It’s not quite the end of May but this week is going to be ‘Barn Quilt Week’ on my blog (don’t worry – more details coming soon) so I decided I should post my finishes a bit early. Let’s take a look at my May goals for the ‘A Lovely Year of Finishes’ and see how I did.
Goal 1. Project QUILTING Fat Quarter Shop Bundle Challenge – COMPLETE
I finished my squarey tree quilt for the challenge! I even quilted it myself – I’m super proud of that! I’ll be blogging more about my process later on my blog but for now you can an all just drool over the picture All the Challenge quilts are due on May 30th so keep an eye out for all the entries as they pop up on the flickr group – I’m seeing five amazing quilted creations so far….
Goal 2: My Favorite Block Quilt Along Top Pieced – COMPLETE
All 20 of the blocks, plus some, for the ‘My Favorite Block Quilt Along’ have been posted and it’s PIECED!
I finished the Pantone Project QUILTING Challenge with this modern, fun quilted table runner! I will also be blogging about it more once ‘Barn Quilt Week’ is over.
OTHER – FINISHED
Remember in April I finished my Granny Square quilt top for one of my goals? Well – Barb of Quilts by Barb did an amazing modern wavy quilting on it and got it back to me super fast. I quickly bound it and gave it to its new owner who LOVED it! You can read more about it HERE.
For the fifth month – I love setting these goals for myself. I had a rough month with some unplanned things occurring. I already knew I was going to be tight for time but without this challenge, I’m guessing not many of these things would have gotteen done so thanks for the challenge Ladies!
