April;s One Monthly Goal - Block Box

April's One Monthly Goal was to reduce the stack of Blocks in my Block box and make something useful..... and...... to finish March's OMG ( March just snuck away from me!!)




Here is the original OMG post for April - just in case you are interested:


April OMG Post

That ( to the left) is the overflowing Block Box.... so I dug in... I started laying them on the design wall and....












Ta-Da!!!

I got SIX tops done!! and 4 of them are quilted and ready for my sew group
to add the binding.... cuz they like to do that!

and who am I to deny them the pleasure!!! Right???




the two in the back being held up by the Big Strong Men
are still tops - 

the other 4 are quilted - and now I want to go take closer pics so you will believe me....



This is now what my box looks like!





AND!!
I already showed you this - but just in case you missed it

I FINISHED my March One Monthly Goal too
BONUS!!




That's All Folks......

Well except now I have to pull a May OMG project.... decisions....

I started thinking about May as soon as my April was done too! Your quilts look great. What quilt pattern did you use? All over freehand? Pantographs?

Great work Alycia! Those beautiful blocks are on my list of 'to do's in the future but now I'm obsessed with the 1" nine patches from your mystery -A-5. I keep trying to use up those 1" squares and every time I turn around they spontaneously multiply. I wonder what happened overnight down there in my sewing room?
As always, thank you for the inspiration.

Good job on your goals. Beautiful quilts....and it looks like there's a few more blocks in that box so we will be seeing more wonderful quilts.
