My July update - The Library Challenge

Time for my July update of the Library Challenge, hosted by Adrienne @ Chezzetcook Modern Quilts.  You can see my commitment to the challenge here.  
Back in January, when the Challenge started, I picked 5 projects to work on throughout the year.  Three are completely finished and in use, one is in flimsy state and the fifth one, Stars and Diamonds, has been traded out for something I want to work on much more. I just started to work on New #5 yesterday because I have been waffling for the past month on whether or not to stick with the Original #5 pick.  I have fallen out of love with  Original #5. I still like it and will probably make it somewhere down the road.    My New #5 pick is a pattern by LizzieBcrea8tive that is in an issue of Quilt-it...Today magazine. It is called "Happy Scrappy Hexies" and I have been crazy about this pattern since last summer.  Here are the fabrics I have picked.  Twelve different fat quarters of Amy Butler "Soul Blossoms" and twelve different Kona colours for backgrounds.  This pattern uses raw edge applique and should work up quickly.  It will be my picnic quilt.

one block cut out and ready to applique.  I am pinking the edges. I like the look

I am linking up with Adrienne @ Chezzetcook Modern Quilts.  Stop by and see how everyone is doing since last month's report.

Hope you had a quilty day!
