitch away later.
