April Finish

April has been a tough month for getting stuff done.  I was pretty sick most of the month so I really did not get as much done as I would have liked.

I worked on UFO #1 but it is a huge project so I did not even come close to completing it.

This last weekend I realized that it is almost May and I have a deadline to get my 'guilt' quilt done.  I hate to admit it but several years ago when I was attending the local quilt guild I was given a charity quilt to piece into a top.  I am sorry to say I found it last year buried on a shelf with other UFO's when I was pulling stuff out of my sewing room.  At the time I could not work on it since the reason I was pulling everything out of the sewing room was because wood floors were going down.  I 'found' it again before Christmas, let's just say that 'life happens while you are making other plans'.  I made progress at the time but still did not get all the block sewn together.  I put it on my list of UFO's to finish this year.  This next weekend is the guild's quilt show.  I decided that I needed to get that top together and drop it off at the show.  I have not been able to attend guild meeting in probably seven maybe eight years because my work hours changed.  So this quilt top is long over due...that is why it is my 'guilt' quilt.  Every time I have run across it in the last year I have felt guilty that it has taken me so long to complete.

This was on the list of UFO's for this year but it was not #1....until I switched them.
