April accomplishments, May goals

I finished my top three goals for April, and I did it in time.  Hurray!
1. Bind Sarah's quilt.  (This shouldn't take long.)  Done - and it didn't take long. :)

2. Bind I-spy and bury threads.  (There are a lot of threads to bury, but it still shouldn't be too bad.)  Done!  The new owners seem to love it.

3. Finish Interlocking hearts.  (If all goes to plan, I'll have a few extra days before this is due.  Hopefully.) Done!  I did finish this a few days before it was due, but due to tons of rain it was still hard to get some good pictures.  I dropped it off at Hospice as a donation for their fundraising auction.

Since those things were finished in the first part of the month, I also worked on a few other things.
9. Pattern testing of some numbers.  Here are some of the numbers.  I'm working on making a rocket to go with them.

10. Quilt red quilt for mother-in-law. Done!

11. Random triangles. Half way through quilting.  I really like how it's turning out. And the quilting is going really quickly.

12. Fractured quilt.  I have the templates drawn.  I know - it's an exciting picture.

17. April Simply Solids block.  Done!

So here are my goals for May:
1.  Finish HST quilt, ideally before the baby arrives.
2.  Finish countdown and rocket
3.  Piece the individual squares for the fractured quilt.
And the other things that are still hanging around:
4. make the wall hanging for office.
5. pretend to work on scrap quilt.
6. finish green coasters.
7. Aunt's throw. 
8. Pillow for family room.
9. Jeweled floors.
10. Picture quilt (finish by Christmas).
11. Write a pattern for interlocking hearts.
12. Baby boy quilt from jelly roll. (July)
13. May Simply Solids block.
14. Think about another baby quilt (October)
15. One-up mushroom (October)
(late addition)16. T-shirt quilt (September)
Hey, the count went down again!  I'm always happy to see that, but at the same time I'd be sad if there was nothing to work on.
I'll be joining up with Fresh Sewing Day and Just Three as the links become available.


  1. I'm impressed with your done projects and your May list. Good luck. Maybe I should post mine to hold me more accountable. Love the I spy quilt design.

  2. Looks like you are definitely making progress and excellent work finishing your goals for April. I wish that I could say the same!

  3. You are getting a lot done and have an impressive list for May... I love making lists too and find it helps to keep me focused. Love your I-spy layout!

  4. WOW! You have been busy.
    Glad you liked my newest twirly whirly quilting motif - please let me know how it works out for you.
