End of April

 Boy did this month fly by.  We are ending the month with April Showers.  I hope it brings May flowers.

Here are some projects I've been working on.

1.  Monthly Mini.

I really enjoyed making this one.  The flying geese are trimmings from my Ready for Spring quilt. 

2.  Celebrating Mrs. Brown.

I needed a simple block to make this month.  The original block was just too complicated.  I have no qualms about substituting blocks.  After all it is my quilt.

3.  Mrs. Lincoln's Quilt.

I'm getting excited that the end is coming.  I love all the quilts.  My friend Julie at is also making this quilt.

4.  Aunt Em's September Sun

This is a new BOW that just started.  Since Autumn is my favorite time of year I just couldn't pass this one up.

I finished up more Pat Sloan's Home Is blocks and Socialities blocks but i didn't get photos. 

The APQ UFO for May is Number 9.  That happens to be my Bringing Home the Tree Quilt.  I only have one row made and need to make an additional 3 rows.  I hope I can get this one done. 

My UFO for April was Barbara Brackman's Yankee Notions.  I did get the top put together with sashings and borders.  I'm pretty happy with the way it turned out.

I thank you so much for stopping by.  I hope you found something you liked.

Hugs, Cathy

Great job on repurposing the flying geese from another project for your April mini. Your continuing monthly projects always are lovely. Love those orange colors for Aunt Em.

Such a lot to see. It's always fun to see what you are working on and the progress you have made. The mini is so cute, I love the border fabric. Mrs. Lincoln is going to be so lovely when you get it all put together.
