April So Far



So far I’m keeping up with all my monthly projects, although it isn’t leaving me much time for my other projects I need to get finished.


This is the quilt I made for our Bee’s Community Service  project.  It will be given to a young lady for her birthday in June.  Hope she will like it.


My Saturday Sampler blocks for April:


The one on the left is from Pickleweeds Quilt shop and on the right is the block from Tiny Stitches. I so enjoy doing the Saturday Samplers.  I guess it would be nice if I actually finished the quilt tops.  I don’t think I’ve finished any of the ones I’ve done the last several years.


I’m also having fun making the blocks for Pat Sloan’s “Vacation Time” BOM.


My April block.  Think an entire quilt of this block would be really nice.  There is another baby quilt that I’d like to make.  Don’t know if this block would work well in a quilt 3 blocks wide x 4 blocks long plus borders.  But it would be so cute done in boy colors with a dinosaur featured in the center of each friendship star.

March is gone and I’m happy to say I got all the BOMs, Saturday Samplers and Quilt a longs finished before the month ended.  Now on to April.  I’m now up to 8 on going projects.  Whatever happened to that New Year’s Resolution of only 4 projects!?  I still have several of last year’s projects to finish, numerous UFO’s and short term projects to finish.

March blocks:


The first picture is Michele Foster’s A4AII Lessons 1 & 2. I think  I will like the fabrics I picked.  The second block is Pat Sloan's Vacation Time for March.



The March Saturday Sampler blocks from Pickleweed’s and Tiny Stitches.



These are the 2nd months blocks for the Threads of Time BOM.



The guild I belong to is making a raffle quilt in fall colors.  It will be raffled off at next year’s quilt show.  The pattern they are using is “Star Dance”.  This is the block I made for it.


I managed to get the diaper bags made in time for the baby shower.


The ladies loved their bags.

So far I’m keeping up with April.  Hope I have time to finish the two elephant quilts and get them quilted.
