So maybe my April UFO didn't get finished until May 1. The main thing is it is finished.

 Simple meander quilting. Machine stitched both sides of the binding. I may regret the all white quilt back. Oh well.

May's UFO Challenge is #9 on my list, the Christmas Ornament wall hanging. I made one years (and years and years) ago in a class. There were enough scraps to make a second wall hanging.

The first one:

The stuff for the second one:

I thought I had already started putting the top together. I thought all the fabric was together. I thought wrong. This version was supposed to have a black background. I think I used the fabric in my Scooch Over 2 quilt. The off white fairy frost doesn't have enough contrast. Unless I can find a good back ground fabric in the next week I may trade out this UFO for another...with 16 unquilted tops and 7 project in process I think I'll be able to find a replacement.

This afternoon I finished another quilt.

I started quilting it last night...lots of in the ditch with my walking foot. Then a little bit of FMQ around the dinosaur at the top and machine stitching both sides of the bind down. Quick finish. The size is 30 x 39 inches. It will be donated to the local Quilts for Kids.

The pile on the little table next to my sewing space is getting smaller but still has a ways to go.

Have you heard Google Feedburner is going away. 😭 I follow most of my blogs via email/Feedburner so I'm really not happy. I like to read my email via my phone, sitting on the couch, while I have my morning coffee and Bella pretends to be a lap kitty. I've been slowing adding the blogs I follow to my side bar and unsubscribing from the emails. Grrrr. On the bright side maybe I'll comment more.

You’ve been busy! I love that ornament quilt and the dinosaur one is super cute too.

Finished is always good news—no matter the original goal! There’s always a quilt in the queue around here too. Best luck with your planned steps.
I follow you on Bloglovin, along with most other blogs I read, only get emails from a few. I need to post something on my blog about Feedburner too.

You have been so busy. And I still so love the Christmas ornaments wall hanging. When my niece was young, she would have totally loved the quilt at the bottom.

OOh, I love the Christmas quilt, too.
