At the end of four months I have finally caught up with my blocks of the month and have begun the finishing of a WIP row quilt.
This is my April twinkler and I can finally say that I made it with only one ripping and recutting. I don’t dare think I can do one without any problems, but I’m getting closer. Here are the four.
The other final block I completed was the April slab block, which was far more fun than doing the star. Do I prefer the easy way out?
And here are my four slab blocks.
The 16-patch blocks turned out to be fun, even though the February one became orange instead of pink with brown, and so it is now officially the April block.
I mentioned that I keep an ongoing list of my projects. When I finish one I reward myself with a little happy face emoticon at each stage. For the RSC blocks I use little sailboats, squares, stars, etc. For the final completion I give myself a lovely pink flower. Guess I’m in my second childhood a bit these days!
That is only half of my list, but it really works for me. My next WIP started with a random drawing of 90 HSTs from Summer at Easy Quilter. I turned them into a lot of pinwheels and have worked them into rows. I have started piecing the rows together and it should not take long to finish, I hope.
