May UFO Challenge

UFO to be made in May
A roll of the die revealed that number three is the project for May. The project from my UFO Challenge list under that number is the Freedom Flag quilt. Marilyn and I made quilts with this pattern in 2011: the two I made were Quits of Valor.

I liked the pattern so much that I wanted to make another one. The pattern calls for a gradient red fabric, and since 2011, I've had a heck of a time finding it. When my great-niece was married in 2015, I chanced upon the fabric in an Ogallala, NE quilt shop. The yardage has been marinating for three years and is ready to be used.

Finding time to sew this month will be tricky, as May is full of my annual "ists'" appointments: optometrist, periodontist, cardiologist, dermatologist, pulmonologist.

Do you schedule your annual appointments in the same month?


  1. NO, but I need to do girl that you are!! I like your newest quilt, and I am glad you have marinated your fabric long enough!

  2. I used to do them all in Dec, my birth month but have found that was a dumb time to add extras! I do them in June now!
    The new quilt looks to be another great one!

  3. That will be a pretty quilt!

    My various appointments are in different months...and by the time the last one is done it is time to start all over again!

  4. That quilt is going to be AWESOME!!!

    Every four months like clockwork for the dr. and every SIX for the dentist. Once a year for the eye dr. Thankfully, for NOW that is about it.

  5. What a beautiful kit. I’m glad you found the yardage for it.
    Annual physical in Sept., cardiologist down to two visits a year in May and November. Eyes in January. Dentist February and August. No matter how hard I try, I can’t get them all together because of insurance cut-offs.

  6. This will be a beautiful QOV. I used to try to do my appointments in my birthday month of March. But that plan fell by the wayside a few years ago and now they are scattered all year.

  7. I try to schedule them in the winter when life is quieter in general. That being said I'm having a dental implant put in July

  8. That was a challenge, I had to look up pulmonologist to see what it meant! Best of luck with all your visits, hope you get good news from them all.

  9. That will be a pretty quilt! Good luck with all your appointments. We seem to go in spurts with our appointments and I always breathe a sigh of relief when there are no appointments for the doesn't happen often:(
