Happy Memorial Day Weekend

This has been a month to remember.  I managed to finish everything on my monthly project list.  Well all except this month's UFO.  I only got one block made for it.  The reason being we went camping for a week with my daughter Kelley and her husband Chris.  We had such a great time.  But that took a week out of my sewing time.

I got lots done but I won't bore you with all the photos.

1.  Celebrating Mary Brown.

I love how this block turned out.  

2.  Mrs. Lincoln's Quilt

3.  A Finish

I've had this quilt top put together for quite awhile.  It was a block swap I participated in with quilters from all over the world.  We left to go camping on a Wednesday and I wanted to take a quilt.  So Monday I cut and sewed the backing, sandwiched it and pinned it.  On Tuesday I quilted and bound the quilt.  I did a vertical wavy stitch and used some leftover red binding from a couple of different projects.  I'm really happy with the way it turned out and I used it on the cooler evenings.

4.  Barbara Brackman's Ladies Aid.

 5.  Home for the Holidays BOM

This is the new BOM I signed up for with Connecting Threads.  Each month you get a row to work on.  I love these trees.  However, I forgot how hard it is to work with black fabric.  It's a real pain.

6.  Last but not least  May Mini.

I'll show more next month.  I will however leave you with a few pictures from our camping trip.

Here is our dogs, son in law Chris and Hubby Terry.

We were camping at Algonac State Park and that's the St. Clair River.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope you have a happy and safe Memorial Day.

Hugs, Cathy
