I was on Quilting is More Fun Than Housework last night, and Cynthia led me to Sew BitterSweet Designs where I found this cool "A Lovely Year of Finishes". Great idea. So, I am going to join in and continue
Here is mine for May:
Lori's Country Cottage.
This is the shop that started me on my quilting journey, way back in 1994. Hey! And they were featured in Better Homes and Gardens' Quilt Sampler in May 2012!! Pretty cool. Also cool is the look of my stitching! It isn't teeny-tiny, but it still looks nice. I did work on it a fair bit this past winter, but did not finish it. The border needs to be quilted, as do some of the background squares in the star blocks, because I think they are too poofy and the quilting lines too far apart. I was thinking of doing a square inside the square I've already quilted and some radiating lines in the triangles, similar to what Joanne is doing in the red triangles on her gorgeous quilt.
Here is the back.

This is what is left of that green fabric! Killed it! And this will get cut up into two 11" strips for another one of Cynthia's Scrap-a-Palooza quilts. Love it.

I am just making it by the deadline (May 1-7) for my first link-up with Melissa's A Lovely Year of Finishes! And I'm heading out for supper with in-laws, but afterwards I am stopping in at Chapters to pick up the May 2014 issue of Quilt Sampler with my gift card! :-)
