Color Girl Challenge Roundup + *Giveaway*

How did June go by so fast?! How did we do on our challenge to finish up quilts-in-progress this month? Last week I told you about finishing one on my list.  Today I have another to mark off my list!  While it’s not a complete finish, one of my goals this month was to complete the top of my Quilt Along Pixie Medallion quilt and get it ready for quilting.Pixie Medallion quilt pattern by Color Girl Quilts, with Art Gallery Fabrics

I am happy to report that the top is finished and the backing is sewn up! I’ve arrange to send it to Barbie of  The Quilting Mill for custom quilting…so excited to see this one all finished up. The challenge goal really helped give the push needed to get this one done up. It was *so* close to being done when we wrapped up the quilt along in April. All it needed was those final strip borders around the whole thing. The problem was that I needed to buy that striped fabric and that pause was just enough to make the project stall out. Do you ever do that? all gung ho on something, and a tiny delay just throws you all off.

If you like the fabrics I used here and want to get a similar look, check out the new CMYK fabric bundle, just listed in the shop.
