This month's OMG is to finish the Winter Quilt Along project. That happened last Friday.

Started November 11, 2019
Finished April 24, 2020
I'm really happy with how it came out. Thank you Alycia for a very fun and easy quilt along. Both the red and blue fabrics are left overs from other quilts. The binding is the same blue as the stripes. There's about a fat quarter left of the blue and just over a half yard of the red. The backing is left overs from backing two other quilts.
The white print is left over from Twinkle Stars and the blue check from Vintage Dresses. I suppose you could call this one Leftovers, but I went simple and just named it Stripes. This quilt will be donated to the Quilts of Valor program once it's washed.
The second milestone is that the Mosaic Mystery quilt is now a finished flimsy.

I'm pretty happy with how it came out. I only wish the butterfly print border was just a bit wider, but there wasn't that much of the print left over. Next up is to finish the backing and then do the dreaded thread clean up of both before shipping it out for quilting. So this one is likely a June finish.
So a good week on the finishing front. I'm still behind for the year and it's not likely I'll catch up. The goal is still to finish at least eight quilts this year. I'm a quarter of the way there and we are almost a third of the way through the year. The next three quilts on the list just need borders and backings, so hopefully those will go more quickly.
