May 2018 monthly recap

I had three finishes for May, the first one is 30" square and the other two are 22" x 28".
I completed two quilt tops, the large one is 56" x 72" and the small one is 24" square.  I had 40 of the 64 strips needed for the 16 patch cut for 3 1/2 years, cut while I was making another quilt with the same fabrics.  I just quilted that one in December last year.  When I get this one quilted I'll have to show them side by side.
I have finally started cutting some pieces for my next Kaffe quilt.







I showed this awhile back that I had chosen some fabrics, not all of the same ones as in the book but similar.  This is in the Kaffe Fassett Quilts in Sweden book.

Very nice finishes, you had a very productive month. Add in all the gardening and baking.....

I'm also making this quilt larger than the one in the book--forgot to mention that in the blog.

What a "Wandaful" color wash month ! ! ! Especially the one with the bunnies... And I had forgotten about your 16 patch. I need your monthly recap. You really accomplished a lot this past month.

OHhhh ~ such beautiful fabrics for your next Kaffe quilt !

Your sunlight n the forest piece is going to be fabulous - so rich and full of saturated color. I'm going to click the box below that said follow up comments to my email to see what happens. I don't remember seeing that before - I don't mind if they ask us to opt in for replies but I'm not sure I love having my actual email displayed for spammers to gather. I wonder if this is part of the new solution to missing comments?

Beautiful finishes, great beginnings. I am looking at the Kaffe pattern, Abundance (free) and wondering if I have enough fabric to try it or if it is worth using that fabric for it. https://cdn.shopify.com/s/files/1/0618/3677/files/Abundance_Pattern.pdf
