Weekly update: parts A, B, and C

I have three of the four parts of my One Monthly Goal completed.

A -- Two tote bags for the Rotary Golf outing on May 18

B -- A mug rug for a colleague who is retiring (luncheon May 17)  (And while I was at it I made one for a friend who's graduating from Gateway Technical College this coming Tuesday.) 

C -- Three mug rugs for P.E.O. committee members with whom I've served this past year
(presentation June 1).  (Daisies are the P.E.O. flower.)

I am narrowing down ideas for D, a tote bag for the P.E.O. committee chair.

I made a Chinese Puzzle block in pink for the May Rainbow Scrap Challenge .  It joins the January-April blocks on the design wall.

This month's Block Lotto is a rail fence variation (6-1/2") with white/green/blue. I made 8 blocks.

June is my month as the Block Lotto designer.  I have chosen the block, written the instructions, and made samples.  You'll have to wait until June 1 to see what it is!

  1. The rainbow blocks are very pretty. I love the rail fence block. What a great scrap buster block. Thanks for sharing.

  2. You have been a very busy quilter! The mug rugs are darling and I'm sure will be appreciated. The RSC blocks will be great in all those colors. Have a lovely week!

  3. You have been busy again! Love the daisies!!

  4. Lots of pretty things under your needle. The mug rug daisies are charming. 2001 is a long time ago--so sorry.

  5. Boy are you staying on track for the OMG. You are almost all finished. Love the mug rugs. Those daisies are fun. Keep up the good work.

  6. You have been busy! All pretty projects. Love the flower mug rugs especially. Thanks for linking with Design Wall Monday, I appreciate you.

  7. Your mug rugs are adorable! I’m sure the recipients will be thrilled. I like your Chinese puzzle blocks, too. I’ve never seen that block, but it’s great for scraps.

  8. Chinese puzzle looks fun to make. Those daisies are so beautiful.
    Memories is all that remains. Sending hugs and best wishes.

  9. Those daisies are adorable, and I love your tote bags, too! I've never made a bag before -- they SCARE me! Isn't that funny? But I'm having trouble finding a casual, fun summer bag that fits my iPad and if I could find the right pattern... :-)

  10. Lovely picture of you and your sister with your mother. So many beautiful projects. I love all of them, especially the tote bags.
