Greetings! April is turning out to be a great positive month for us! Things are really getting back to normal. Weather is acceptable and we have a trip planned for this month! Finally something to look forward to for fun!
Yesterday I took time to evaluate my weekly and monthly check out my thought process for my UFO goals. Taking the time to do this has encouraged me that by June I just may be caught up!
- Applique Jacobean Lights – Work on the 3 large blocks by Goal by 20 April or forget it
- Sweet Stitches Borders and into a finished top – Goal 12 April
- A Bountiful Life Border – Goal 12 April
- Dresden Heaven – prepare fabric background grid – Goal 12 April
- Stars Around the Garden – Begin working on Setting – 12 April
- Stonefields – Either finish the last 4 sections or forget them – May
- Celebrating Brown – prepare 2 blocks for applique -May
- Antique Blue and White Quilt – New Project – May
- Kaye England’s Mystery Medallion – New Project – May
- Quilt Autumn Jubilee
If I do not complete the 3 remaining blocks for the Jacobean Lights then they will be put in the “never never’ drawer and I will put the other blocks together for a top. The other 3 goals will be doable in the next week and it will be great if I can achieve that goal. As far as quilting tops, my RF has been delayed until the 15th of April. I should be able to quilt at least 1 top this month. The trip will prevent me from accomplishing other things, but the getaway is worth it! I will come back ready to get on the “Catch up” quilting train!
Now for the finishes! I am thrilled that I am completely finished with OMIGOSH!
This quilt was my challenge quilt and so glad I did it! I will say that I have never seen so many strings and raveling of fabric in my 20 years of quilting. This quilt will be quilted soon as possible because anytime you touch it there are more strings on the floor!
I love being able to hang my quilts when taking pictures, but have not figured out how to get the bottom from appearing wavy. The quilt is square even if it looks wavy! I forgot to measure it and will not until it is complete finished but it is close to 60″ x 70″.
Next goal completed! I have finished hand quilting the main part of Indian Summer. I have decided to put it away for awhile to let my fingers rest. I also need time to study the borders and decide the best way to quilt them. The quilting will be 1/4″ to prevent flaring, so I need to allow myself the time to do it correctly. The last last time I hand quilted a quilt was in July 2013, so I have really enjoyed the hand quilting and moving this one into the finished column by June. I remember when and where I purchased this fabric in 2002, and I never thought I would ever complete it but I am close to the finish line!
Have a wonderful day and today is hair cut day for me – long time in coming!
