May's UFO finish and first finish for June

Very late to post this ....... I have had the rows for this wall hanging since the end of 2006, it was a row X row round robin organised at the Craft Forum.  I wasn't sure how to fit the rows together so it sat for many years until a friend helped me decide what rows would work for the space I had, there are another 3 rows that would just have made this too large for a wall hanging.  I sewed it together in 2011 and then it sat until I found time to quilt, bind and finish it.  which as you can see I have now done. It hangs proudly in our bedroom.  One of the other rows is being made into a table runner the other two possibly cushions, haven't decided yet.
 

 My first UFO finish for June is a Janelle Wind Frilly Dilly bag without the frills.  I love the shape of the bag but didn't want the frills so I decided to raw edge applique a flower on the front.  This has been waiting to be finished for over 2 years.  So pleased to have the Friday night sewing with friends group to encourage me to get some sewing done.
