A Lovely Year of Finishes–May Completions

My Button

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

Squarey Tree ENTRY

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 Winking smile  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

My Favorite Block Quilt Along - Top Pieced! All 20 of the blocks, plus some, for the ‘My Favorite Block Quilt Along’ have been posted and it’s PIECED!



Goal 3:  Project QUILTING May Off Season Challenge – Pantone

ENTRY - Sticks of Pantone Quilt - Project QUILTING May 2013 Off Season Challenge

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.


This wasn’t on my list for May…but I finished something else too…Nini's Granny Square Quilt

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!


And since it’s Sunday…here’s my Haiku for today

  1. Congratulations on all the amazing finishes! Can't wait to see Barn Quilts week!

  2. Beautiful work. I am in love with your squarey tree; I started something with squares inside of squares last night, all from scraps and while I'm eons from being finished with it, your quilt is a great reminder of what my final vision for it might be...

  3. The square-y tree is fantastic! How large is it?
