May finishes

I am so glad this quilt is finished!!!  I love it, but I don't enjoy trimming blocks to size.  I would make a few blocks and put it aside to work on another project.   It used charm squares that had to be trimmed to 4 1/2 inches after sew together.  Cutting is my least favorite part of quilt making.  I saw another quilt that I wanted to make until I read that was necessary in the directions.  Maybe some other time, but I am not ready to make another one right now that requires a lot of trimming.
 This is another quilt that I had been working on for a long time.  I used this as a leader ender project.  The tumbler squares are a collective project from my little quilt club.  We all made  Tumbler quilts of various sizes.  Some put borders on and some didn't.  I made mine pretty large and opted not to put a border on it.  I wasn't really liking it as it was going together, but now that it is done, I really do like it.  Totally scrappy.

This is a quilt I made for a little boy fighting for his life-Houston Schwartz.  They will raffle it and hopefully make a little bit of money to help.

 Below are some pictures of a couple of my spring flowers.  It was so cold this spring that I didn't get many photos.  I don't do cold very well.  :)
