Updates on Sewing Up My Fabric!

Since I originally posted my description of this blog, I have somewhat erred from my intention. I have actually bought much more fabric than I had but ................. in my defense, I got the solids at 50% off and the quilt shop fabric at 75% off, so that doesn't count, right? LOL

Another Finish - April OMG - better late than never!

April OMG - One Monthly Goal
Here is a link to my original April goal.

I didn't have too much to do, just cut and sew the sashing and border and quilt it but I just didn't make the binding in time.  To me, it isn't finished if it isn't bound!

Some close up of quilting

A look at the backing.

Thanks for looking!

OMG for May - I finished in time - just barely!

I wasn't sure I was going to make this one either but I managed to get it done in the nick of time!
Here is a link to my May OMG plans.

close up of quilting - I used one of the flower motifs in Lori Kennedy's FMQ book for all of the blocks.

I used a ruler that I have had for a while but never had used.  It was just the right size for the plain outer borders.

I used my latest technique for pinwheels.  I like the square quilting in there.

I finished off with a fabric bowl.  I had a lot of little strips of fabric left over.  So glad I got that used up.

I am linking up with Patty at Elm Street Quilts for the May One Monthly Goal.  Click here to see what others have done this month!

OMG - One Monthly Goal for May

OMG for May

These blocks were from a 2011 Saturday Sampler at my LQS.
  1. I still need to make the December block. (I bought the finishing kit and managed to get all the pieces cut last week!) 
  2. I need to make (13) 12" alternate blocks.
  3. The outer border has pinwheel blocks all around it which I still need to make.
  4.  Quilt 
  5.  Bind
Just a Little Side Note
I have submitted an OMG project every month this year and have finished them all, but somehow at the end of the month, I still have the binding left!  
I have only been able to submit one this year so far.  
Maybe this month will be different.
At least I am getting one a month finished and bound even if I don't make the deadline!
That's what I am telling myself anyway!

Good luck to every on finishing their projects this month!
