May Monthly Goal Complete

Let's hear it for a solid May finish!
 

Time in the Attic finished up at 76x64.
I used the Nine-Patch Hour Glass pattern from
Missouri Star Quilt Company's Block magazine
but you can also find the tutorial here.


The fabric line used in this quilt is General Store 
by Nancy Gere for Windham Fabrics.  I was able
to get a good deal on not only the jelly roll used
in this quilt but also on a layer cake so I am on
the hunt for another idea with these fabrics.
My preference is to build my own collection but
I definitely like the ease of pre-cuts once in a while.


By coincidence, I had a small yardage amount
of the black in this line--just enough for a slim
border and the binding.  Thank you, Mr. Stash!


I haven't had time for a full photo-shoot on Attic
(also on today's to-do list!) but I wanted to show
the extra pieces being put to use in the backing.

This quilt went together very well, and quickly.
Not to mention it was just great for some quilty
fun so if you're needing one of those projects
I definitely recommend it.  

I'm not sure I recommend my other May
project all that much.  Bear with me a little
here because the fabrics at least are much
prettier in person...


The lattice idea is one I've been wanting to try out
for some time but I came to realize it's just not
for me. So I broke it up into three baby quilts
and will be donating them to charity soon.


Fabrics from Mr. Stash made do for the borders;
all three are quilted up and getting their bindings
finished up today.  I guess there's a chance that
may spill over into tomorrow, at the latest, but
 they'll absolutely qualify for May finishes as well.  


Here is a close-up of the quilting and the colors.
Much prettier in this pic.

And that's it for me for May!
Not too shabby:
one large quilt and three baby ones finished!

Check back with me next Tuesday when I share some
exciting news on a previous baby quilt!

Happy quilting!

Nice works!! That "Time in the Attic" is lovely--
And so nice that you could make 3 baby quilts out of the lattice design...nice save for you!!
I have quite a few projects that I found "were not for me" too. I need to take them out and re-assess--but somehow I keep putting it off ;(((

I love the Time in the Attic. The fabrics are so pretty together. It was a great idea to break up the lattice blocks into three donation quilts.

I love Time in the Attic! Lattice is something I've wanted to do for a long time too. The fabrics are beautiful.

Well done!! I love your Attic, very pretty. The baby quits are lovely too.

Time in the Attic is wonderful! This is why I quilt, two simple blocks combined to make a great quilt - what could be better. The lattice quilt with the red borders looks great (maybe you should keep that one, hehehe).
