Curious July LaPetité

The July pattern for the LaPetité group is George by Rosie of Schnibbles fame.   George in the Curious George sort of Monkey Wrench block pattern sort of way.   A stretch but a cute one.

This is the pattern cover.

I used the charm packs Wild Rose by Blackbird Designs that I bought in Prairie du Chien, Wisconsin in the spring.  I also have a border fabric purchased that coordinates but there was no place for it here.  Sort of bummed I didn’t use it but I’m thinking of another plan for the fabric as I really like it!

It isn’t quilted yet (but all my other months but December ARE quilted and bound!!  🙂 ) but it is next.  I have a customer quilt on the frame now and should finish that soon but not sure I’d have that and this done by the end of the month.

I like my fabrics but not sure I’m thrilled with how they work in this pattern.  It will have a piece of the blue for the binding.  I like the pinks in the sashings.

I nearly had a heart attack after I had chosen my 12 (and only) charms for the sashings as the pattern listed.  Then I needed 4 more to get the strips long enough before cutting.  However, after cutting I had lots of pieces leftover so was thankful I didn’t have to insert blues with the pink.  But ARGH! on the pattern error that gave me a pause.   I’m glad it all worked out.  Is it just me or did you have a problem too?
