The only thing that I really wanted to achieve for April was to get all caught up on my bee blocks but I still havent managed it!
I did get my fish done finally though!
I said that if I got the chance then I would work on my commissioned baby quilt and my own hst quilt. Well I didn't work on the commission (not due til November so no hurry!) but I did do not 1 but 2 hst quilts and they went from being for me to being for each of my boys for their bedroom when we move
Only tops done so far, quilting will have to wait a while I think
I did manage to do 2 things that I was desperately hoping to find time to do.
I entered the Sew Out Loud Competition with this paper pieced entry (and found out that I have got through to the final 5!)
And I entered Fabric8, a fabric design competition held by Spoonflower and Robert Kaufmann. The 100 that get through to the next round will be announced on May 3rd, please keep your fingers crossed for me!
Above is what a yard would look like and below is what a fat quarter would look like
Linking up this months makes with Lily's quilts and as always trying to make myself get stuff done by writing Mays To Do List (feel free to join me by linking up at the end!)
Must Do -
Bee Blocks - last months and this months (I really hate being behind, must get on top of it!)
- Sew Bee Joyful - A paper pieced Teapot or tea block of my own design for April and Books for May
- Piece Bee With You - A cold/flu themed block for April and not yet sure about Mays (who had May, must check!)
Secret Project - I have a really fun and very exciting secret project in the pipeline, stay tuned all will be revealed in good time. Here are the fabrics that I have picked out for it
Might Do -
Start making things for the new house, I have written myself a massive list but I might wait until we get in there to get more of a feel for what I want/need
Lu Summers quilts - my fabric is on order, the designs are drawn up, I just need to wait for the fabric to arrive. Have you bought yours yet? everywhere seems to be selling out really quickly so dont hang about if you want some! Mine is going to become more quilts for the boys room.
Commissioned baby quilt - I doubt it but we will see
Written a To Do List for the month? Come on lets see it
