Happy Easter, OMG, RSC 2018, and HQAL

Happy Easter!  Have a wonderful day with family and friends.  A short post to provide status of One Monthly Goal (OMG),  RSC 2018 Sampler Squared Away and Hand Quilt Along (HQAL)

Click here to see the status of my OMG for March OMG for March 2018.   I have completed three additional projects that were not on the original list even though I only completed half of my original goals.  I completed the binding on Christmas Hearts and quilted my Bear Paw Quilt which tends to have a floating/optical illusion look, and completed another hand quilted block for Indian Summer  Maybe this makes up for not finishing the original goal.

My RSC 2018 Sampler Squared Away green blocks are complete!

And now I have completed 2 blocks of my Indian Summer quilt!  This was also an “add on” to my March Goals.

I am so happy to see March 2018 over with!  It was not that good of a month and it appears that a lot of my friends did not have a good one either!  Let’s bring in April with nothing but fun, happiness, and more quilting!!!!

March OMG Status and RSC 2018 Squared Away

Greetings from South Texas where we received 3 inches of rain early this morning!  Yea.

I was reading a post from Busy Hands Quilting and she provided a link to Craftsy on 3 ways to do Half Square Triangles (HSTs).  I thought I would pass it on as it is so informative and the designer includes adequate sizes to cut in order to be able to square each one for accuracy!  Great print out to keep!

Here were my March Goals that I was just so sure I could complete.

  1. Flimsy’s to be Quilted (Longarm)– Absolutely No Progress Yet
    Rainbow Regatta     –  Regatta has rejected all choices for a backing – so she still sits waiting for a miracle!
    Rosemary Youngs Happy Scrappy BOM
    Enduring Legacy 
  2. Complete Nesting (All Applique) 2 blocks completed, 1 more than halfway, and then prepare the border. Absolutely No Progress Yet
  3. Complete 2007 UFO BOM – 6 easy blocks to applique – YEA – Completed ready to quilt!
  4. Mountmellick – Complete Section 3 and 4 (borders) – WHO? WHAT? WHEN?  Absolutely No Progress Yet
  5. RSC 2018 – Squared Away blocks for March – YEA – Completed
  6. Finish  My Texas Quilt (designing the setting and sewing into a Flimsy)  WHO? WHAT? WHEN?  Absolutely No Progress Yet

I did add one more project during the month – Indian Summer quilt.  It is a hand quilting project.  I am pleased of the progress that I am making.

 

Whenever I started quilting this quilt I had completed the Sun block and now I have finished the Pot block and ready to work on the middle border, but need to mark it.

Completed 2007 BOM named A year of Flowers and Holidays.

For my RSC 2018 Squared Away the color was Green!  I completed those for the month.

I still have 4 more days before the end of the month – hopefully Regatta and I can come to an agreement on which backing fabric to use!  I need a large shot of CREATIVITY!  Have a great Wednesday – enjoy stitching!
