Thank you all for your comments.  Most everyone likes the boarder.  I am still not sure but I have it hanging on the design wall to see if it grows on me.

I did diagonals for the third cut and then sewed together.

Nice work Judy E. I like the diagonal set.

Nana,  you had a post of a controlled scrappy vs a scrappy.  Where was this, I would like to look up that pattern and directions please?  BTW thanks for all your help with this scrappy adventure.

Carol:
Anybody know why these group threads are wider than the regular ones?

No ads in the side bar.

I have my July scrappy blocks done, finally, after my company left.

I like your blocks. I see some flying geese in there.

Donna, I like the first border with the purple and tan (or gold?, can't tell, it's a little blurry), it plays great with the inner tannish border.

I like the second, Donna.  It calms the gold down and says WOW!

I agree with with Penny. The second option works better for me.

So many pretty quilts!  Hope I don't leave anyone out. If I do, I didn't mean to! Honest!

Gwen--I really like the way your blocks look.  Very nice!  I'd have a hard time cutting them up, too.  Your MQ6 is lovely. It has such nice dignified colors...refined looking!

Judy--Your borders really make your quilt top!  Your young man will love this quilt!

Nana- Your Scrappy Garden is beautiful!  Don't know how you could let somebody sit on it and eat fried chicken...way too nice!

Carol--Love your blocks!  The b/w prints really pop! Can't wait to see how you border it. You always do such wonderful borders!

JudyEE-- absolutely love the way you set the top together. Makes it look like a very different top from the other scrappies.

I finally got my July scrappy quilt together, except for the binding.  I just can't decide how I want to bind it yet. An idea will wander by...I'll just have to wait for it!

I got the first step of the instructions done without any problem. But when I put the blocks on the design board to see how they looked, how many I'd need, etc. I hit  a snag...I didn't want to do anything else to them except sew them together.  I TRIED, NANA!!! Honest!! I really tried. But I just couldn't do it.  I even took them down, worked on something else, and came back to them two weeks later.  Sorry, Nana!  I wanted to follow directions...

But I just followed my heart, sewed 'em up, and made a backing for them out of some remaining fabric.  I added three little accent blocks, made from scraps from the front. The back was looking kind of pastel-ey, and I thought they brightened it up a bit.  I also tried a new (for me) quilting pattern. I like it, but It was a bit of a PITA for me to lay out. Too much geometry for this old lady!  I used a dark variated purple thread for the top quilting, and a pale variated yellow/green thread for the back.

Anyway....here's mine for the July Scrappy Project:

 

And the back (blue at the very bottom is design board):

Thanks, Nana!  Both the June and July projects were fun! And I've got three nice lap quilts to send as donation quilts for the Alzhemier's Research Project.

Donna--My vote is for the 2nd less busy looking purple.  It think it will look great!

Max--your quilt is beautiful!  Love all the bright solids--it looks like a Modern quilt that you planned rather than a scrappy that "happened."   It's awesome!  

Your quilting is amazing too.  Did you do it on a long arm or your sewing machine?

You should definitely keep right on following your heart!!
