April OMG....

Do you ever just feel like working on something? No? Really?..... Guess it is just me then.

I am in the mood to work on this UFO from 2011. I went to the Vermont Quilt Festival without the kids (who were 3 and 2 at the time) and decided to pick up the booth hop blocks from 12 vendors. I had done the blocks and got the finishing kit and then it sat in the waiting drawer. What... you don't have a chest of drawers that have the UFO projects waiting for when you feel like working on them? I knew these were in there. I went back and found a few blog posts about them as well...... here, here and here.

This is where I stand. 12 Blocks Completed.

Fabrics from the finishing kit.

We will see what happens! My goal for April is to get this to a top. It would be lovely to get it completed....but I'll shoot for a completed top first.

I'll link up with the April OMG once it opens up. If anyone has made a quilt from these blocks, please share a photo of your completed top.

Oh I not only have a draw full, but a space in the spare closet with pieces at various stages ready to be worked on..I guess they'll have to yell my name so loudly that I won't be able to resist before I get to them...if only to shut them up...

I love how those blocks look--I can see why you want to finish it in April..good luck.

Last night I dreampt that I was playing a scale on my flute--haven't touched it in over 30 years (I minored in flute while being a piano major in Music College)--hubby is encouraging me to pick it up again--good for the lungs he says, and I think he may be
long tones from his tenor sax and then tootling long tones (well not that long as yet) from my flute--I wonder what the neighbors think...;000

That looks like a great one to pull out, especially since you have everything you need to finish up the top! I do have that happen sometimes, too - get an idea and just go with it!
