May M&M and Tomatoes

May seems to have flown by quite rapidly. I can't believe Mother's Day and Memorial Day has come and gone. Was great seeing all the flags flying high and proud.

Slow starts this month. Worked on DD quilt. It is mostly quilted but had to set it aside to make curtains for grandson #1. He turned 10 this year. My how time does fly.

I made Logan the quilt last year, days before they arrived from upstate NY. If you look real hard you can see him in bed playing with his iPad mini. That wall color is hard on my brain, but I don't live in that room! LOL!

So my GREEN for RSC14 is the  Pennants. I made 48 of them to use on the curtains. Have 8 left to put his name on.

Today, the last day of the month, I was able to piece the flimsy of my SIL matching  skull quilt. Can't wait to get these finished and go back to making "Smalls"!

Target date is June 25th. Would like this finished for their 11th Anniversary. I had intended this to be done for their 10th. Oh well, better late than never.

Other things on the burner this month :.

I made a Doll Swap Quilt and mailed it out to my partner Lynn. She said she really like it! So glad. The theme was "Modern", but after four attempts, I chucked it and did my own thing. I just could not getting something I like in miniature in the "Modern" flavor. Everything I tried looked better in full size.

Lynn in turn sent me a terrific Modern Quilt. I just love it! It is hanging in my dining room!

My grandson Louis spends a lot of time with me. He is 4 and sometimes hard to entertain. We have been growing tomatoes. I keep telling him is a good farmer. He informed me the other day that he is not a farmer, he is a gardener! LOL! He is too!

He also informed me that they are his tomatoes. He loves veggies, so I know he will enjoy eating his bounty.

This is Louie with cat ears, admiring the first tomato to sprout!

Come join the fun! Do the Linky!!!

  1. Love the star block with a little bonus star! So pretty.

  2. I very seriously considered that same star for my astronaut block. It's a great block. Very cute stuff here.

  3. What a delightful blog; I came via Barb's FO party. Your grandson is a doll; the cat ears make it all too fun.

  4. Stopping by from Cat Patches party. Oh, I love those green walls!! Nice post.

  5. I like the curtains. They soften the green. The doll quilt you made is cute. I like the off set star! I hope your tomatos are doing better than mine. One is turning yellow.

  6. I tried a modern quilt this week and it didn't turn out at all like I thought it would---and I thought it would be super easy too. Guess modern and me just don't mix! Love your doll quilt for the swap.

  7. Hello Aileen,
    Hilarious green walls, and the quilt does great job in calming it all down.
    Your DQ star quilt is lovely. I would have ducked the modern theme too - I think modern quilts look like avant garde 1960s, not really modern at all.
    Love from England, Muv
