March has ended and I accomplished my March OMG (One Monthly Goal) to finish this Hideaway Baby Quilt that Fat Quarter Shop provided me with. Unfortunately, I did not link up in time, but it is more about setting goals and getting things finished!
For April, my OMG is to make 20 pencil pouches for my 5th graders as end of the year presents. I finished pulling all of the fabrics this morning and placed an order with Zipit Zippers on Etsy--they have great prices, reasonable shipping rates, and quick delivery. My fabrics are cut at 5.5" x 10.5" and I use nine inch zippers. Here is the link, if you want to join in:
Most of what I worked on for March were sew alongs, but I did have one Drop Everything And Make It (DrEAMi). I had some leftover half square triangles from the Clementine Sew Along, so I made this little zip pouch for a friend. Check out what everyone else was tempted with here:
Yesterday for Spelling Bee Saturday, we were supposed to make our "T" blocks. I did get those completed and moved onto the remaining letter blocks.
I am trying to make my Spelling Bee Quilt really scrappy with none of the letter fabrics repeated.
I think the rainbow of colors in the quilt will be amazing!
On the home front, it is my Spring Break. I am taking a walking foot quilting class tomorrow and Tuesday. I have to go to Grand Junction for it which is an hour plus each way, so I hope it is worth it!
My hubby is putting a new roof on our shop--the shop is 1200 square feet so it is a big job, but needs to be done. There goes our tax refund!
