April OMG 2018

April brings new goals (or old ones brought forward) for the OMG challenge at Elm Street Quilts.

I am starting a new quilt this month.  I found a free pattern on Craftsy called Butterfly Garden by the Red Boot Quilt Company.  I am using the same fabrics that I used when I made the Sugar Town pattern.  This quilt will also be for a certain little girl, who just happens to be the cousin of the certain little girl that I am giving Sugar Town to.

I have most of the pieces cut, so I am hoping for some serious sit-down time with the sewing machine.  I want to have the interior of the flimsy finished by the end of the month.  At this time, I am undecided about the borders and the applique (although the applique drew me to the pattern in the first place).

I follow Jenny’s blog over at Elefantz…she nourishes my soul.  She helps keep me centered.  In my perfect world, I would be a full-time homemaker.  Maybe someday….

Anyhoooo…I was inspired by Jenny’s post (and the fact that my sweet Hubby is repainting the laundry room) to create a new peg bag.  My bag is over 30 years old.  There is nothing wrong with it, but I think it would be fun to make one to decorate the laundry room and be useful at the same time.

My next goal for the month is to come up with a pattern and get the fabric cut and ready to sew.  I may spend a lot of time down the rabbit hole (also known as Pinterest).

I will also be working on the RSC18 Squared Away Sampler.  I need to make three blocks in yellow and gold (the colors announced for April).

I would like to make more progress on quilting the friendship row by row, too.

Spring is here, and I hope to be outside more, so we’ll see how much I can accomplish with this month’s goals.

I am linking up with OMG (One Monthly Goal) at Elm Street Quilts. Click on the link and see what other goals are set for April. I find it inspiring and motivating; perhaps you will too!
