DrEAMi! #51

I know it's May 1, and DrEAMi is usually the last Saturday of the month, but I didn't realize this until part way through this past week, that the last Saturday was actually April 24! Yikes. I very nearly forgot about it this morning, but here we are! Don't worry, there will be the regular DrEAMi, on May 29.

But chase a new quilt project? You're on!
Last month we had this DrEAMi from Susan at Granny Smith's Quilting:
What she calls a hero photo. Isn't it spectacular? It was a true DrEAMi, in that it wouldn't let her get on with anything else until she'd made the entire thing, down to the binding!

Another beautifully staged DrEAMi was this unplanned gorgeous quilt of Allison's at New Every Morning:

And I just have to add in one more, Kathleen's (Kathleen McMusing) hero shot of her 'A Whale's Tale' placemats, that also gripped her and wouldn't let her go until they were done and in use on her table. 

There's a free pattern on Kathleen's site for these, just so ya know. 😜 
Like wow, this is plenty of inspiration right here, forget a party with more! Not to worry, there's always time for a party and room for more inspiration, so get ready to rock. Link up below.

Please remember this is NOT an in-progress linky, but a linkup for finished projects, aka squirrels, that tempt us and make us Drop Everything And Make It! Like right now!

My own this past month were the two cushion covers I made for two ladies who work in two different grocery stores in my town, one, a neighbour, the other, one of my yoga students. Both have now been delivered. Both ladies got a little goosebumpy with emotion, so I think they will be much-loved in their new homes. Here is one of them. I'll link the post up below.

  1. True friends and true love, perfect. Have a nice weekend!

  2. I’m sure glad I’m not the only one that thought today was still April. Where did the time go this month?

  3. April seems to have gone by in a blur! It's always fun to see what captivates our attention. Thanks for hosting this fun linkup! :)

  4. Love the photo of the cushion with the azalea.

  5. I was going to gather all my April squirrels into a post, and then all of a sudden April became May! That month flew by!

  6. To show you where my mind was at, it was 9:30 this morning before it dawned on me that it was Sunday, not Monday. I was trying to figure out why some of the blog posts were showing up a day late. That's me, a day late and a dollar short. Anyway, I didn't finish anything this month, DrEAmi or not.

  7. MMMQuilts, I want to say it takes a big person to present and applaud the work of other artists on your on site. Seeing those DrEAMi quilts is so much fun and inspiring. Found some wonderful blogs to follow through your posts. Liz in Houston
