My April TO-DO List and Saturday Sharing Day

I'm a week into April but I wanted to give a list of some things I want to-do this month, linking up with Pigtales and Quilts.

I just finished a rag quilt that I have been wanting to make since January 2012, when I laid it out for a customer.   She wanted a queen size black and white rag quilt with matching shams but she wanted me to throw in some random reds.  I showed her two options of reds.  She picked this one:




But I just loved the other red print I picked.  It was a black, white and red Hawaiian quilt print and here was the layout back in 1/2012:






And here's the quilt/throw I finished yesterday:



On to My April TO-DO List.  Here's what I have in mind to do this month.

1.  Make a set of quilted nesting/stacking blocks for a friend using Winnie the Pooh fabrics

2.  Make another set of quilted nesting/stacking blocks for a friend using Star Wars fabrics

3.  Make an Elementary School t-shirt quilt  for a teacher friend who is retiring in June.

4.  Hopefully get another order for a t-shirt quilt that a lady asked me to do yesterday.

5.  Make some rag quilted baby bibs for my etsy shop.


 This has really helped me to focus on what I need to get done so Thank you Thearica!

  3. Awesome quilt. I love your black, red and white color choices! Both are great and it would have been difficult for me to decide. Thanks for sharing and good luck with your April list!

    1. I'm glad I didn't have to decide. I always like it when my customers decide for me. The hardest thing for me is picking the right colors. It's the thing I fret about the most. Thank you DeAnna!

    1. I got almost every one of those fabrics at Joann fabrics and the prints are all cottons. I used flannels on the 2nd and 3rd layers.
