March finishes/ April plans

   March finishes......the water color wall hanging got a sleeve, binding and label.  I love the colors in this one and got it hung up to enjoy.

   Leftover batik strips became a table runner.  I am donating this to our local guild for the $ door prize basket.

  Small lap quilt was my Let's Book It project for the month.  I had a big head start on this one, as the string blocks were already made.  Here's the post of its story.

I looked back to see what plans I had for March and I was happy to see I got them completed.   The bow tie blocks are being assembled into a top....finally.  I must have re-arranged those things a dozen times.   In the end.....the last one looked like the first one, and that is it.   You would think by now, I would know that is how it would end :)

  April days will be busy.

  • A 2 class session for Beginning free motion quilting  is scheduled at my LQS.  I need to print off more pages and make sure I have the right samples pulled. 
  • Cut squares for watercolor workshop in May.  Print off handouts.
  • A trip north to visit daughter.....Sir Old Man has a couple of small projects to do for her while we enjoy a visit.   Hoping for good weather!

  • I have inspiration for a new Let's Book It.....just need to decide if it will be big or small.  
  • Quilting is needed for a Habitat quilt that I bought home from guild last month.  Backing needs to be pieced and then it can be pinned.
  • Make circles!  
  • Bow Tie quilt......I may let this one rest until next month.

  Two small mug rugs....need to be quilted.  Some days I just need a diversion, and these little projects are perfect for that.  Plus I get some color therapy time.....nothing like finding scraps that work together.  I think I will finish these today.

  Happy stitching.

That is one of my favorites of your colorwash wallhangings. It is a reminder to me that it can be a larger percentage of light fabrics.

April sounds like it will be a fun month. The colorwash is sensational.

You had a super March and sounds like April is going to keep you busy.

Some beautiful finishes, I'm especially loving the watercolor hanging. Mug-rugs might be a really good practice project for the newbie quilters at church. May suggest that at our next meeting.
