April Fool: Just 3

I finally feel like I got something done this month!  The plan for March...

1.  Make something with these adorable Alexander Henry Once Upon a Time prints...
I pieced this top while on retreat with the BMQG.

2.  Finish something from the UFO pile...
I rescued this Pretty Little Pinwheel quilt from the UFO pile and also quilted it at retreat.

3.  And seriously, quilt the Hexie blob...
For the first time in a long time I didn't host Easter.  Instead, we spent the day in Kennebunk, Maine with family which meant I had 4 hours of quilting time while we drove up and back.  It's not quite done but I'm very close:-)

I'm hoping I can keep the momentum going this month.  The plan for April:
1.  Finish the hexie blob.
2.  Quilt the Once Upon a Time flimsy.
3.  Start working on something for the Lowell Quilt Festival.

  1. I seriously cannot wait to see that Hexi Blob mini finished.

  2. ^ What she said! Looks great :)

  3. These are all great. You did a lovely job quilting that pretty UFO. I can't wait to see how you quilt the fairy tale top!

  4. Great projects! Love your pattern for "Once upon a time", beautifully showcases the prints.
    Of course your quilting is awesome on the pinwheel quilt.
    Your hand quilting is simply superb. One of my to do list ;).

  5. I love how the Once Upon a Time quilt turned out. Just adorable! Yesterday I finished a top from that book as well, with the Typewriters. So much fun! Can't wait to see it all quilted. And go you with the productive month!

  6. Luv the quilting on the pinwheel quilt!
