Design Wall Monday - May 16th

This is what was on my design wall last night. This is UFO #9 which the beginning of the month was just strips left over from a charity quilt I made over a year ago. As usual when I don't use a specific pattern I way over cut.....


The tropical fabric was all donated and I added the gold and the blue to it. Once quilted this will be a hospice donation quilt.

For Judy L's UFO challenge I am calling this completed for May's challenge since I won't be able to do any machine quilting due to hand surgery for at least another month.

I did want to show you a pictures of a donation quilt made out of a kit I cut using Mary Johnson's (of heartstrings group) easy strippy quilt. The top was made by Betty, quilted by Julia and bound by Kathy V. Nice job ladies, this quilt will ultimately go to our local hospital for a sick child.


One last thing when I typed the date this morning I realized it is the 16th of May. This would have been my parents 59th Wedding Anniversary. So Happy Anniversary MOM and DAD, I still miss you both very much.

The strippy quilt is great. Simple patterns with the right fabric can really make a statement. Nice job.

I love both quilts! I like the strippy quilt but I have a hard time cutting the strips without wobbles in them.

I love that strippie quilt pattern--made one for a 1 year old nephew's birthday last year and put his initials on it. So simple and cute. Nice donation quilts!

Kathie, great that you finished May's UFO. You'll be quilting before you know it. The planes on the row quilt are really cute. Our loved ones never leave our heart. Sandi

Love the planes - too cute.

I tend to over cut because I like a scrappy mix but I often cut for Mom and always ask her does she want me to cut just enough to get her started or make sure she doesn't have to do any cutting - she always has leftovers when she's done too!
