March Recap & April Goals

My March goals were as follows:

  1. Quilt the Monkey Tumbler Quilt (I pieced the backing last month) and bind - Quilted, but not bound yet...finished by my terms
  2. Make the backing and quilt the pink/fuchsia quilt ( I put the blocks together in January) and bind- backing made, but I didn't get it quilted yet...I took this off the list for now because I don't know how I want to quilt it.
  3. Put borders on the town square quilt and piece the backing- I didn't have the right fabric for this.  Since the kids made be give up buying fabric for lent, I had to put this one off until April.
  4. Start sewing the blocks together on my second Carolina Crossroads quilt- never got to this one.

Bonus projects: (it is good to dream right?)
  1. Quilt my Red/Black/Grey Twister - mostly quilted, just need to quilt the last border
  2. Quilt the Grey/Yellow plus quilt.- didn't even look at this one.

Out of the six things on the list, I didn't complete one.  I sort of jumped around from various projects.  I am not discouraged, and I will try to do better this month.  April is going to be a busy month for me, so I intend to make my goals a little easier.

April Goals (from the UFO list):
  1. Finish Quilting my twister quilt
  2. Quilt my twister wall hanging (I managed to get the borders on last month)
  3. Put borders on the second Monkey quilt
  4. Put the borders on the town square quilt
  5. Quilt and bind the pink/yellow floral quilt.
April New projects:
  1. Quilt the baby quilt I pieced last night
  2. quilt my green/yellow scrappy swoon

I will say that when I surf the blogs, there are some real over-achievers.  I have several years of UFOs (almost a decade), and it will take me several years to finish them up.  I am working hard to finish all the new things I start this year so they don't end up on the year end list too.
