March Wrap up -- for the link ups

So this month I had a grand total of 4 finishes
How Mack Unwinds
Sunday in the Park
PGB scrappy 

I also made 20 blocks for Kevin the Quilter's Valor block drive, meaning that I used a total of 15 yards of fabrics from the stash this month -- this brings my yearly total to 55+ yards. 

On the fabric non buying front I am not doing great and have bought small bits throughout the month mostly for projects but a few items were because I wanted them. I did use my gift certificate earlier this month on some splurge fabric but I already have a plan and many friends to go with it so I am hoping to move this into the WIP pile soon.

Now here's some other things I've been working on for the variety of other link ups that I am doing.

Gypsy Wife QAL
I have made amazing strides in making blocks and have a few more extra blocks to go and then assembly. I will probably remake my Perishing block using the paper piecing method because I'm not super happy with it. Here are the blocs sorted by section
and here are the blocks for this month.

Library Challenge
scout quilt -- needs quilting and binding 

Sound Garden -- needs quilting and binding

New Stuff
Clam shell Mini -- This one is for a very special person.
Triangle QAL -- a triangle quilt has been on the list for a while now so I decided why not?
Day at the Beach -- scrap Bin quilt

So what are the goals for April?
- finish scout
- finish sound garden
- finish Clam Shell mini
- make progress on triangles quilt
- baste and complete Day at the beach
- assemble the Gypsy Wife (or at least part of it)
- make some string blocks or purge the strings
- start working on rock N romance Swoon
- purge more fabric from my stash


  1. Lovely finishes and a super April list.

  2. Wow, you have been super busy!! Great job. Your SLSB looks awesome!! What an adorable finish :) Wonderful!!

  3. Pretty finishes. Nice WIPs. You have been sew busy and accomplished ... :) Pat

  4. Love the fabrics for your triangle QAL

  5. Wow! Four finishes this month. You have been busy! Can't wait to see your finishes for this month. Beautiful quilts :)

  6. I love your pull for the triangle qal!

  7. I am really shocked by how much you've done! Your fabrics for the Triangle QAL are fantastic, can't wait to see how they come together!

  8. Oh, I like your scrap quilt with the black! Great job :)

  9. Super stuff as always! Love the yellow and black triangle quilt coming up. The shell mini is looking SO good! I'm loving it! How is sewing them? For me, the problem on that one would be figuring how to quilt. Maybe Kelly would have an insight (I'd ask her unless I was just going to hand quilt the curves... oh yea, nevermind! :P) As usual, you get a golden Quilter's OA award! ;)

  10. The bindings you have chosen for each of the four quilts enhance each one, and that's lovely fabric for your triangle quilt.

  11. Congrats on all your finishes. I love the single star on the second quilt. Good luck on your goals this month.

  12. So many lovely finishes and so many inspiring projects on the go...well done.

  13. Your finishes are wonderful, Katie! You have been busy! Loving your WIP's... Especially the clam shell quilt. And the grey/yellow/black pull for the triangle quilt along is going to look incredible! Looking forward to seeing your progress in the coming month!

  14. Busy,busy! Lovely finishes,and WIP's too! Love the color combo you have chosen for the triangle quilt.

  15. Wow you are a busy person, beautiful work!

  16. Those are terrific finishes and some interesting projects for April. Good luck with the progress.

  17. What great finishes! Did you ever figure out a paper piecing block for the Pershing block? It was a beast of a block to do!

  18. Holy Hannah you are a busy girl! Loving all of your projects! Thanks for linking up with The Library Project! I have bought a few bits of fabric too lately, even though I am fasting. But I have given myself a pass becase it could be A LOT worse :)
