I am getting anxious for my quilting group's retreat the first weekend of June. We Zoom regularly and they all laughed today when I told them I was bringing 6 quilts to layer.(We will have space to layer on tables! Yeah!) Four quilt tops are UFOs, so I will be doing my best to catch up on my promise of one per month. I probably won't be quilting them during the retreat. I can't carry my good machine for quilting up and down the stairs at home. My feather weight and I will be doing some work on other projects. Then when I return home, I can settle in to quilting and then binding! Hoping for two in June, July and August. We will see

So...May has been busier than April was! On May 3 I left for our "International Ride". I rode 1706 miles in 7 days without ever leaving Texas. We rode to towns in Texas that have the same names as international cities & countries. We rode to Turkey, Canadian (in the Panhandle, north of I-40), Scotland, Dublin, Italy, New York, Athens, Palestine, & Paris. It was a great week of steady riding, with several days over 300 miles. I'm lack just over 3000 miles getting my 100,000 mile patch from Harley-Davidson! I signed up for the mileage group in 2008, so it's taken me a while. Then my grandson graduated with his Associate's Degree on May 15 & from high school on May 24. Seems backward to me, but... So all this explains my extended absence from the board. I have gone back & counted 8 UFOs for April, and 5 for May. I apologize for falling down on my self-appointed task of keeping count of the group UFO completions.
On May 22, K & I made the back for my Solstice fabric quilt & got it sandwiched. We got to quilt it yesterday & finished it today! Tomorrow we will trim & bind it. I'll have it on my bed in time for the summer Solstice! I'm very excited to have it so close to completion. So, I'll have a UFO for June.

Well done, Conchalea. Solstice by solstice is a terrific accomplishment. Please post a photo when you get a moment.I would love to see your finish and I bet others will too! I have no finishes for May but should have a couple for June.

No more progress in May on UFO's for me. I'm working on the BOOM block exchange!

Default One for May!

I was able to finish stitching down the binding last night at 9:30, it was in the wash this morning and its dry so was able to take a picture this afternoon. After it came out of the drier I noticed that there was a spot on the yellow that I think came from the singer 127 that I quilted it on. I will treat it and give it another wash. I think this is my second oldest at 8 1/2 years in the waiting. On to the next UFO!

Was this one of the Mystery Train patterns by PaintmeJudy here on the board? It looks familiar. It also looks like one of Pat Sloan's patterns. Just curious.
