April Goals/March Recap

I fell a little short on my April goals.  I still need to quilt my pillows and bind 3 more quilts from January.

April starts baseball/softball/track stuff so that doesn't leave much sewing time.  I have a retreat this weekend which should help me to get a few things done.

This is what I will be working on in April -

  1. Quilt 2 more customer quilts.
  2. Put together the blocks for Lewis and Clark quilt.  I did manage to get the alternate blocks made in March
  3. Put borders on my 4-patch quilts set on point.
  4. Put the last border on the Churn dash blocks
  5. Bind the remaining 4 quilts from January
  6. Put together a new project that I cut out
  7. Quilt the pillows/runners that I made in February (after number 1-4 is completed)
Focus!!  I seem to be having some trouble with this lately.

I am ready for borders for this old scrap quilt.  I made the sashing in October.  I put it together earlier this year.  Now I am having some trouble picking the border fabrics.  I may just go with large bricks of several fabrics.  It is so large that I have to gather it in the middle to make it fit on the design wall.  I think it will be about 118" with borders.  Do you have a border preference?

We are still waiting (rather impatiently) for a city assignment for my daughter.  I don't know why this is harder than waiting for the country assignment.  I did manage to put together this cute little mug rug as a test block. The pear pattern is from Fig Tree quilts.  I love how it turned out.   

Stop over Judy's to see what others are working on on this week.

Wow your scrap quilt is beautiful (and huge)! The pear bug rug is just wonderful.

Love your scrappy quilt... have a great retreat (sounds like you will need it!). Your post made me think of one May when my daughter was in track and JO volleyball and our son was in golf and little league baseball. Thank goodness there was only one of those!
