April Goal

While I have completed a couple of things during Feb and March, I'm really hoping to move one particular project along this month, a quilt top I almost completed last August.

A couple of friends and I went to a local quilt show in May 2015 and bought a pattern for an appliqued quilt. One friend went with the kit that accompanied the pattern, the other friend went with her own choices, also mostly pink based. I was keen to try this lemon/turquoise/green combination. We were able to get together and encourage each other along.
This is the top so far:

In terms of completing the top to a flimsy, there's not much left to do, just completing those pieced sashings and then borders. Sounds quite easy when I say it like that, so I'm not quite sure why I have left it alone until now, it may be something about Christmas and New Year coming along with other projects. That and the thought of quilting it!

I now have a new machine though, a Brother NV410 which I'm just getting to know, so this month seems like a good time to get this one sandwiched and quilted. 

Maybe my lack of a deadline also contributes to not having completed this - it is destined for my niece's 1st birthday, which is not until November - hence my delay. 

But I'm linking up with One Monthly Goal with the hope that it might help my accountability too. 
So we'll see how I go.

Until next time,


  1. What a lovely design. I like it in the colors you chose.

    1. Thanks, looking forward to the quilting that will really help it pop too.

  2. Darling quilt! Too cute not to finish it.

    1. Thanks Joanie, hoping this month is the one!
