The UFO project that I’ll be working on for May is my Hot Air Balloon Mini Quilt. This will be my fifth finish for the year as part of my Hello 2016, Goodbye UFO’s challenge. If you remember, last year I did a quilt along with free instructions to make this cute little mini quilt. Here it is as I left it in October:
I had been thinking about making this into a wall hanging for my granddaughter, Amelia. That idea has stuck, so I’ve personalized it with her name and I switched out the black/gray flying geese for a couple of friendship stars. It looks much more like Amelia!
Now I need to baste it and play with some quilting designs before I add the binding. Hopefully all of this will get done before we see her in 10 days! Oh, the pressure we put on ourselves!
So far, there are 30 finished projects that have been added to the link up for April. You still have 3 more days to enter, so don’t delay! Two winners will be chosen at random on May 8.
Have you decided what your UFO project will be for May? I was so glad to see this mini quilt was the number that was picked for me by All People Quilt for their UFO Challenge. They randomly choose a number between 1 and 12 each month and whatever corresponds to that number on my list is my project for the month. That’s how I determine what I’ll be working on. It makes it a little bit mysterious and fun.
Well I’d better get busy quilting! Have a great day!
