May - 2013 The Year of the Finished Project



It's the first Thursday in May, time to fess up to what did and didn't get done in my quest to finish up a few quilt projects.  I'm linking up with our lovely hostess Lynn over at Never to Hot to Stitch.  

My list of goals for April was pretty ambitious.  How did it work out?  


April 
1. Evening Star

2 The Sofa Quilt

Sew binding on
Hand stitch binding to back
3.  OSU Quilt
Add borders Done
Make backing Done

4.  Sweet Treats
Assemble blocks and sashing Done
Add borders Done
Make Backing Done

5.  Calico Cats
Make 8  blocks 4 done
Assemble blocks and sashing
Add borders
Make backing

Here's a visual of last month's progress.  


So two finished tops and one more row added to Calico Cats.  Really not a bad month.  I'll have to step it up in May as I need to finish the above three, plus get the binding on two others.

A very ambitious list.  I'm sure 1 through 4 are doable, but number 5 is going to be a stretch.  Wish me luck!

  7. I found you thru Never too hot to stitch blog. You did great on you sewing this month. The OSU quilt is that Oklahoma State? I grew up in Norman but for the past 30 years live in Australia.
