May Goals

I have a few things I want to accomplish this month. The most pressing is my guild challenge quilt that is due to be turned in on Monday. I heard today that the deadline may have been relaxed, but I would just like to be done and not worry about it. I'll be working furiously on it this weekend!

My OMG plan is to get this project finished.
 I got the spool blocks put together at quilt camp.
I plan to donate the finished quilt, so I think it needs a border to make it a bit larger. 

(Sorry for the blurry photo!)
I found this denim printed quilt fabric in my stash--I think it will be okay for the borders....

....and I think I have more than enough binding pieces to make a fun scrappy binding. 
This was the Primitive Garden block I finished for the April Facebook SAL, so I am working on the next block (the rake). Actually, we had a free month, so I don't need to stress myself out if I don't get it done in May--I'm already ahead!

  12. Love your spools piece, have fun adding the borders and quilting it. I have that PG pattern and have gathered some of the wools in my colours but have yet to start stitching it. Enjoy the process, it looks lovely.
