Tra La, It's May! The Lusty Month of May . . . . Do you know what musical these words are from? We just saw it at a local theater. Hint -- it's a Lerner and Lowe musical. 2nd hint -- It started as a Broadway musical in 1960 starring Richard Burton, Julie Andrews and Robert Goulet. 3rd hint -- It is based on T. H. White's book The Once and Future King. It was also made into a movie. Have you guessed it yet? I will share the answer at the bottom of this post. My folks had a record of the Broadway cast which we must have played frequently since I remembered most of the songs and words during the recent play. Pat and I both enjoy musicals so we go to see them at our local theater fairly frequently.
Moving right along to my goals. YES! It was a great week for finishing goals this past week. Here's the list and how many I finished.
✅ ✅ Quilt & Bind 2 Rainbow Scrap Challenges top -- both done!
✅ Make a couple of dog toys -- 2 done, possibly 2 more to be done
✅ Make 3 RSC blocks in pink -- done waiting for May's color
✅ Finish improve top -- done (see below)
Work on Pyramid class project -- nothing, sigh!
I'll share the 2 RSC quilts during the next few weeks. I was so happy to get them finished. The backing fabric was purchased in February. I used half of it. So one more quilt will be done soon with enough left for another smaller quilt.
Here are the last two RSC blocks in pink.
As I was making the top one I laid out the units incorrectly, see below. Hum, I really like this block too. Maybe another quilt will come from this design someday.
Although it took me until Sunday to get most of these goals done, I am so happy to have all of them done especially the improv quilt top. It was also my UFO Challenge for April. The top is awaiting quilting -- someday. I need to find a backing and I doubt I have enough of any fabric in my stash.
When I finish all the fabrics I have for the dog toys I'll show them. It should be in the next week or so as I am taking them to Maryland for Faithful Circle Quilters' show May 19 - 21. They will be at the $10 and under table.
Now let's see what is up for this week.
Work on pyramid class project
Start May’s UFO challenge
Work on Christmas ornaments
Make more Spider Web blocks
Although the list is the same length as last weeks I doubt if it will be as time consuming. Hopefully I'll make forward progress on all of those items.
Ok, time for the Linky parties.
Yep, I'm adding a few more parties. We'll see if I can remember to actually link up with all of them.
And the musical is ..... Camelot!
Happy Quilting All! Bonnie
