I had hoped to get this posted in time to join the link for May with the A Lovely Year of Finishes. Jo suggested it as a way of keeping track of WIPs, and I like the idea of one focused goal for the month.
So, even though it won’t qualify me for any prizes, here’s my one goal for May: eat more cake.
Oh, wait, that’s not a quilty goal. Hmmm, let’s try this again.
Finish February’s do.Good Stitches quilt.
Ok, that’s better. I asked the wonderful ladies of Promise group to make me 16″ square HST triangle blocks, using orange as the ‘background’ and blue, gray, and green as the foreground.
I think some kid is going to love this quilt. I love this quilt, and some days I could almost qualify as a kid. I’ve been watching a quilting class on Craftsy, and really, really want to try spirals, ala Angela Walters. I think this is going to be the perfect quilt to try it on. A.) its on the smaller side (for me lately anyway) and B.) with all that busyness, no one will see any imperfections. 😀 Win, win.
I’ve also decided to give Aurifil another chance. I ran across an article in American Quilter, that said I was using the wrong size needle for 50wt thread. So we’ll see if it changes my mind.
Speaking of Jo, we’re participating in the Friendship Supernova Quilt along together. I’m really, really, really excited about this. Turns out we have nearly identical fabric tastes, and I’m going to finally get to do a rainbow quilt! It won’t be the last one either…I’ve had another rainbow idea floating around in my head for awhile now. Someday, Someday….
