WiP - April

  Whew! How did we get to the end of another month already? This one flew by - we were either prepping for my husband to deploy, or trying to get into a good schedule after he deployed. I think we've finally settled into something that might work through the end of the school year...if I ignore all the stuff that starts ramping up in May. National Honors Society, district-wide concerts, end of the year preschool parties... Sigh. Nope, I can handle this. And some sewing in between!

Plenty of finishes for April - Toy Story, gifted to a friend; Flower, a mini; Coquette Cracker, already claimed by my niece; a Bloomsday t-shirt quilt; and a donation quilt made from flannel scraps.

I worked on my blocks of the month - Floating Stars, Eternal Bloom, Celtic Solstice, Rainbow Scrap Challenge.

And in between all that, I pieced some bear paw blocks for my friend's quilt. I only need 16, so I'm nearly done.

And I finished quilting, then trimmed down four quilts for my church. {Don't get too excited about this development - I quilted 2.5 of them a while ago. They just finally made it back to the longarm.}

And the big projects - I cut and pieced two more t-shirt quilts. One is a monster 67 shirts, measuring 110" square! They're both ready for quilting, minus pesky little details like backings.

I really need to plot out May, because I know there's a few things I need to get to besides the t-shirt quilts - like the wedding quilt {my OMG goal.} I don't want to reach the end of the month and realize I haven't got enough school days left! I've got a countdown till the end of July - our probable move date - and it's already under 100 days. Ahhhh! Okay, breathe. And schedule. And breathe.
