June Dirty Dozen, 6-1-21

Our last Dirty Dozen number is 2. Most of you had only that number remaining but for those who joined late, it’s number two.

Because I knew most of you already figured out your last number I spent the day cleaning and mowing. Now it’s time for a beer on the porch and tonite Hazel needs a bath.

Here is the source for the neutral 4 patch with red cornerstones – Scrap School!

Here is the quilt I made from the book:

Here is the quilt in the book:

Mine is all neutrals because I had the four patches leftover from another project. It doesn’t photograph well.

Notice Tim’s corn behind the quilt.

Hope you’re all starting to work on your final dirty dozen project. Gather twelve more and number them 1-12 and we’ll start again on July 1.

    what a great quilt. I appreciate your eye to use a different color scheme and it looks great and is no even recognizable. That’s the book my current project is in- Forever friends.

    Oh never fear I started my new list of 12 DD….several are carried over from this last list. I decided If they don’t get done this time around, then they need to move on to the donation station of the thrift store. I like how you use the text prints in your latest designs. They add such a vibrant feel to your quilts.

    Yeah!! Looking forward to a new dirty dozen! It is so satisfying to complete a quilt each month. Thanks Mary.

    I like your quilt much better than the one in the book. Don’t mean to hurt anyone’s feelings but….

    I very much like the neutrals in the 4patch quilt. I made a “neutrals with the Yellow Brick Road pattern and used it as the background for a collection of Dresden Plates that I made several months ago. I’m really happy with my background idea. I agree, your quilt is MUCH nicer than the one in the book!

    The neutrals don’t look like a Country Threads quilt but I love both of them. Such pretty colors.

    I like both designs (neutrals and scrappy). I purchased the Sisterhood of Scraps book as I like your
    quilt , Friendship Starter, that you posted earlier. The pictures of all the quilts that have been
    posted are great. Like looking at them. I made a Yellow Brick Road quilt with the basic colors but
    added turquoise to the combination. We are still without rain in SE South Dakota. We’ve had a
    total of little over 1 1/2″ way early. So far the crops are looking ok. Send some rain our way.

      Glenda Fletcher – I wish I could send rain your way. Now our weather is going to get to 90 degrees for several days – things will dry out fast around here!

    2. Susan K in Texas

      You can have some of our rain! We’ve had 19 or 31 days in May with rain in the Dallas Texas area. And we’re supposed to get another week of rain now. Of course once it stops we’ll have three months of hot weather with no rain. Feast or famine.

      1. Mary Etherington Post author

        Susan K – you’re right! We don’t want constant rain either – I hate that soggy wet feeling in the air! And yes, when that rain stops it will get hot and stay hot and I hate air conditioning! I want the windows open!

    Doing the Dirty Dozen this past year has made me concentrate and finish a lot of projects that have been marinating for years. I may not have followed my list exactly but I got things done. I’m looking forward to getting more finished in this next 12 months.
    Thanks Mary for organizing it!
    I like the neutral quilt.

    Hello, thanks for the June number. My email for April said that was also number 2. Am I following two Dirty Dozen groups? Looking forward to finishing more quilts by following along with the new list.
