Design Wall Today

My sewing and quilting will slow down considerably this month.  Spring has finally sprung and I will be out in my yard and garden--a lot.  Yay!

Our wild, yet not so wild ducks: Max and Irma, are back and waddling around the back yard. This is the 5th year for them to hang out in our back yard.
Note: that's not trash on the's a sandbox! 😊

I have had this BOM pattern and all the associated fabrics bagged and sitting on my shelf for ummm probably 10 years. Yikes!

...along with about 14 other packaged projects...

 So, my OMG for May will be the first block:
I was so excited when I dug it out of my considerable stash of projects, I have already started . . . just a little.

In addition to that single block, I plan to finish this quilt. You may remember it from earlier posts here and here.

It needs a border and then quilted.

So, I should be able to squeeze in these 2 projects for my OMG for May!

 . . . meanwhile, my garden awaits . . .

Linking up with


  1. I think you have to very doable "may" projects....especially with yard work at hand.

  2. Great outdoor photos! I am facing a lot of yardwork and we plant the garden near the end of May. Great projects to get done for the month!

  3. Love your garden space and your May projects. Bees, vines, and flowers are appropriate for Spring.

  4. Good luck. I love bee projects as well. Can't wait to see your progress.

  5. What a fun block. Thanks for linking up with Elm Street Quilts One Monthly Goal and good luck on your project.

  6. I love both of your May projects, but then I love to see applique. Your new one looks like it will be so much fun! Good luck with your projects this month.

  7. How sweet that your ducks keep coming back. They must feel welcomed and be very happy in your yard.

    I'm impressed that you've chosen two goals for the month. Both are just beautiful. The bees in the first block are too fun and I love the blue you chose for the second quilt.
