Scrap Dance Mystery QAL

Since I am not currently following any BOM or QAL, I decided on a whim this week to participate in the Scrap Dance Quilt Along led by From my Carolina Home. I have heaps of 2.5" squares to choose from, and I'm a SUCKER for a good MYSTERY!
Not the best shot, but this is the Rebar TV table where I worked on laying out the squares to be pieced. Ty made a few of these type tables last year, and I love mine..
I selected blue and green squares with lots of geometrics, then got to work making HST's to go with them. Always a bit scary to pick fabrics without knowing what is to be made, but I chose a medium blue solid as a stashbuster for this There are several size options provided, but I have a late start so this will be baby-size. I'm almost caught up with the QAL and I will share photos with the Scrap Dance Flickr Group -  the next assignment is not until the 13th.

That gives me time to conquer my May goal ...
I missed the March goal setting linkup for A Lovely Year of Finishes.
Actually, I seem to have missed March altogether..
This month I am setting an achievable goal:  I really want to finish a quilty bookcover for Mother's Day and still haven't tackled it. I have the dimensions and plan scratched out - the book is a (very cool!) large-type cookbook from the NY Times. The print is HUGE and I think this will really be appreciated, however it is secondhand and really needs a quilty touch to be gift-worthy!
OK, it is an official goal, I am linking up (#39) with ALYOF goal setting for May!
