April, How'd It Get to Be April????

I just looked at the calendar and it's April 3rd. How did it get to be April?

This year is flying already. I was going to reflect on what I got done in March, but I don't think I got all that much done. I can say that I have done more quilting in the first 3 months of this year than I did all last year and probably the year before. That's a good thing. Just wish I could push more stuff out the door. I keep trying to remind myself that I'm a working wife and mom and there are other things that need my time too.

This week I have been very busy. I'm working on bags for the photographer and hope to have about 15 handed off on Saturday. I started 2 new projects (instead of finishing 2 old projects). The stash of Batiks was pulled out, ironed and even cut up. The other huge stash of fabric in my collection is Red, White & Blue (Patriotic theme). I pulled out all of the scraps from 2 stack & whack quilts and cut them into strips and started making string blocks. I started out using paper as my foundation and that turned into a big mess so I switched to muslin. That is working MUCH better.
I will be sure to post some pictures this weekend. Or maybe even tonight, who knows.

Today is the start of Quilt Shop Hop here in the KC area. I have been telling myself no all along, but I think I might have to sneak out this afternoon. Just know that there is a fabric shopping frenzy going on and I'm not part of it, is KILLING me.

Blogger is doing crazy stuff this morning. So sorry for spelling mistakes and no links.

Pictures of my 2 projects from above. I still want to make 12 more red, white & blue blocks before deciding on the placement. I'm not so sure about the IN & OUT pattern. I like the pattern, but my colors are very WILD. Sorry reminds of my college days and someone blowing technicolor chunks.
