April has been a very productive month for me. I made this cute Easter/Spring table runner.
When I was home for Easter my mom and I tied this quilt to put in my car. My great-aunt and my great grandma made the top and since I'm the quilter in the family, mom thought I'd appreciate it the most.
I also finished this Valentine's quilt from . . . last year?
I did give in and start on the Chevron quilt, but I'm waiting for my walking foot to come before I go any further with it. It will involve minky . . . and I'm a little nervous. The lady at the fabric store said to pin a lot and that a walking foot is helpful. In the meantime I've been working on other long forgotten projects trying to get things done. Go me.

On my list of quilts I'd like to make is a Chevron Quilt. I think they are ADORABLE and I don't think they look too difficult. There is a big debate going on in my head. It goes something like this. side 1 "Don't start a new project you have 15 that aren't finished" side 2 "BUT THEY'RE SO CUTE AND EASY YOU'D TOTALLY FINISH IT!!"

I have a feeling a happy medium can be found. Maybe I'll make a deal with myself. Finish 2 (putting me a head for my one a month) and then you can start a new one.
I'm really in a go through all my fabric mood. I guess it's better than a "let's go to the fabric store" mood.
This week is looking very open maybe I'll get stuff done. Run and quilt. Sounds like great Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday and Friday night plans.

Here are the two Chevrons I just love. Which to do first . . .

I love the colors in this one here and it's very summery

And this one is very . . . peaceful?

p.s. remember how I was never really engaged and it was just an April Fool's joke? I remember that. :)
