AYOLF May goal

Modern Stitching Bee top

So far this year, the monthly goal setting for A Year Of Lovely Finishes has been very helpful for me actually getting things finished. I figured out that picking a FAL goal will also keep me moving along with that list too.

So this month my goal is to finish this thrift - also known more as the economy block - quilt. Many of the blocks were made for me by my friends in the Modern Stitching Bee but I got stuck when I was unsure if I should change the edge rows I had made. I'm over that, they are staying as they are and I am going to get a nice back made and put it on the long arm to quilt.


In case you were wondering, we had some snow last night, seriously. Oh well, all the more reason to quilt today and no chance to clean up the back garden. I am off to link up with the AYOLF group and to check out what others are up to this month.

Best,

Leanne

Love how your economy blocks use a variety of low volume fabrics! Really adds nice depth to this quilt top.

We had a flurry of snow that didn't stay long thank goodness. This is one of my three favourite blocks.

Barb said...

Very worthy of becoming a finished quilt. Bah, humbug, about your snow. Glad it will melt soon!

Svetlana said...

Nicely done! I like the background blocks you've used to hold those varied economy blocks together.

Love your combination of color, light prints and neutrals! Very fun

I so love your take on the economy block quilt. It nicely highlights each fussy cut without overwhelming the eye. Gorgeous design, L.

It's lovely and well done on finishing something - I should finish some of my older W IP...one day

Sarah said...

Can't wait to see your finished quilt.

Glad you left those borders. I didn't unpick any of my Lolly quilt after your advice, and I'm glad I left it. (So it's not perfect, I reasoned, it is the best that I could do and I'll just go forward.) It will be fun to see this quilted up!

Emily Carnes said...

Vera said...

It's beautiful! We had snow last night too (in NL) and most of today too. It's still on the ground. Seriously, when is winter going to go away?
