April Accomplishments

This was a very good month as far as accomplishments and sewing time went. Of course, having a whole weekend of sewing time helped a little bit!

Here's what I got done in April:
- FQ Quilt top piecing completed and decided on borders (picture coming when borders are on)
- Big baby nine patch blanket for baby Kate
- Easter egg table runner (completed before Easter!)
- Quilted mom's charity baby quilt on the HQ16
- Quilted Jack's wedgie placemat
- Met lots of my online quilting friends in Cincinnati and attended the St. Jude's Retreat with them!
- Butterfly fling quilt top
- 2 log cabin blocks
- Block roll-up
- Runaround bag
- Completed 1/3 of the blocks for the king sized quilt (pic to come when they are all done!)

My total sewing time was 45.75 hours (25.5 were at retreat!) - my most hours in a month so far. So far this year, I've averaged around 20 hours/month, and I did the same this month at home. I am enjoying tracking all I've done!

For May, I don't have many goals for a couple reasons: burned out a little from April, season finales of several shows that I will be watching from the couch, and a family vacation at the end of the month (don't think I can get my machine on the plane with 2 kids, 2 car seats, and a stroller!). However, I would like to do at least the following:
- Load up and quilt another quilt on the HQ16
- Finish Sara's quilt
- Add to the blocks for Nick's QOV, especially since he arrived home safely on Monday night! Hooray, hallelujah, and gotta get moving now!
Hope you all had a great month and have another one ahead. I will catch up with you again in June...and by catch up, I mean that I will lamely attempt to finish half of what most of you prolific gals complete!
