April/May Goals

The year is flying by! Here are the goals I listed for April and my results:

  1. First of all, I want to finish my Hands2Help quilt for Happy Chemo. Done!img_4016-1
  2. I would like to get my borders added to my Brinton Hall top.  Not Done!
  3. I’d like to get the top done for the wedding quilt for my nephew. Done!img_1629
  4. Quilt any QOVs that come in. Done! I had 8 this month.
  5. Finish and mail my quilt for the doll quilt swap hosted by Humble Quilts. Done!img_3994
  6. And I would like to finish at least one more project from my UFO list. I got TWO DONE! Okay, one was kind of cheating as I gave it away, but it is off the list now! img_1272And I did actual sewing and finished this one! This will also go to Happy Chemo.img_4487

What else did I do this month?

I made this 4 patch quilt.


I made this mug rug.


I made a baby quilt. Just for fun. IMG_5550

And I quilted a full sized quilt for a friend.

May will be a busy month. Daughter #3 is graduating from college and moving into an apartment. I will have one out of town trip and will start prepping for a big trip in June. So here are my plans as of now:

  1. I want to get my nephew’s quilt finished.
  2. Brinton Hall borders!
  3. I want to get my Metropolitan Fair Shoo Fly quilt done. I started it three years ago!
  4. I want to get a black and white quilt that I have had in my head for ages out and into fabric!
  5. I want to cut and kit up the rest of the fabrics for the log cabin quilt that I started.

Have a great day!
