April One Monthly Goal

So, my quilt guild is having a paint chip challenge.  You draw a bag and in it is a paint hip with three colors.  You need to use those exact colors and one additional of your choosing.  I have completed my top, but don’t really like it (No, it is not the pineapples.  I like those).  I am hoping some quilting and a different color binding will make me like it more.

That brings me to the pineapples.  I want to do some free motion quilting that I have not watermark_2019-04-03-14-44-47.jpgdone before, so I am making some loud happy placements for my dining room.  I will use them to practice the quilting for my paint chip challenge quilt.

So for my One Monthly Goal, for April, I plan on having four completed placemats.  Hopefully by then I will feel comfortable quilting my paint chip challenge quilt.

I am using some fat quarters.  I love these.  They are so bright WaterMark_2019-04-03-14-45-11and happy.  It makes me smile.  I love the flamingos and pineapples.

More Dog bones for My April One Monthly Goal

20170401_135727_resizedSo, this month, I plan on quilting, trimming and binding this piece.  This one is for Kevin’s nightstand.  These three dog bones are  tied to him.  The middle one is Ohio State, of course.  We (especially Kev) are Ohio State fans.  The light colored plain one is actually a shirt he wore that got a tear in it in a place that could not be easily repaired.  Since it was a nice shirt and 100% cotton, I figured what the heck.  Then the last dog bone is dog bone fabric.  I have turned him into a dog lover, so it is appropriate.  Not a big giant project like last month, but still something that needs finished.  I am still piecing the one for my nightstand and then one for his dresser.  I did not use the cling wrap like last time.  I created a template and traced my dog bones on it.  Seems way better than trying to pick plastic out for hours like I did for the last piece.
