Just 3 for May!

Setting a quilty goals for the month was really helpful in getting some of the projects done.  I'll start with my new goals and then updates on the projects that I wanted to finally finish. 

My three goals for May are:

1.  Finish my Oh My Stars quilt.  As you can see, most of the blocks are done, and just have to be sewn together, as well as adding the sashing and border.  I haven't decided how to quilt it, but I'll be happy if the top is finally done!

2.  Finish the Quartered Log Cabin quilt.  I was the Queen bee for 2012 Modern Block Swap in November, and my bee-mates made such amazing blocks for me, with the exception of one person who never returned the block.  Hate when that happens. :(  The quilt will be a wallhanging for my living room, and the layout will be 5 X 3 blocks, so I have to make 2 more blocks to finish this wallhanging.  I plan to quilt this wallhanging and I hope to do so by the end of May.

3.  Finish the Retro Flower quilt.  I hope to finish this quilt within the timeframe of the quilt along.  At first, I was going to make only 12 blocks, but once I started, decided to make 16.  Unfortunately, I only cut enough fabric for 12 blocks, so I have to make the remaining 4.  I still haven't figured out how to quilt it, but like the Oh My Stars quilt, I'll just be happy if the top is done. 

Update for April's goals:

My three goals were to:
a) finish binding 3 wallhangings
b) finish my niece's quilt before she turned 1 (within a week of the original post)
c) making my sister's Braided Star quilt

The biggest accomplishment was finishing Selah's quilt just in time for her birthday!  I was so happy and she liked it a lot, or at least her mother said so. :)  I also finished the wallhangings and either displayed them or finally gave them to their intended recipients.  The only goal I didn't achieve was the Braided Star quilt, but my sister was fine with it because I decided to dye some fabric for the quilt in her favorite colors.  So overall, a successful month! 

Thanks Tracy Jay for setting this linky party up!  My WIP pile is slowly going down!
