End of April Already?

Where did April go?  I do not know, and I'm once again figuring out how to accomplish my one monthly goal before the end of Saturday.  It should not be too hard, but I have to remember to follow the schedule I have created for myself, which I also consider to be my daily list of goals.  I take the time every Monday to sit down and plan out what I want or need to accomplish for the week.  Sometimes I put too much on, but sometimes I am able to get ahead.  (It really depends how motivated I am, right when I get home from work)

The one thing on my design wall this week is finishing the top for a Dr. Seuss baby quilt.  It is a simple pattern, but it is not going to sew itself!

I have made a little progress since this picture was last taken.  I have sewn the strips in a tube to cut and then take apart to create the design on my drawing, which is a simple diagonal pattern of each fabric.

Once the quilt top is done, I hope to get it quilted on Sunday, renting time on the long arm quilting machine.  I'm thinking of putting "Oh the places you will go" in the middle.  I feel like it is very appropriate for a baby quilt, especially a Dr. Seuss quilt.

Once the quilt top is finished, I have some cute baby shoes I want to cut out, and start to put together. I hope to finish them no later than the end of next week.  (I will share a picture next week)

I can not wait to see what is on everyone else's design wall over at Patchwork Times with Judy, and linking up with Lorna from Sew Fresh Quilts.



  1. I love Dr. Seuss and can't wait to see your baby quilt finished.

  2. Those are some really fun and bright fabric strips. Such a great design idea, too. Looking forward to seeing your progress, Christina!
