Preparing For “May for Me” Month


I am participating in the May for Me Celebration. It kicks off with a Bingo Game.

Here is the Quilted Bingo Block I made.

Lots of novelty squares. I LOVE Novelty Fabric and have been buying quite a bit of it since I learned to quilt last year. I didn’t love the fussy cutting part though but I do like how my block turned out.

In addition to the novelty fabric, I also used these for my borders, backing and binding.

As the items are called and if I have one, I am to sew on a button in that square. But wouldn’t these empty thread spools be cute as Bingo markers. Looks like a Chess Board, doesn’t it? I love it!!

When the game is over, I will use my bingo “card” as a table mat. Or I might hang it on the wall in my craft room.

Here’s a list of my Bingo squares.

I really had fun making this block. That is, after the fussy cutting was done.


For more details on May for Me, click on the May for Me button on my sidebar. You can also check out the blogs of the four ladies coordinating May for Me. (I put all the links at bottom of this post.)

Lots of fun. Lots of prizes. A month long blog hop to see how the other participants will use their “ME” time.

What do I have planned for May?

My plans include making time for those “I Will Do Later’s”. And the Round-To-It’s. Slowing down, getting off the Fast Track. I might only accomplish one or two things during May but that is OK. My learning curve should inch up. I will focus on a few things simmering on the Back Burner.

And of course, I will tell you all about it. You can cheer me on. Or join in. There is still time. :D

    Just had to comment here about the package that I got from you yesterday. I won the anniversary giveaway and got to pick out somethings for your store. Everything was beautiful and I will have a hard time gifting some of them like I had planned. Your bead work is wonderful. Thanks so much.

    It… is…. spectacular, Donna!!!!! :-D

    I LOVE that sewing notions fabric you used for the backing – and the empty spools as markers is genius!

    • don_mae says:

      Can you believe I have that many spools? That’s a year’s worth of sewing. Before I switched to Gutermann’s. Thanks, Crystal!!

    Hi Donna
    Thanks for the reminder to come see. I love this mat. This might just be my most favorite piece of all your quilting. It would certainly make a wonderful gift for a bingo lover. Thanks for the links too.
