A finish and a start, some progress

 So this is what April brought........a finish, a start, and some progress.
  •  The guild challenge quilt is put together with the borders on.  It is ready for pinning and then the quilting fun begins.  
  • Buzzsaw is in the works.
  • Stings and coins.....the on-going watercolor to use up lots of strips.  Only they seemed to have multiplied!
  • Loose Change is this month's finish.  This was the scrap quilt made from 5" square stash.
May is next up.....time for some plans and focus.

Water strip quilt----get it sewn together.  Nicki's recent comment gave me some additional inspiration on how to finish this one up.  I was stumped on the border--or not-- and now I have a vision.  Thanks for the help!
Make more buzzsaw blocks.  I actually got  a few  more done yesterday as they go together quickly now.

Never Too Hot to Stitch!Pin the challenge quilt....this month.  I have till September to finish this so it may not get quilted till later.

Start a NewFO......strings to carry me for the summer months.  I love the mindless sewing that a string quilt brings.  I get to play with color and create some drama.    I have been collecting ideas for layouts of string quilts to share.  

  And that is all I am committing to for May.....unless something else pops in.

Oh.....and I don't want to forget to welcome a new Mrs. Claus!
  This sweet little doll quilt came a couple of days ago.  It was made and donated by Happy Erme of the HGTV Message board.  She sent this to represent the state of New Mexico.   Such beautiful colors!  Thanks so much, I really appreciate the help and support.

Happy stitching.
