ALYOF - May Goals

It you haven't signed up for my giveaway you can find it HERE.

It is May, how did that happen.  Well it is time to set my goals for A Lovely Year Of Finish for May.  I have decided that my big goal for May will be to get the memory quilt shirts cut.  I have put it off long enough. By the time I finish it will be so hot they won't need quilts.  If you've not read before I'm doing four memory quilts for a friend and her children.  They suddenly lost their husband/father in December, and I thought it would be nice for them to have a keepsake.  What I wasn't prepared for was my procrastination at actually cutting the shirts.  But it has to be done and this is the month they get chopped.

I also want to get more quilts finished.  I have bought the ruler base for my Avante and a couple of rulers, so I want to experiment with those.  I have several quilts to use for practice, beginning with my Star Crossed quilt, ok it is Tucker's quilt.  I made it for his dog bed that stays under my long arm machine. He is such a faithful quilt buddy, I wanted him to have a quilt on his little bed.

And my last goal for the month is to get another quilt cut.  I really need to do two or three, but I want to get my PB&J blocks quilt cut out.  It should be easy to cut and easy to piece so I want to get some work done on it.  Right now it is just a bundle of fabric I purchased, but I love it and want to play with it soon.

May is going to be a busy month, but I have a three day weekend at the end, so hopefully everything will get done, and maybe even a little more. I am linking up with Shanna of Fiber of All Sorts and Melissa of BitterSweet Designs.

  1. Good luck with your May goals. Tucker's quilt looks great and as a faithful companion he definitely deserves the best. I must set my goals for May but the difficulty is picking which projects to prioritize.


I love hearing from you!!! Thank you for taking the time to leave me a comment!!!!!
