CG&GQC and OPAM Completions & APRIL TO DOS


March was another productive month!
One Dozen Pillowcases donated to the Con Kerr Cancer Pillowcase Project.
A summer blanket/quilt--lightweight, pieced top, flannel back and no batting for a new baby girl born to one of my husband's firefighters and his wife.
A machine Appliqued Pillow, for a very good friend, made from a McKenna Ryan pattern.
A vinyl covered fabric bib (an Amy Butler Fabric) for my granddaughter, Gigi

I also finished two blocks: one for a block exchange, Live Piecefully and one for a quilt for a woman I work with at the quilt shop. During March I have been knitting a cardigan sweater for Gigi-I have all the pieces done (2 fronts, back and sleeves); now I just have to sew them all together.

PROJECTS TO DO DURING APRIL

1. This adorable spring dress for my granddaughter, Gigi2. I hope to finish this quilt, Twisted Star, by Sue Bouchard, a Quilt in a Day pattern, which I started last year (mine is in red, white and blue patriotic fabrics:
3. A table runner or two, including his one by McKenna Ryan
I may end up doing more if I am really productive at my next Brown Bag Quilt Retreat which is this coming weekend (April 9th-11th) !! YEAH FOR QUILT RETREATS!

Love the quilt that's in the picture for the firefighters baby.

How's that twisted quilt coming along? I'm wondering if it's easy since it's an Eleanor Burns pattern. I have the same pattern but I haven't even purchased fabric for it yet. Good luck with the rest of your Apri projects.
