A Lovely Year of Finishes - Not Complete

Well it is the end of the month again and this month has just been to busy and I did not make my goal this month.   I have all the pieces cut out but that is about as far as I got, what a total bummer.  So I guess I will share with you the bit I have done over the last week, I shared on Instagram but not here yet. 

So here is how the May Lovely Year of Finishes looks, not complete.

I pieced the sections for week 3 of the Art Quilt, Girl in the Wind that I am doing.  This is part of my Finish Along Qtr 2 goals so hopefully this will be done by the end of next month.

My sewing machine cover which is part of my Library Project Goals is cut and and I have the background attached to the blocks just need to finish sewing the rows and finish it off.

I am working on another bag for my cousin, the last one was a bit small for her wallet.  I am just designing it as I go along.  I started with just a tracing of her wallet.  I have fused batting to the back of the pieces and just need to quilt and finish the final assembly.

I also sketched up my entry for the Michael Miller Challenge for the Modern Quilt Guild.  Here is a peek.  Hopefully will start piecing in the next few weeks.

I took my Craftys BOM 2012 off the frame yesterday so I need to square that up and make some binding.  Here is  a peek at the back.  I will share more once the binding is on.

No progress on my May Lucky Star block, I did print the paper pieces but that is about it.  

I also got a start on my Ruby Red Dot blocks by tracing the pieces onto freezer paper, ironing the fabric and cutting out the shapes.  Now I just need to  starch the edges under and I will be ready to assembly the blocks. 

Wow, I do have a bit started just not many finishes.  I really need to focus so I can start checking things off.  Hopefully after this week is finished I can get back into the swing of completing projects.  

Thank you for stopping by and visiting.
