Fresh Sewing Day April

I have a lovely collection of finishes to look back on from March that includes two projects for my husband and a couple of long-awaited quilting projects coming together. 


This Spring has been challenging for me with interview preparation, travel, and recovery. Funny thing is, to de-stress I often sew so I got a lot done! I'm pleased with all of these projects and happy that Dave got in on the crafty action this month to let me know he wanted a few things. 

Next month I'm looking forward to a couple of new bees starting up, finishing the Amsterdam quilt and a knitted shawl in progress, working some more on hand quilting my medallion quilt from last summer, and starting a couple of new quilt tops. 

The next two quilting projects are going to be big projects that are more complex cutting and piecing than I've done so far excepting bee blocks. One will be a quilt-as-you-go project which will give me a chance to practice free motion quilting and the second is going to be a regular quilt top that I will freezer paper piece. (I finally chose a pattern for my Indie quilt!) These projects will of course take a while but I'm looking forward to getting them going.

  5. I can't get over how awesome that laptop cover is! If your husband ever decides he doesn't like it or something, you know where to send it, haha! :) I also love your Amsterdam quilt. Super fun.
