Finish Five Challenge Update

Well, here is an update on my progress. I finished the quilting on this pretty blue and white quilt. Now to trim it up and add binding and a label. Those parts should go pretty quickly but I must say I will be hard pressed to finish FIVE by the end of July. Well, to finish any at all will be a win for me! Peg - I really am trying! LOL. Here is a different view of the quilting. I did a swirly meander but you can't see the quilting very well here.

Here is one reason why I have not gotten any further with my challenge. I just HAD to make this bag using Tula Pink's Flutterby charm pack from Moda. I used a Bunny Hill pattern for a jellyroll bag but modified it for the charms. I love it but have to make another because Joy claimed it the minute she saw it. I still haven't seen any pictures that she took in Hawaii or I would put some on my blog here. I will do that soon. She really had a fantastic time!

Susan from Quilty Indulgences just published a great pattern for a baby/toddler bib. You should check it out if you have little ones in your life. Such a great idea! I sure wish I had had something like that when mine were small.

I would love to see Joy's photos also. I've been so busy with unpacking and getting ready for my daughter and granddaughter to come that I haven't really had a lot of time to go out and take photos. Somebody asked, "Can't you just walk out and take great nature shots?" Uhhh... no, not here in Pearl City. Maybe on another less populated island... I wait for Joy's shots.
