I did get some sewing done at a sew in at my local guild and I'll share that later in the month when Sandra has the link up for the Free Fall Quilt Along but I didn't manage to finish my goal for the month. I do have a really good excuse though.
My second grandson arrived one week and a day before his scheduled C section and quilting plans went out the window! I don't have any really good pictures of him yet so you will just have to trust me when I tell you that he is gorgeous! His name is Elisha Luke but they call him Eli for short. If like me, you are unfamiliar with the name it rhymes with Elijah. He weighed 6 lbs 15 ounces and is almost the spitting image of his older brother. Both boys were born with a full head of hair. Gabriel's never fell out.
Back to quilting. My goal for May was to sew the flimsy together for my Circle of Friends Quilt. I did manage to square up the blocks and I put them on the design wall.
I decided that once I sewed the blocks together the circles would be closer together than I would like so I decided to sash them. This is as far as I've got. These are big blocks 15 inches , so I am making the quilt to have 4 rows with 3 blocks each. The sashing and outside borders are 2 inches.
I've decided to push this goal into June and hopefully I'll complete the flimsy this month. It will be a busy one with lots of babysitting as mom recuperates from her C section. Life with a 15 month old and a newborn is wonderful but also tiring!
I'm joining the OMG link up at Elm Street Quilts.
