The OMG has been a great motivator the last year. I've tried to pick projects that have reached places where I tend to stall out. If I use that as my guidance criteria for picking this month's goal, then figuring out a setting plan for the Scrappy Coffee Cup blocks would be a good goal.

Block patterns from Karen F. Srebro and Janet McCarroll

These blocks are also this month's July UFO project. So it would be nice to see some progress on getting these into a quilt, but that takes a plan first. I don't have any more of the background fabric. This was my first Rainbow Scrap Challenge project and I didn't realize that I might want some background left over to use for the setting. I've been stalled on the setting since realizing that. Here's the one quilt mock up I attempted several years ago.
It's a bit "blah" don' you think? I need to go stash diving, I believe I bought a print with coffee cups on it to use for the outer border. Not sure where that ended up. But maybe this quilt should have a scrappy border? So that's the goal for July, come up with a final setting plan for these blocks. They won't come off the UFO list till I get at least that far. These blocks date from 2012. It would be nice to finally get them into a quilt.
Linking up with Elm Street Quilts for the July One Monthly Goal.
