    Asimplelife: what a pretty and cheerful quilt. I bet Project Linus will be really happy to receive that one.

    UFO Finish #25 (how I like those "significant" numbers!) is Scrappy HSTs. I have to say that I really fell in love with this one while quilting it. I am not usually comfortable with totally random scrappy and this is pretty close to that for me - I think that's what I love about it! Go figure...

    Wow, 25. Something about it is very crisp and calm even if it is a scrappy. Love scrappies any way they come but can see why a non-scrappy lover would like it.

    Finished this UFO wall hanging up this morning. This started as purely experimental with orphan blocks and I think it turned out pretty neat.

    Kaelyn: It sure did. I especially like the way you quilted it to make the designs just pop.

    asimiplelife--the long winter has given you ample time to get another pretty quilt done!
    Interesting design with the green "experiment". Nice to do something different for a change isn't it?

    Karelyn, that is such an interesting wall hanging - you could keep finding more the longer you look at it. Great work.

    April Finish

    Here is my quilt finish for April...these blocks are from a swap I did with some other ladies on this board when we "finished" our Farmers Wife Pony Club blocks.

    Got a good portion of the quilting done on the one I had picked as my April project, but that got bumped for one that I feel compelled to do for my friend Janet's daughter Misty who was one of the ones in the apartment complex across from the fertilizer plant. Talked to Janet yesterday and Misty is recovering well.

    Mom6: Seems to me, Misty's was the only choice you could make. Quilts are so comforting, and I am sure after that ordeal it is exactly what she needs. Please show us pictures.
    I continue to echo the stars on my April UFO. Rough estimate, there are about 98. Means a lot of hand tieing off of threads. Can't seem to get any rythym going. Complain, complain. I am really okay with my progress.
    Interesting thing I have discovered about my UFOs. I stop in just about exactly the same place everytime. It's when I have all the piecing done, and a few of the rows sewn together. Wonder what that is all about.

    Emma - do you think we might be sisters separated by time and place?? I usually get the top done and can't decide if I want to do borders or not. So into the UFO pile they go.

    My last finish for April under the wire last night - Pastel Tulips. The pattern is from "True Friends" by Art to Heart (Nancy Halvorsen). I bought this in a kit and pieced the top back in 2002 (one of my 1st projects) but my applique fear turned it into a UFO.

    Finally I can say I'm no longer intimidated by machine applique!

    Asimplelife: Love your table runner! Really want to try applique in all its forms. Congrats on the finish and even more on your new skill.
    Still quilting stars on my April UFO, although I can see the light at the end of the tunnel. Just hope its not a train. The quilting on the borders and the binding yet to do.

    I finished 2 table runners this month....they are both Christmas scrappies based off the Flurry pattern by Kate Spain for Moda. It's a free pattern and somewhat addictive. It adapts beautifully to scrappy and using up Christmas scraps. Just a caution...it's easy to get carried away making the presents...

    This one is super long for a Christmas table...more than 6 feet.

    This one is more a normal table runner size. I like to add tags to some of them to be personalized to the family whose table it graces. On this one I used scraps and varied the size/style of the present.
