I love how this is working for me. As much as we all love starting something new, there is that hidden project that needs it's time to shine, also.
'Countdown to Christmas' done in Midwinter Reds line was my March 'Something Old' and pleased that it is now ready for quilting. It is bagged with backing and batt for the longarmer (someone new). I hope to have it delivered to her in the next few days.
I felt horrible when I found these blocks. My 'Something Old' for April project. These were for Bea's Scrappy Chain QAL. I need to check the pattern, layout, and count blocks (may need a couple more made) and get busy putting this into a quilt top.
I actually had listed my Book It project as also my 'Something New' project, but that seems cheeky with all the NEW things I started in March. So I am using my lozanges blocks for the new leader/ender project with Bonnie Hunter - you can find them under her 'free pattern' file.
For April's 'Something New' I will be using the new Triangle QAL (see button on side bar). I've had this FQ bundle of 'London' by Free Spirit that I won almost a year ago. The first assignment was cutting all the triangles.
See, another new start - love it!! I will be using my Monthly Doll Quilt Swap Group project for this one. This month's theme is 'Diamonds are Forever' and my partner and I agreed to stay on theme.
I've been very pleased with the growth each month - thank you ladies for participating. You can see the March link up HERE.
Yep - I'm going large for a change. We do have to challenge ourselves. I love working with small pieces, so doing a large block will be my challenge. I have some bright and fun left over FQs (I have some more fun polka dots to pull). This book caught my eye as an 'I have to have this one' and it sat. It was the cover quilt and that is the project I am using for April.
A few other projects in the mix:
Relaxing Round Robin
Rainbow Challenge Blocks
Monthly Christmas Project
Simply Small monthly project
Get at least one of my three charity quilts quilted for Hands2Help
once Marcia returns from her visit abroad (loving on that grand babe), we start plotting out this year's May For Me
AND if the weather improves - get lots of walking in - I was released by my surgeon at Tuesday's visit!!
