A sucessful finish for ALYoF and more...

...I finished the batik quilt and gifted it to Todd and Noreen.
They were packing up the car 
to go to Niagara-on-the-Lake for the weekend.
I just had to take a picture with Noreen's new Mini Cooper...
it's sweet...Noreen was camera shy!!
...and a picture in their back yard.
The quilt back is a green batik with a hint of lavender.
They loved it...I'm now cutting the pieces to make a second quilt.
It is a quick and easy pattern in the February 2009
American Patchwork & Quilting .  

My Hands2Help challenge quilt is also finished and ready to mail.
I used a Bear Country School layer cake and charm pack by Moda.
The quilt measures 48" x 56" .
The lilac bushes are gorgeous this year...

I can't believe I've finished it 3 weeks before I have to mail it.
I have till June 12...I've got time to make another one,
but I have lots of other projects on my 'to do' list...
we would like to be moved back to Canada by the end of the year!!
Still procrastinating...

May's goal for A Lovely Year of Finishes...

I almost forgot to post my May goal for ALYoF....
I've made progress on my batik quilt, the quilting is completed so...
my May goal is have it bound and gifted.
As time permits
I would also like to make some progress on my Hands2Help quilt.
A quilt top flimsy would be good...
having it quilted and bound would be awesome!!
I will be using a Bear Country School layer cake and charm pack by Moda.
All I've done so far is matched a layer cake with a charm pack.
I'm sure I will move a few around.  
I will be using a folded square-in-a square block to make the quilt.
The 2 quilts below are donation quilts...
the one on the right is for the Relay for Life 
held next week in Canton Michigan.
It measures 50" x 60".

The multi colored one is 48" x 54".
I used the folded square-in-a square block to make both quilts.
