May [review]

I can't believe it's 1st of June already. May was so busy that I'm looking forward to a few quiet weeks in June (before it gets busy again at the end of the month).

I finished four quilts!
Arabella Hexagon Quilt

Thread Along Quilt

Neon Stained

Three Peaks
I started a lap quilt and a mini quilt and pieced the quilt from the bee blocks I received

Lap quilt for my Great Aunt ready to quilt and applique

Mini Medallion

All of my bee blocks

I made a scrappy camera case for my Mum

This month, unlike last month, I managed to get some sampler blocks done, though none for my Dear Jane quilt.

But it did include a Lucky Star block


And last thing yesterday, just before my daughter's final assault on Mount Cry, I finished my two bee blocks for this month! I surprised myself by really enjoying piecing these wonky stars.

As for Mia, she was christened last weekend and has learned how to laugh!

Not bad for a month. I find that if I know in my head exactly what I want to do the next time Mia let's me sew, I achieve a lot more, so I'm already planning June sewing. Hopefully it will involve a few more finishes for the second quarter of the Finish Along, and some more sampler blocks. And I pulled some gorgeous fabrics from my stash on Friday that I'm itching to use for something!

Linking up with Fresh Sewing Day!
