May Finish!

My May UFO is finished--all made with scraps as a leader/ender project inspired by Bonnie Hunter. This was my One Monthly Goal for May as well as on my Finish-Along List.

It's quilted with  simple loops using Signature Mother Goose thread. 

The backing was made from a print that I had in my stash and leftover pieces from the borders. Amazingly, I had enough binding scraps in red to go all the way around the quilt and then some!
I'm waiting on attaching the label, as this quilt will be donated. 
I've been keeping up with my Primitive Garden blocks.
I may have posted this one already. The bird houses are the block of the month for the Primitive Garden Facebook group. I'm making pretty good progress on the June block now--the rake. They are so fun to stitch, it's hard to stop!

A few weeks ago, I had picked up this McCalls Quilting magazine. I was attracted to the lovely house quilt on the cover designed by Wendy Sheppard. And now I am the lucky winner of a bundle of the fabrics from Windham used to make the model--I see houses in my future!!
