For May, my OMG is to stitch these string blocks into a quilt. I need 120 of the blocks, and will have to sew the final 20 of them first. Each component block measures 6.5” (unfinished). Four will be sewn together to make a 12” (finished) star. Then they’ll be set 5 across by six down for a final quilt that measures 60x72”.
My goal is to not only finish the blocks (already in progress) and top, but to get it quilted and bound by month-end. I do have one quilt to finish up for Hands2Help before I get to this, and we are tentatively planning a weeklong trip to Colorado later this month to visit family. We’ll see how that goes. But either way, it’s totally do-able.
My April OMG of finishing the Good Fortune top was accomplished, and today I basted the top. I’ve had lots of help this week in the sewing room from Darla. Here she is, helping me sew some of the string blocks.
And she was invaluable in helping me pin baste Good Fortune, as you can see.
With her help, the quilt did not fly away. And she kindly moved her paws when I needed to baste around her. What more could I ask?
