Sticking with the quilt plan for 2018, July's project is Inverted Star. I found the project box and put the blocks back up on the design wall yesterday. Very bright and very colorful, my favorite kind of project.

Inverted Star is my Rainbow Scrap Challenge project from 2014. The final quilt is supposed to look like this.
That setting needs 64 sawtooth star blocks. When I decided on this setting last year, I started making 5 blocks as part of my Rainbow Scrap Challenge stitching each month.
As of yesterday, there are 33 stars completed. About half of what I need to finish the quilt. I'm almost three months behind on the star blocks. The last two pink blocks are over at the sewing machine, I've just started cutting the teal blocks. This month's color RSC color is red, I've not even pulled the fabric for those yet.
Now to decide what the actual goal is for the month. I've not done very well with my OMG's this year, I've only finished 3 of the 6 for 2018. It's been hard to gauge what's achievable in the time I have to stitch. Assembling the 31 stars needed to finish the quilt isn't likely to happen this month, but maybe I can get the blocks ready to set. The goal for this month is to get the narrow white frame and the colored frame around each block. So then the blocks will be ready to set together the next time this project comes around.
