A Year of Lovely Finishes May Goal Finished

May has completely caught me off guard. I've been doing a gazillion projects that were not on my goals list.  My AYLF goal  for May was to finish my scrappy swoon. Since I'm not really a fan of this quilt I just wanted it done!
Last week I squared it up, put the binding on by machine and did a decorative stitch around the star. I still can't see the star, so I may have to add something to it, but for now it is as done as it is getting.

I used a dark purple Aurifil thread on it,  but ran out, so now I need a road trip to get more. I looked online,  but couldn't tell for sure which one it is. I used a light purple variegated Aurifil thread to do the accent stitching around the star.

I'm so excited that I have been able to finish 5 projects on my UFO list, simply by participating in AYLF and making myself work on them. Here's hoping I get to do some fun projects in June as well.

It's too bad you don't like this - it looks really cool. I know how it's weird when a pattern doesn't pop the way you think it is. You'll look at this in a couple months and think "Dang - that's pretty amazing!"
