I love the beginning of the month. I write up my list of what I want to accomplish. I have my BOM's, new projects and my APQ UFO of the month. I try and keep the list to 10 projects. More than 10 and I won't get them all done. Less than 10 and I'm running around looking for something to do.
1. This month's APQ UFO for May is #11, Fig Tree Quilts Strawberry Garden. I had 7 months finished. I started working on Month 8. This is the first month that we started putting sections together.
I had to make a few blocks but mostly I made filler blocks. It was really nice to see the quilt taking shape. I've got the blocks that I made for Month 9 up on my design wall. I still have to make a few more blocks and then filler blocks and borders.
2. I got my monthly packet of fabrics and patterns for the Manchester by the Sea by Fig Tree Quilts. The colors in this quilt make me so happy.
The sailboats or Dinghy's as the pattern calls them are so adorable.
3. Bee in My Bonnet Sew Happy Quilt.
One of these cherry blocks will in the center of a Hole in the Barn Door block and the others will stand alone. These blocks are 4 1/2". I only work on these when I need a quick project to work on.
4. My final project is 4" bow tie blocks.
I have a bag of plaids and stripes and when I get a few spare moments I pull out my Electric Accuquilt Cutter and my Bowtie die and cut away. This will be an on- going project. No end in sight. When I get enough for a quilt I'll stop.
I did start working on some of these projects April 29th. The rest I started on May 1st. I feel very accomplished. It's a good feeling.
Tuesday I went to the Urologist for my 6th month check up after having Bladder Cancer Surgery. I go every 3 months and have a cystoscopy. Good news every thing looks good. So back again in August.
I hope you are enjoying some good weather. Our weather has been good one day and rain the next. I'm learning to enjoy the good ones.
Thanks so much for stopping by.
