May NewFOs

 I'm playing again this month.......I am glad I decided to keep it simple this month since we were gone for part of it.  I managed to hit most of my goals.

    My official New FO for May is the Buzz Saw quilt.  All the units are sewn, and about a third of them are joined into blocks.  No new photo as my camera died today!  But you get the idea.

Unofficial New FOs.......are the string snack mats.
All the narrow strings and slivers from the Buzz Saw blocks were used to make 4 snack mats---9"  by 12".   Oops....they are completed FOs!   But I think that counts.

  Second unofficial NewFO.....I started a class at Craftsy --- Art Quilt Backgrounds: Beyond Log Cabins.  I managed to squeeze in 3 lessons and have several more to view.  The first 3 covered fabric selections, and wonky piecing of the log cabins.  I'm looking forward to the rest of the topics, especially the screen printing technique and surface designs.

June plans:  Once again,  I am keeping it very simple for this next month.

  • Get the Buzz Saw blocks joined.
  • Quilt, quilt, least one of the tops in the pile.
  • Pin baste the water color string quilt.
  • Work on string blocks for Faceted Jewels II.
  • Finish up the art quilt class on Craftsy.
Linking to Cat Patches for this month's Linky Party.   Be sure to check out all the links and see what is going on.  
Happy stitching.

I do love your Buzz Saw Quilt - the pattern and the colors! Your snack mats are great - and they are giving me some ideas. I'm having trouble keeping up with my Craftsy classes - I used to watch while I was on treadmill and am now walking outside. Good Luc with your new goals. ~Jeanne

It looks like you are setting fairly reasonable goals, Debbie. I get overwhelmed reading many other blogger's lists.
Those buzz saw blocks look so good!

I love the buzz saw quilt. Beautiful colors.

I've made one like this just no purple, just blues and white. I want to quilt it soon but am stumped on what to do with it. I thought a stipple in the white but not sure about the rest. Yours is looking great! Any ideas on how you will quilt it?

The buzz saw is gorgeous and moving along nicely. I signed up for one of the free classes since I'm not sure that I'll actually pay attention LOL, how do you like yours?

What a beautiful buzz saw project! And kudos for turning scraps into the pretty placemats. :D

Heidi said...

Tami C said...

Wow! Another great idea. I like your beautiful buss saw quilt. I think I'll have to do one of those and I like your place mats too!
