A Lovely Year of Finishes - May Goal

Remember these blocks I was going to turn into my April's A Lovely Year of Finishes wall hanging?

 Well, here is how much I worked on that project....

Yep...That is the sound of crickets chirping in the background!

So for the month of May, rather than continue this negative trend, I'm changing my month's goal to a new project (because obviously I have no desire to work on that one yet!).  My goal is to not only sew up a new tablecloth for my little kitchenette table but I thought I would take some photos of the process and put together a tutorial to share with all of you. 

Here's the fabric I plan on using. It will go great with my turquoise and tangerine dishes!


There are a number of great projects being worked on this month.  You can check them all out here at Bittersweet Designs

Hope I can get back to finding the enthusiasm to finish up some older projects.  I was doing so well the first few months of the year!

I will be sharing this post with the following linky parties. Linky Tuesday at Freemotion by the River,   Let's Bee Social at Sew Fresh Quilts, and Fabric Tuesday at Quilt Story.  Be sure and check out these blogs for even more quilty inspiration.

Good idea to set that first one aside for awhile. Besides, your kitchen needs a new tablecloth to set off those colorful dishes!

I hadn't seen your houses. They are adorable - is there a pattern for them. I'm not good at creating applique patterns. I can do SOME pieced patterns and not applique. Some times it is wonderful to go to another project and even start something new. I have a quilt that has been unfinished in my attic for over 25 years. It just may be a quilt that is meant not to be finished.

I love those polka dots! That will look great. I love seeing all your turquoise and tangerine.
