April Finishes

Share

Woo Hoo…..April is officially behind me! I can’t tell you how very excited I am about that!

So many life changes in April! You can read about the majority of them here. And I will talk about many of them in my upcoming podcast (the plan is still to post it tomorrow)!

BUT for today I am here to discuss my finishes well ticks off the list for the month of April. I don’t have any official finishes as far as something I can call done but I had set myself some goals for the month of April and I finished some of them. That always makes me feel good. WAIT….I did get one finish – one that even qualifies for the FAL!

I finally finished the binding on the Reunion Quilt. Let me tell you, that was one big quilt. It is already in the home of the owner (we auctioned it off 2 years ago at the reunion and I am just getting around to finishing it up – Shhh don’t tell anyone). Here are a few shots of that quilt:

The majority of the masive quilt! Wish I had thought to get measurements.

Here are the goals I set myself for April:

  1. Finish the top and back for Kaylah’s T-Shirt Quilt DONE
  2. Make myself 2 skirts I made 1 of the 2
  3. Quilt The Revamp Top did nothing
  4. Bind the Reunion Quilt DONE
  5. Complete all my monthlys ALL DONE
    • Sugar Block Club
    • MSB
    • Toes in the Sand
    • Christmas BOM
  6. Start the Texas Teardrop Quilt (a new one) DECIDED THIS WAS A BAD IDEA!!

Not too bad?! I have to get Kaylah’s quilt done by May 23rd and considering I had to cut and piece both the front and back (which was haphazardly placed together), I think I did ok. Speaking of which, I don’t think I have showed any pictures of this yet! Tomorrow – because I need some input on the quilting!

Well, I am off! I am going to link up with Melissa at A Lovely Year of Finishes and then I am going to bed! Have a great day (I sure hope you all have had weather as great as mine – I am currently nursing a sunburn)!
