March / April Goals

Well, this was a very weird month, but I got a lot of sewing done. The weather was mostly chilly, windy, and rainy, so it was easy to stay in. I earned a rare 100% on my sewing goals.

March Goals:

  1. Quilt and bind Spring Flowers Quilt. Yes, here!
  2. Complete Clue #3 for Scrap Fantasy Medallion. Yes.
  3. Piece top for new Beach quilt. Yes.
  4. Quilt and bind Beach Quilt. Yes, here!

Bonus: Made “surgical” masks, Pinwheel quilt.

April Goals:

  1. Complete Clue #4 for Scrap Fantasy Medallion.
  2. Make donation blocks for Kat’s March/April Covered in Love drive.
  3. Cover the cushion for my deck settee.
  4. Make a top for Beach Quilt #7.

Outside may keep me from meeting these April goals, but we’ll see.

Stay well, and work on your goals!
