May UFO Challenge 2022 is finished!

Just a quick post today, but I wanted to share my finished UFO project for May.  This was a Craftsy quilt block of the month, I think it was the very first one!  I never did finish all the blocks, even though I intended to do so.  It has been aging in a drawer for some time now! 

I counted up the blocks I had finished and there were 13.  I thought about whether I wanted to make any more blocks, and I decided that I didn't need to make more blocks and I could just finish this using an on point setting.  I managed to cut enough fabric from my white scraps to make the setting triangles and sashing strips.  The white fabric I used in this quilt was leftover from the tablecloths I made for a daughter's wedding, and they just celebrated their 13th anniversary, so this project is pretty close to being that old, I'm sure!

Once I got the top done, I needed to decide on what to use for backing.  I spotted this pretty blue fabric that I bought last year on sale from Connecting Threads.  I didn't use it for the project I intended to use it for, but it was the perfect color for this quilt!  And as a bonus, there was just enough left for the binding as well!

I quilted this in a bright green thread, using a hook swirl design.  So pretty!  I finished the quilting this afternoon and added the binding.  Yay!  Looks like I get to work on my One Block Wonder quilt in June, so I'm excited to get that on my design wall and start laying out the hexagons.  So exciting to get some of these projects across the finish line!
