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.
