April goals

grab button for RedLetterQuilts

It's time to think about my goals for the month.  Last month my goal was make a baby quilt top. The quilt is for one of my work colleagues and the baby isn't due until the end of June. I've now finished the top having stitched all the fishes down. I haven't taken a photo since I finished it so here's one from earlier in the month.

My goal for this month is to completely finish the quilt. I need to go shopping as I have to buy some wadding and backing fabric. I'll have time to do that on Wednesday. I can't wait to get started on the quilting.

Dust Off Those Books

The baby quilt top was my March ' Let's book it' challenge and so for the second time this year I've successfully completed this challenge. Let's book it is an opportunity to pull out those patterns we have always been planning on making and just get on with it. If you want to know more about the challenge click hereI haven't decided what project I want to make for my April project but I have a couple of mug rug patterns I want to make  so that will probably be it.

Other projects I want to work on this month will include my 'It's a dog's life' quilt. The top was finished a while ago and I have the fabric and wadding to complete the project. I'm not working on Wednesday so my first job will be to prep this ready for quilting.

I also need to get my kitchen curtains made.  The fabric is all cut and ready to sew. It shouldn't take long as it's just nice long straight seams. The kitchen is all done except for the curtains. I love the fabric with it's pretty tea and coffee pots and cup

Of course there are also the blocks for the rainbow scrap challenge and for the splendid sampler. I have several blocks to catch up for the splendid sampler. There are also some other things I want to work on including 10 more of the arcs for the double wedding ring quilt.

The month's goals should be doable even with a very full work diary. I love the excitement of trying to meet my goals.
