April Goals

After finishing only one UFO in March, I decided to recommit myself to the quest of finishing more UFOs in April.  I have chosen 3 projects to work on this month. They are exactly the same and need backing prepared, layering, basting and quilting.  They are the three Tetris tops that I pieced over Super Bowl weekend.

I enjoyed making the blocks as part of the Tetris Quilt Along at Happy Quilting last summer, but once I finished the blocks I wasn't sure what I was going to do with them.  Over Super Bowl weekend, I participated in a quilt along with the Sunshine Quilters online charity group.  The group is devoted to making quilts for WAS (Wrap a Smile) and WTIL (Wrap Them in Love)  .The quilts are given to children  undergoing cleft palate surgery as well as to children in orphanages worldwide.  At last, the blocks could have a home.  The tops have been sitting for 2 months waiting for backings to be made so they can be finished.  This is the month it will happen.

I am linking up with Carrie at Passion for Applique and A Lovely Year of Finishes at Sew Bitter Sweet Designs so that I will have some accountability.

  1. Accountability. Oh what a wonderful thing!

    Your Tetris quilts turned out really well. I wasn't really sure how they would look when you showed the blocks earlier but I like them now.
