It seems like it has been forever since I was able to set a goal or two for myself for the month so April will be a new start for me.
I am setting a goal to make a new quilt for my grandson and his wife. I’m hoping by the end of the month they will be moved in to a new home. I have been looking at patterns and books but can’t seem to find anything that tempts me. Where is my inner squirrel, Samantha, when I need her?
If you have a suggestion for a fat quarter friendly quilt, I’d love to hear of it. Please, do leave me a comment.
I am also hoping to have a quilt started or even finished for Grace and her new big girl bed but haven’t yet decided on fabrics or a pattern. I am tempted after quilting this beauty for one of my new quilters:
My granddaughter moved to be closer to her brother and sister-in-law after Clarke passed away. She has decided that she also needs a new quilt for her new home and to celebrate her new job. She had interviewed for 6 jobs before moving and was offered all of them. I’m pretty proud of her. She has photos of my finished flimsies and is making a choice from them. It will be interesting to see what she chooses and if I need to add to the quilt to fit her bed.
So the goal is to make one complete quilt, plan another, and if I can get to the studio, quilt one UFO on the long arm before I head to Alberta for my great granddaughter’s memorial service. I do have several days tied up with helping to prepare for my Guild’s annual fundraiser which we are able to hold finally after the pandemic having shut us down for two years.
I’m sure I can make I quilt since I have such a good reason for getting it done and a deadline.
Thank you for reading my post. I enjoy sharing some of my thoughts and plans with you. Carol
