It's the next to last day of June, which means it's past time to finish up this month's One Monthly Goal.
My June goal was to finish off the Christmas Angels quilt. Actually, stitching down the binding got done last night, but I had to wait till we had good lighting in the library to get the final photos. Even with good daylight, the colors look a bit flat. It really is much brighter in person.

Pattern by Kate
Started July 6, 2013, Finished June 29, 2019
Looking at the starting and finishing dates, almost exactly six years from when I started cutting the fabrics to when I finished the binding.
Trudy's quilting is always gorgeous. It's hard to tell in the photo but the thread is actually a gold color and has just a bit of shimmer to it. Very festive, without screaming Christmas.
Christmas Angels was number three on the 2019 Quilt Plan, which was supposed to have been finished in March. Better late than never. The last two finishes have been Christmas quilts. So I'll have one for me to decorate and one for my SIL to use this holiday season.
Linking up with Elm Street Quilts for the June One Monthly Goal. This is finish #3 for 2019 and takes the UFO count down by one, so it seems like a good fit to also link up with Tish's Adventures in Wonderland's UFO Busting post. Christmas Angels was also on my Second Quarter 2019 Finish Along list. So I'll be linking up with the 2019 Finish Along - Second Quarter when that post comes out next week.
