Closing Out May

I had a simple list for May so I could enjoy May For Me - my birthday month.  First up was my Let's Book It project - the simple one block wonder.  It was also used for my second list item - Slow Stitching Sunday.  I did the dreaded needleturn applique and the quick large stitch quilting.

To celebrate May For Me I took part in the SewMaMaSew and held a week giveaway - having you all celebrate my month really was a pleasure.  And I had the pleasure of being a guest blogger for Hands to Help

The third and last thing on my list was RSC15 - I made all my RSC15 GREEN blocks thru the month.  I still have a LOT of green!!

I had the pleasure of fitting in a random act of kindness and did up a doll quilt with little dolly for a surprise gift for a friend.

And I finished the Batik 'Island Chain' quilt.  A lot of straight line quilting - very time consuming but such a great affect.

With a simple month, I realized I needed to some clearing out.  Remember the dumped fabrics?  Well they got sorted into 4 piles of possibilites.

The greens and yellow went into a simiple log cabin baby quilt and I added some giraffes from a scrap I had tucked away.

They are easier to see here.  I used a simple 'ribbon' quilting across the quilt and raw-edge stitched around the giraffes and then echoed .

The dark plaids and wovens went into a bow tie quilt.  I have the first border on here - actually I have the outer border on it now too, but it is huge and hard to display.  I am going to send this to a long armer on Tuesday.

The other two quilts - one is at the binding stage and one is at the row assembly stage.

I had a grand May and look forward to June - Middle of the Year.

Sewingly yours,
