WiP – April

 

Whew! How did we get to the end of another month already? This one flew by – we were either prepping for my husband to deploy, or trying to get into a good schedule after he deployed. I think we’ve finally settled into something that might work through the end of the school year…if I ignore all the stuff that starts ramping up in May. National Honors Society, district-wide concerts, end of the year preschool parties… Sigh. Nope, I can handle this. And some sewing in between!

Plenty of finishes for April – Chain of Fours, nominated for a QOV book; Toy Story, gifted to a friend; Flower, a mini; Coquette Cracker, already claimed by my niece; a Bloomsday t-shirt quilt; and a donation quilt made from flannel scraps.

I worked on my blocks of the month – Floating Stars, Eternal Bloom, Celtic Solstice, Rainbow Scrap Challenge.

And in between all that, I pieced some bear paw blocks for my friend’s quilt. I only need 16, so I’m nearly done.

And I finished quilting, then trimmed down four quilts for my church. {Don’t get too excited about this development – I quilted 2.5 of them a while ago. They just finally made it back to the longarm.}

And the big projects – I cut and pieced two more t-shirt quilts. One is a monster 67 shirts, measuring 110″ square! They’re both ready for quilting, minus pesky little details like backings.

I really need to plot out May, because I know there’s a few things I need to get to besides the t-shirt quilts – like the wedding quilt {my OMG goal.} I don’t want to reach the end of the month and realize I haven’t got enough school days left! I’ve got a countdown till the end of July – our probable move date – and it’s already under 100 days. Ahhhh! Okay, breathe. And schedule. And breathe.

Congrats on a successful April. Lots of pretty finishes. Good luck with all your May plans. A 100 days sounds like a long time, but I know that time will pass way too fast.

Can’t wait to see the wedding quilt. Thanks for linking up with Elm Street Quilts One Monthly Goal and good luck on your project.
