Setting some goals for May

It's May! Time is flying by! It is time to set some goals for May. I am looking forward to quilting the City Bank quilt. 
(pattern name from the book City Quilts...the quilt will be named later)
At the International Quilt Festival in Chicago, I purchased the foot and several rulers to learn FMQ with rulers on my domestic machine! There was a bit of a faux pas as I purchased a high shank foot/rulers
but my machine is actually a low shank. Before purchasing, I did ask the Janome dealer (I have an Elna which is now owned by Janome) to verify the shank and I unfortunately, received incorrect information. Since I wasn't entirely sure, I had asked the store if I could return it if it proved different. They were very accommodating, and I am happy to say I received the new foot/rulers today! I'm very excited to get started! 
So my goal for May is to quilt and bind this quilt!
One of my nieces, also due in June expecting her 2nd baby, asked me to make  a baby quilt for her and the baby. The theme for the baby's room is butterflies with the colors of teal and purple. 
My goal for May will be to start making butterfly blocks and piecing this quilt. 
I have little planned for this quilt. I have done some searching for butterfly blocks and I have started collecting fabrics. I hope this isn't too hefty a goal as school is quite busy as the school year draws to a close. 
Summer is just around the corner!
I will continue to keep up with the RSC and The Milky Way QAL. 
May's color is green!
I'm linking my goals up at OMG-May Link-up @ Elm Street Quilts.

  1. Hello Dawn, Your city bank quilt is striking in it's simplicity. I agree the months are flying by. I am not getting nearly enough done for things that need to get done. Now garden season is here so that means another activity to fit in. HELP! I'm sure you feel like I do on some days..... I just want to stay home and sew. But there are always things to do , places to go. Life is busy! Janita
