One Monthly Goal – May 2018

Happy Wednesday!

Oh my goodness its hard to believe its May already!

I’m sure picking a random project for my OMG would be best and more challenging but I prefer to consult my calendar before making a selection. May will be a travel month for us so I needed to be realistic with my choice.

The winner : My black batik “Trip Around the World” quilt which I started back in 2015.

OMG – Batik trip around the world

 

One of the blogs I follow Aby Quilts posted a tutorial on April 10, 2018 for her Daffodil table topper. The topper is a simple half square triangle layout very similar to the layout I used for the batik quilt. Aby challenged her readers to make their own topper either in yellow or some other color combination.

I had a few green and brown half square triangles from a previous project that was perfect to use to make this topper. It   was also the perfect opportunity to test my quilting plan for the batik quilt. I hope to get the binding on tomorrow.

I did straight line quilting with one inch intervals on the background fabric and stitched in the ditch on the print fabric. I need to work on my starts and stops in the center section – other than that I’m OK with the quilt plan.

Linking up with Patty at Elm Street Quilts for One Monthly Goal!

Until next time Happy Sewing and Quilting!
