March Quilting Accomplishments

March proved to be a very productive month for me in the quilting studio! I've been getting lots done and finished up several UFO's which feels great.
I finished quilting and sewing the binding on as well as the hand sewing on the binding of the Twister tablerunner.
I made about 8 receiving blankets for Mikaela, some for daycare and some just because.

Made this tablerunner Quilt As You Go for a sample for FC.

Made this mini diaper bag from scraps of fat quarters mom had made a larger schlep bag out of. It's the perfect size for short trips.

I also got about 60 Crown Royal bags cut out for my little brother's quilt. I hope to get more done this month and maybe get started on the actual top. I also spent quite a bit of time putting away the fabric I received from my mom and sorting out and organizing her UFO's. I figure there are about 30 UFO's and quite a few that aren't started, but are projects. I've finished about quite a few so far, so I'm making progress.
The only goal I didn't accomplish was another snowflake twister table topper, but I'll have to work on that later. I just wasn't feeling the motivation with the nice weather. I'm back at work and so far Mikaela is doing well at daycare and work is going good. It's nice to have a routine.
I got 91 hours in, but a lot of it was before I went to work and the few hours every evening Paul watches her so I can sew. Quilting has really been my therapy and I find so much relaxation in finishing up mom's UFO's.
My goals for April include:
Quilting and Binding Quilty Table runner
QAYG table runner sample
Hot Mat samples
Bind Boots quilt

You're getting an amazing amount done with a new baby in the house! I am impressed! Hope you're enjoying working on your mom's UFOs and look forward to seeing more of them.
