My goals for May were light. My parents visited until the 14th and I started working a part time job.
1. Teach my mother how to do a star block. Using the Rapid Fire LeMoyne Star
I followed the directions and made the LeMoyne Star.
So I did manage to accomplish this goal.
2. I am going to make a couple of Kanzashi Flowers. I made 4 to be exact. Two large, two small.
Update---I finished piecing the batting and pin basted the quilt together. Now for some FMQ!
For extra measure this month I made this cute little coin purse for my MIL for Mother's Day.
Now for the $100 block. If you see my post Sultry Thursday in May? I had started to make paper pieced letters for the back of the quilt which will be the grand daughter's name. I had a couple of problems at first, but read, and watched a couple of tutorials and banged out 4 in an afternoon. (OK no one ever accused me of being fast.) While working on replacing the hard drive on my computer which meant reinstalling the operating system, all the drivers, anti virus, programs I use all the time I thought I would work on the next letter which was an S.
With sadness we will bid the month of May 2013 adieu. The end of the school year is coming up and the boys will be moving to the summer house.
