It is May! That means the showers should be over and we should finally get our flowers. In the case of our family it means that it is time to plant our fledgling seedlings and hopefully get some fruits and veggies!
It also means that it is time to start setting goals again. If this is your first time joining us for A Lovely Year of Finishes check out the info page here or over at my partner in crime’s (Shanna) blog. We also have a great FAQ page as well to answer all your questions.
If you are a repeat finisher, pick a finish and get linked up! Here is my finish for the Month of May:
Those of you who have followed my blog for awhile might remember my Swoon quilt made with the gorgeous Half Moon Modern fabrics. Well I have decided that I am going to go for the standard sized swoon instead of a king sized one, I just feel my husband needs something a little more manly on the bed at night (I have his quilt in the works too but that will wait for a different month!). So my goal is to finish the last 2 blocks and assemble the entire top. I am excited to cross this one off the “finish top” list and add it to the “needs to be quilted” list. Make sure you head over to Fiber of All Sorts and check out Shanna’s planned finish for May.
As always, we have some amazing prizes offered by our fantastic sponsors, please make sure you take the time to visit each one and give them a little love. This challenge wouldn’t be near as much fun without them!
Remember, to be eligible for prizes you must link up to the party and the end of month party showing off your finish. We have a mid-month party too but it is not required, more for fun and cheering each other on!

1. Choice of $15 or 2 charm packs from Stitch n’ Giggles
2. Mini Dresden Flowers Pattern and Pieces donated from Paper Pieces

OOO! very pretty blocks.
Very fun blocks!!!!!! I agree, can’t wait to see this quilt! It looks lovely, Melissa!
My March finish-to-be has become my May finish. Perhaps it will be even sweeter when I see that little house hanging on my wall, since it’s taken longer than anticipated? Thanks, as always, for the motivation and encouragement.
I just discovered your blog – and your monthly challenge – by reading the blog of one of your participants. This is just what I needed – something to help me hold myself accountable. So I’ve joined for the first time. I sure hope I did it right!
I love all those pretty quilts but I can’t link up… never quilted before 🙁
But tx for all the Eye Candies!!!
Love your Swoon Blocks!
Good luck! I shall link up at the weekend 🙂
still need my binding done for the great quilt.
Good luck on your May goal! It is a beauty already 🙂 Finally linked up.
Hi! I love this concept! I have a question though, if I missed the first link-up, can I add to the mid-check link-up and final for the month anyways? I don’t mind not getting into the drawing. I just want the pressure to finish something!!
Love your swoon! Can’t wait to see it finished 😀
