April projects

Just a quick post for my April projects since it took way more time than I anticipated this evening to set up my new printer in my sewing room.

First up, my Saturday Sampler blocks for this month. This time it's trees with a lot of flying geese in those trunks! There will be four blocks all together as I will be making two of one particular block. I haven't done too many flying geese so this should be interesting.

Next up will be to get started on the Wedding Ring quilt. I'm shooting for finishing 10 full squares and 5 half squares a month for six months in order to make this more manageable. I have to piece a lot of these arcs together before I can applique them to the squares and this way I won't get too overwhelmed by it. Unfortunately, this means I won't be able to give this to our niece right away but I'd rather give her something that is well made than a hurry up job full of mistakes (and I'm really prone to them, too, when trying to do something too fast.)

I love wedding ring quilts, and I don't see that many anymore....which will make this even more precious when you give it to her. She'll love it, no matter when she receives it.

Oh those are great goals. I know they will be done to perfection as always so there is no worry your niece will have an imperfect quilt. You are an inspiration!
Happy Sewing♥

Looks like those blocks are going to be pretty - and I'm drooling over the wedding ring quilt! I love the 30's prints! Wishing you a great month of sewing!
