After dithering for years about the whats and hows of finishing this little very heavy and stiff batik pictorial piece, I finally bit the bullet and finished it this month. After playing around with the broken dishes blocks idea for the border, I opted for this plain and simple surround for the batik.

My Merry Month of May Mini
Quilting the batik was a bear to say the least! Lots of tension issues. Thankfully I didn't waste good fabric on the back and just used a plain white well-washed sheet. Which ended up being a good choice since the back is a hot mess!
The day was nice and I tried a few photos outside. The grass was getting long and the quilt wouldn't lie flat but I kind of liked the wavy appearance and the deep green background.
Happy to finally have this finished, though no idea what I'll do with it! I'll link up when Wendy at The Constant Quilter posts her monthly roundup of mini-makers at the end of the month.
Rainy, cold weekend in store for us. We need the rain, though the timing wasn't great for all the weekend warriors. We'll stay off the roads and have soup for supper, maybe some hot biscuits to go with, and there are strawberries for shortcake if we don't snack on them beforehand. Hope you're enjoying this holiday weekend and remembering all those real warriors who gave their lives for our freedoms. May their sacrifice not be in vain.
