A Lovely Year of Finishes–Mid May Check In

Today is May 15th.  I have to say – it feels like it should be a lot later in the month than that!  I have had a dozy of a May – threw out my back, scratched my cornea and had duct surgery... At least that’s three things so much luck is bound to change!  Through all that I have managed to get some of my ‘goals’ worked on and even one finished!    Let’s take a look at my May goals and how I’m doing on them… for the ‘A Lovely Year of Finishes’.

A Lovely Year of Finishes

Goal 1.  Project QUILTING Fat Quarter Shop Bundle Challenge


The final piecing has begun!  I snapped this picture before I came upstairs to have some lunch…  If things go smoothly – I hope to have it pieced before I go and get Pip from the sitter…  If it goes super smoothly I would LOVE to have it loaded on the quilt frame…Wish me luck!

This Fat Quarter Shop Challenge quilt HAS to get done this month though so wish me luck!

Goal 2:  My Favorite Block Quilt Along Top Pieced – FINISHED


My Favorite Block Quilt Along - Top Pieced!

All 20 of the blocks for the ‘My Favorite Block Quilt Along’ have been posted and it’s PIECED!


Goal 3:  Project QUILTING May Off Season Challenge – Pantone


I still haven’t started the May off season  Pantone Project QUILTING Challenge.    I do have an idea and even my ‘neutral’ fabric picked out for it…but I have not even thought about starting it.  We’ll see if this one ends up happening or not…


I have to say – with all my ‘delays’ this month I’m pretty proud of what I’ve still managed to accomplish so far…


  1. I loved the Pantone spring fashion palette as soon as I saw it and thought I'd be making something for the challenge, too ... but I don't think it's going to happen before the Project Quilting deadline.

  2. I love all your projects...congrats on the progress so far!

  3. I am very fond of you goal # 2. Love the fabrics!

  4. I love the tree quilt and the owls! Looks like you're making good progress.

  5. Thanks so much! I am really making progress. Almost done with my May goals! hooray!
