One of my sewing friends said she was doing the Nightingale Quilt Along and I fell in love with the pattern. Even though I didn't need another project, this has been a fun one to piece. I have 6 blocks done and 2 more in progress. The hardest challenge was getting the arrows to go the same direction, which isn't always possible. I'm using Glamping Gypsies fabric from Pearl Louise Designs.

May the 4th be with you - Press to the Dark Side... All the fun sayings for May. For only being 1 week into May, so far it has been productive. I made 5 more "heart" Sweet Pea Pods for my Cardiac Rehab friends when they finish.
Each year I plan to make a quilt for the kids teacher's gift for Teacher Appreciation Week. This year I really struggled to find something that they would each like (because I don't know them well and nothing on their intro info gave me a clue). I did a bit of FB stalking to get a clue and asked the kids.
For my daughter's main teacher I made a Random Shuffle quilt with minkee on the back. Glamping Gypsies is the fabric. She loves camping and biking.
Having been a teacher myself I know how much work goes into teaching. I am so appreciative of the work these teachers do and this is my way of showing it.
April was a busy month in the sewing studio. I was busy finishing the quilts for the teachers, but in secret, so they wouldn't see them on my social media. I also finished this t-shirt quilt, based on Angela Walter's new pattern. I didn't add borders and did adjust the sizes.
In this Month: 12.25 yards
Out this Month: 44 yards
In this Year: 71 yards
Out this Year: 115.23 yards
I'm ahead of the stash 44.25 yards!
I also sewed for 44 hours.

March was a busy month, but I hope to finish up more quilts in April.
This week I have been piecing again. It just seemed to work for me. I pieced all the flying geese and blocks for the SDSU t-shirt quilt I am making and then laid it out. I haven't finished sewing it together yet.

Last week I focused on making a couple bags. This week I am focused on piecing. I started piecing flying geese for an SDSU quilt. I started the next step last night and I needed to trim them. Instead of going to bed, I pieced this Teen Spirit top together. The top went together very quickly. I just need to press it now. I'm not sure who will receive it, but it's my APQ quilt for March and I'm excited it got this far.

Saturday was National Quilting Day and I was lucky enough to get to go to Dad's house to drop off the kids for an overnight stay and found some time to quilt too. I made this t-shirt quilt for his wife and quilted it with a primary King Tut verigated thread.
