OMG April

We have a typical April day here in southeastern Pennsylvania.  It's around 60 but raining.  The perfect day to stay inside and stitch!

I'm keeping my one monthly goal simple this month.  As I looked around my sewing room last week, I had five (!) projects out in various stages of completion in addition to two Block of the Month programs I'm trying to keep up with.   It's time to bring some of these to a finish and I'm planning to devote most of the month to clearing off the various surfaces in the room one project at a time.  My April OMG is to complete the quilting and binding on this quilt that I'll be donating to my quilt guild's charity.  That's also in keeping with my goal to complete and donate six quilts this year.

This was a lot of fun, and easy to piece.  I used the raspberry fabric for the backing and still have at least two yards of it left.  Not sure what I was thinking when I bought that much!  I have enough of the ice cream fabric left to do another quilt, but I'm a little tired of working with these colors and will probably make a pillowcase out of the leftovers.

Be sure to pop over to Elm Street Quilts  to see what others want to accomplish this month.  Or just hop over there to see the bright spring colors on her post.  It will bring a smile to your face!


  1. Susan, your quilt top is lovely. I look forward to seeing it finished. Good luck to you as you journey towards this goal.

  2. what no stitching WIP'S?? just kidding - you have some great goals for cleaning up your quilting UFO's - good luck - pretty pink quilt ! Mel

  3. Good for you. It can overwhelm when we have so many "in progress". Divide and conquer and get some of those projects moved to the completed column. You can do it!

  4. Very nice quilt. Thanks for linking up with Elm Street Quilts One Monthly Goal and good luck with your project.

  5. A lot of projects keeps the interest from one project waining. But sometimes it's just time to finish one off. That's a cute quilt that someone is going to love!

  6. Nice quilt! No bad thing to have lots of WIPs, but narrowing them down is good too.
