    JWard: Love your quilt. The neutral color scheme would lend itself to so many decors. Michele: What a couple of beauties. Yellow is really bright and cheery. Isn't it funny how you go through "color periods". I have been going through a turquoise stage. I think I pretty much used every piece in my stash.

    Don't really think this qualifies for a UFO but I began it Jan. 3 and finished last stitch of binding today. That means that I can concentrate on at least one UFO for now, anyhow.

    My crazy cat quilt idea...in progress.
    She who dies with the most fabric, didn't sew fast enough!

    #4 UFO done!

    I finished another UFO. Smallish...more of a baby type. It really doesn't qualify as a quilt as it's only two layers. I backed it in fleece. This one is going to a person with a rare disease that sometimes occurs after surgery. It affects the dominant hand/arm of the person and even a breeze blowing on that arm can cause pain. So I wanted to keep it light and used fleece on the back so it will be soft. Small so she can easily take it wherever she goes..Air conditioning is common here, so I hope this helps with that. Usually she wears a covering over the arm and hand. Hope I can find the thread for posting the pictures for the finished UFOs. Have a good Easter, everyone!
    Oh duh, you can see it partially finished in my avatar!

    More great finishes, everyone.

    jward- congrats on such a grand finish. I really like the modern looking quilts like this one.... really nice for a guy, too. I struggle making guy quilts. It just looks elegant to me.

    michelle-- yup, you're in a yellow mood. I must like yellow, too because I've made a few with yellow. Yours are so bright and cheery.... yeah. The white squares in that first one really make things 'pop'.... nice. The three dudes is really catchy...love it. Is it a scrappy? I need to make a scrappy... just am so nervous about making them..... a little OCD here.

    Sandy- Love it, love it, love it. You did an amazing job on this one. I've watched a little while you've been putting it together and I'm totally impressed. WoW! That is one quilt you're going to treasure for a long time. I know I would. It's amazing.

    Coopah- I'm so sorry that your friend has to deal with such an uncomfortable condition. It sounds like your quilt is the perfect solution.... so sweet of you to think of fleece to help out with the pain. Quilters are the best.

    I've had two busy weeks in a row.... looking like it might be a crazy month. I'm still working on the lap quilt for my SIL that I thought would be a quick finish..... that's not happening although I'm getting close to the end now. But everyone else is taking up my slack..... thanks. And, have a great Easter, my friends.

    Sandy: I think pretty much what ever we choose of call a UFO is the definition. Your cat quilt is such a fun project, especially love the center. Coopah: Such a thoughtful gift! The colors are beautiful. Your cute quilt inspector looks like he approves. Congratulations on everyone's productivity and finishes. Still having fun but flitting from one project to another. I splurged on some spray adhesive to use on the sandwiches, just waiting for a dry day to hang a clothesline in the yard. I have four bedsize ( at least 92 X 92 ) both front and back pieced waiting for the weather and a step ladder.

    I finished another quilt this month. It is a small one and at this time I do not have any plans for it. I also made some baby blankets for my new DGS and DGD, twins! The twins have an older sister so there were plenty of pinks and yellows but no blue ones, however every girls should have one of her own. I am in the process of making them matching quilts.

    Oh jward..... cute, cute, cute. I love doing little quilts. They are so much less stress. I wish the picture was a little larger 'cause I can't see what the figures are.... but that's okay. Very nice to have another finish off the pile.

    Another month down! Time is going so quickly I can't believe it. We had 18 finishes for April, which brings our total for the year thus far 116. WOW!! Good job on the finishes as well as all of the work that is being done working TOWARD finishes (that's an accomplishment on its own).
