A Lovely Year of Finishes, May Goal

I'm going to keep this one simple.  I'm juggling a lot of projects and commitments right now.
Feeling super relieved to have finished pattern testing for a friend and having gotten two hives' worth of blocks done (and almost all packed up for mailing) for the 4x5....done with parent conferences, but not with evals.

Getting ready for high school graduation and retirement party season.

It's going to be a whirlwind month.

I'm working on a Penny Patch this month, but that's not what I'm counting for this month.

I'm going to put the Red/Purple quilt on my list as my May goal, simply because, if I don't, I worry it will sit in the chair in which it currently resides for another month.  It's basted; I'm just not jazzed about quilting it.  It's going to be a lot of straight lines.  Meh.

Purple/Red quilt

I really need to get my butt in gear and practice FMQ this summer.  I'm kind of bored of straight/organic lines.  I tend to hand quilt by default because of my crap FMQ skills.
That needs to change this summer.

Linking up!

  1. I've struggled with FMQ for years. I lack confidence I think. Straight lines work ; )
