June OMG: Continuing May OMG

I spent most of the month fighting with thread tension issues, which slowed this down quite a bit.  I didn't make my May goal of finishing the quilt.  However, over Memorial Day weekend, I worked out that my thread setup was contributing to the problem.  Addressing that stopped the thread from winding around my needle.  I still had some issues - I buried twelve sets of threads in one diamond alone (that's a lot of starts and stops).  But the rest of it quilted up a lot faster.

The diamonds are done, as are the green squares.  I've got the rest of the squares to go.  So my goal this month is the same as last:  get this quilted, bound and labeled.
