It's that time of the month again when I look back to see how well I got on with my goals. Overall I feel that April has been a good sewing and creative month.
Goal 1 Complete the quilt for Jennifer. Completed
Lucy was going to make this quilt as a birthday present for her best friend Jennifer. Unfortunately she run out of time so asked if I would be able to help. The quilt was completely finished last week.
This was my finish for April for the 'A Lovely year of finishes' challenge.
Goal 2 Complete the 'Votes for women' quilt top. Not completed.
It is so nearly finished but I wanted to add a white border but I haven't got any in my stash and unfortunately my local quilt shop has run out. I will finish the top this weekend as the fabric will be in on Saturday.
This is the last photo I have but I have since stitched all the rows together.
Goal 3 Complete my 'Super Power' blog hop projects. Done
My day was Friday 18th April and I made a cushion cover using scraps.
Goal 4. Make the blocks for the Rainbow Scrap Challenge. Done
The colour this month was purple. I am making 4 nine patch blocks
Also I'm making a hexie block each month.
Goal 5 Start my April NewFO Done
My NewFO for April is a knitting project rather than quilting. Kathryn has a friend who is having her first baby in August and I wanted to knit a baby blanket I am making a pattern that I used a couple of years ago. Here is the blanket I made then.
This is a lovely blanket to knit and the yarn is so beautifully soft. I started this a few days ago and it is growing quickly.
So April has been a good month for getting projects finished. I'm hoping May will be a good.
I'm linking this post with Melissa at Sew Bittersweet Designs for the April finishes party and Barbara at Cat Patches for her NewFO linky party.
I hope April was a good Sewing month for you .
