May 2014 goal complete for A LOVELY YEAR OF FINISHES

 These are the two Minnesota quilts that I needed to finish the appliqués. One for me and one for my sister. I still need to finish the borders but that will be next month. They are a little intimidating so I am procrastinating. Not sure which one I like best. What do you think? The appliqués are done with suede and ultra suede so they were a lot easier than I thought they would be.

May 2014 goal for A Lovely Year of Finishes

Several years ago I took a class on how to make this Minnesota Quilt so I decided I should make two, one for me and one for my sister. Well I finished most of the blocks but I still need to finish a few of them that need to have the appliqué finished. So that is going to be my goal this month. It is my sister's 50th anniversary at the end of the month so it seems appropriate that I at least work on her blocks and try to start finishing hers. Hers will have the green borders mine are blue. I also have to plan a graduation party this month for my grandson so I don't want to plan to much.
