April's NewFO's and finishes!

It doesn't look like I did much in April, but, I did.  Instead of making lots of blocks, I hand quilted a quilt.  That takes lots of time.  I finished the hand quilting of this quilt.

I'm in the process of stitching the binding down on this quilt.  It will be a 'finish' soon.  I'm also stitching the binding on another quilt.  Both of these have to be done by the end of this weekend.  Here is the pillowcase I made to go with the other quilt that is almost done.

I also finished the blocks for my little guilds 'box' exchange.  This month was Marilyn's box.  I made 2 sets of 5 blocks for her.

I also got a few blocks for my Harry Potter 'The Project of Doom' made, earlier this month. I'm making 2 of each of these blocks. 

Week #10
 Jennifer, over at Sewhooked, is asking for blocks from this quilt, to be made with a white background, that will be turned into a fundraising charity quilt for Project Linus.  You can find out more about it on her blog, here.  I made 2 different blocks for her.

  1. You have been busy. Love the fat cats quilt!

  2. I'd say you got a lot done! Wow! Hand quilting does take a lot of time but it is worth it - I love the look! And I love your Fat Cats quilt too! ~Jeanne

  3. You did get a lot done! The cats are so cute and those owls are great. I have made one foundation pieced owl but I did it by hand, just cutting the pieces.

  4. You you've gotten alot done, and the hand quilted Fat Cat Quilt is awesome. Love the Harry Potter Owl blocks. Great Job. I'm ready to get back to actual hands on piecing and quilting after writing about it for a month.

    Thanks so much for your visits and comments during this month of AtoZ Writing Challenge.
