April Makes

April was a fairly good month on the sewing front - lots and lots of bee blocks saw me caught up (finally), and I managed to finish a quilt and two cushions. Well, the Architextures one was technically a March finish, but I couldn't show you until yesterday, so let's say it's an April finish?



1. Reflected Textures Pillow, 2. winged square, 3. Bronwyn's block #2, 4. Nicky's April blocks, 5. Boat block, 6. Bronwyn's Block #1, 7. Charlotte's block #2, 8. Charlotte's block #1, 9. Sashiko cushion, 10. Mario full11. Not available12. Not available

A lot of my April sewing time has been devoted to piecing together and starting quilting my Retro Flowers - so although it's still a work in progress, it's getting closer to the finish line :o) I'm really hoping it will be done in time for the Blogger's Quilt Festival this month! It's also going to be my May goal in A Lovely Year of Finishes (and it's on my FAL list, so triple whammy!)
