A Lovely Year of Finishes - May Goal

Time to set my May Goal for A Lovely Year of Finishes and once again I have so many projects to do or want to start that I had a hard time picking what to do for my goal.  Then I decided to be able to keep my goals that I set at the beginning of the year I will make my goal for May to have the top pieced for my Rapid City Quilt that I am making from Modern Patchwork by Elizabeth Hartman for the Library Project Quilt Along.  

Here is my first block for the quilt, only 24 more to go. 

This quilt I am using my scrap bins of black/grey/white with mostly Kona Rich Red for the background. Might throw in a few other red shades to provide more interest but can't really tell till I start working on the blocks. I also will be enlarging the finish size as I want to make it at least a twin size.  

I am sure this month is going to go by in a flash as it is baseball season and both my boys are playing so we spend most nights of the week down at the fields. 
Thank you for stopping by and visiting.

  1. Hi Abby! That's a great block. I love the red with the blacks and greys.

  2. Ooo, wow, look at those spooky eyes and spiders! You have a great mix of scraps here - very effective variations in value. Do you take hand projects along to baseball? When my kids were young I never took handwork out of the house because I was too busy running after the youngest to get anything else done anyway, but it looked like such a good idea!

    1. Thanks Carol for your kind words. Last year I did take hand work mostly sewing the binding onto the back but this year I am not as organized. :) So instead I just cheer them on and I am the loudest! My 10 year old has set next to me after his first game and said that it was not necessary to cheer. So now I am 10 times louder ;)
