Mid May

The May Sleep At Home Retreat at The Cottage was last week. The machines were humming as we worked on various projects. First on my list was the latest Whatnots quilt called "Bountiful". This is one of my favorites of Kim Diehl's patterns.

Needed to keep up to date with the Circa 2016 blocks, so those were next.

Connie and I are making extra Farm Girl Vintage blocks for our QCU quilts. Last week I made the pumpkin and the tea kettle.

Yesterday I started the hand stitching for the binding on my General Jack quilt.

I probably did only half a dozen stitches when I got this helper on my lap.

General Jack is calling my name--love it!
Great "helper". : )

(I don't know if this showed up or not. If it did, just delete one of them)

Your work is lovely, as always.

I am such a sucker for basket quilts and that one is darling. I'm a sucker for stars too.

Cats, not so much, but yours looks lovely.

Love the all. I am hoping to try to catch up with Circa 2016...... I like the General's quilt. Wish I liked scrappy quilts.

I love your General Jack quilt. The Vintage Farm Girl blocks are really tempting, and yours make them hard to resist. I have my helper on my lap tonight. Everyone besides me is gone, and he's making sure I don't go anywhere.

Looks like you made a lot of progress! I really love General Jack and so nice that you had help binding it!

The star quilt grabbed my attention. Never have seen a star quilt I didn't like. Especially scrappy versions.
