May UFO ; excited and motivated

Nancy (Patchwork Penguin) has set May's UFO Challenge to be #6. #6 on my list: Rolling Rock.

I'm actually quite excited to jump back into this project; it's a first for me when it comes to piecing curved seams. Therefore, this will be a TRUE challenge to finish because of the intermediate/advanced quilting/sewing skills. The pieces are already cut out and have been stored on a shelf safe-n-neat for the day I would pick it up again. MOST of the fabrics I used for the color sections were cut out of my Grandmother's fabric inheritance, so, it'll have all the more specialness to the project.

I have returned Quilter's Apprentice to the library and checked out Round Robin. I have not spent any time in the quilting room this week, but sure have been enjoying some quiet time in the evenings reading after the girls have gone to bed.

The family and I are heading up the the Farm this weekend; it's been months since we've been up North! I plan to take many of my quilts up with me that are still in need of hand-sewing the connector strip on the back. I also have to finish typing up the directions/lessons for Steppin' Out for the advanced beginners course I'm offering in a few weeks.

Enjoy your weekend!
Happy Thursday.

That's going to be a great quilt - but it does look like quite a challenge. Should be fun though. Have a great weekend.

I love the Rolling Rock block! I have always wanted to make a quilt with those blocks. I will be watching your progress and may have to follow along. TGIF!

I can see why that one had you stumped. Those curves could be tricky. Do you applique the round block down after it is done -- like a Dreden Plate? It will look great when it is done.
