OMG – May 2022 Finishes and June 2022 Goals

Greetings from lovely South Texas! Life is good, but only because we stay home away from the grocery store and gas stations and the news! I have been working diligently in finish all my UFOs. This last month I finished the following quilts. I am not in a hurry to finish everything on a time schedule, but am ready to establish goals. I enjoy posting on each Tuesday with Linda for weekly accomplishments.

A new border border for this quilt. Previous one was a plain white border. This one makes the quilt really pop!
Designed this quilt on EQ8 about 3 years ago – So happy with the outcome – based on an Antique Quilt
Stars Around the Garden – Great Designer and pattern to work with!

I have also finished preparing the new appllique projects I will be working on. Next step is to finish selecting the fabrics and cutting out the pieces! These are my OMG for June – hopefully I will have all of them started on. Lily will take some time (long time) to finish, In the Garden is not a difficult one and the 24 blocks that Jaydee and I will be working on together will take some time, but they are small blocks – 6”. I appliqué in the evening and piece quilts during the day.

I will be working on a Wedding Ring quilt this month. It would be great if I can finish it, but I also need to do some long arm quilting. It will be a short month so I will see how I do. This is a practice block I made years ago before making my first Wedding Ring quilt. The quilt was gifted to a friend.

I will use either Marti Michell templates of Shar Jorgenson’s templates to make the new Wedding Ring Quilt. I am THINKING of using French General fabrics for the quilt.

Have a great June and see all in July on OMG

  1. Hi Nanette, Such lovely projects. I have that French General bundle too and am waiting for just the pattern to use it with. Its old world charm would be ideal for a Wedding ring quilt I think.

  2. Great looking border on the Bats & Boos quilt – two thumbs up from me! Love the red, white, and blue Double Wedding Ring as well – will your French General colors be similar?
