May For Me - Day 31
I truly hope that everyone has had a spectacular May For Me - I know I have. The Bingo will continue to be called until we have the final Bingo - Blackout (completely covered card). It would so nice of all of you to give Tonya a huge thank you - she was the brain-child of the Quilt Bingo (planning began in Dec) and has fielded all the complaints and questions all month - I am sure she could use some love in her e-mail today.
My last project to show for the month is a variation of the Jelly Roll Race quilt - great idea of Sheila at Sew,Cook,Travel - the link takes you to her version which has those squares so nicely scattered, mine not so. I think I will applique a black silhouette of some kind in those spaces. This will be linked up with Megan's 'Let me see your Jelly Roll' monthly challenge over at Crooked Seams - you should consider this challenge next month. Don't have a Jelly Roll? Cut your own out of your stash - Sheila does it all the time and just amazes me with her strip quilts.
Yes, it was another productive month:

And a piece I didn't photo for the 12" Mini Club, two Cross Stitch pieces I can't show as they may be part of a swap, and some blocks preparing for the Red/White/Blue Blog Hop. Hey - it was a 5 week month!
Be sure to see what others have created for NewFo over at Barbara's Cat Patches.
"Sweet May hath come to love us,
Flowers, trees, their blossoms don;
And through the blue heavens above us
The very clouds move on."
