OMG It's Finished! Linkup May 2016

Okay, I sure hope ya'll have had better success with your One Monthly Goal this month than I have!

Perhaps I was a wee bit optimistic: Summer Gathering still waits patiently for me, leading the queue beside Mr. Juki. Of course, I wish I were sharing a finished quilt today! Instead, I will share the little projects I am toting with me tonight to the Las Vegas Modern Quilter's meeting.
Two block-lotto blocks, and a hummingbird I made for the Drunkard's Path block challenge. I was inspired by a quilt shared recently by Susan, who blogs at The Bored Zombie. My little block just doesn't represent her work well though, and I encourage you to check hers out! Susan named her beautiful quilt Doxstar's Flight, giving credit to the artist whose work inspired her, Cedric Kesteloot.

I am looking forward to seeing your quilty finishes!
One week left friends: I hope you can do it!!

In the prize-pool this month:
 Fusion Illusion scrap pack of 5"x18" cuts
 One lovely charm pack of Fossil Fern, generously gifted by Lara, of BuzzinBumble

Sew Scrappy Saturday: RSC Blocks and Crafted Applique Winner!

Stolen moments: Five minutes here, ten there, I am finding time to piece with green. I selected the most forest-like strips from my scrap bin and created two more Kite Tail blocks:

Ten blocks are finished now!

I'm also keeping up with the leftovers, they're pieced together in 12.5" lengths.
I intended that these might border the Kite Tails in some way, but now I am leaning toward a quilt all their own.

Next, I pulled from my vintage stash to use this little squirrel as the focus for this month's Courthouse Baby block:

Have you been inspired by the Crafted Applique Bloghop? 
Today, the Book Tour headed up to Canada, for a visit with Cindy, who blogs at Stitchin at Home! You will find the entire tour schedule at BuzznBumble, where Lara also has lots of party favors!

Thank you for all the wonderful comments left here, on my post for the tour! Congratulations to Louise, whose name was drawn at random from those comments, as the winner of the giveaway! Louise blogs at Quilt Odyssey, where she shares her quilty adventures afloat Vector, her home on the water! Pop on over and say Hello to Louise!

I am linking up today with Scrap Happy Saturday at So Scrappy!
I hope yours is a Sew-Happy weekend!

Enter to Win! A Few Shares..

Good Morning!
A quick post this morning to share with you a couple giveaways going on in Blogland!
Maybe this will make up for my slow-blogging as of late,
(due in part to my new RedLetterQuilts account on Instagram!)
Instagram is fun! I was afraid of the commitment, then realized I can participate as little or as much as I like! I have found it user-friendly, and posting once or twice a week has been good so far!

I have extended the Crafted Applique Giveaway , now accepting entries through Tuesday, May 17th! Apparently I was looking at the April calendar when I wrote the post. Such is my life these days, haha..

Another Book Tour I have been following is Modern Selvedge Quilting, by Riel Nason who blogs at The Q and the U. I have admired Riel's work for so long now and I'm pretty excited to get my hands on this book! Today's stop on the tour is at Poppyprint, where Krista shares some great inspiration.
 I adore this quote she shared from the book:

"Selvages are like ticket stubs you keep from a fabulous show"

I'll share another giveaway going on this morning, because who wouldn't love to win a bundle of Oakshott? One lucky winner is going to be very very happy after visiting Lynne at Lily's Quilts...

OK, One more, lol!! 
If you are not already following Lea Anne, at Podunk Pretties, you may want to check out her blog! She is offering a cute tutorial tomorrow, (and giveaways!)

Did you see that Denyse Schmidt is featured as today's Flash Sale at Fat Quarter Shop, with New Bedford yardage at 50% off! I am still indecisive about how to spend the $100 gift certificate I won during the Worldwide Quilting Day celebration. Eventually, I will make up my mind - and I will be sharing the fabric with the OMG Prizepool!
I am leaning toward a pre-order, there are so many coming out this year!
I could use some of these for my Daily Dot quilt, and they look like great stash-fabrics:

 I still have a bit of Figgy Puddin' left in my Christmas Stash, and I am tempted by the new line coming from BasicGrey, Juniper Berry. The colorway is quite similar.

It is sooo hard to make up my mind with all the great lines set to release this year! Maybe I could be persuaded! Is there something in particular you would like to see in the OMG Prizepool?
