APRIL'S LIST OF CHARMING PROJECTS

Time for the big decision of what projects to pick for completion during April for The Charming Guys & Girls Quilt Club. I have lots to pick from but have narrowed it down and will hope for the best.

#1. I want to machine quilt the "Spring Quilt". I didn't take a photograph of it for the post.

#2. I would like to get the house quilt top done. I started on it yesterday. The pattern is from a Fig Tree Designs book that has all house designs. The quilt pattern uses two fabrics for the 22 houses. I am using 22 different reds. The Coverlet design fabric will be the center of the quilt.
#3. I prepped this small wall hanging called "Noel" and need to do the raw edge machine stitching. The pattern is by Renee Plains. I purchased the pattern about a year ago. Time to do something with it.
#4. I have decided to try tohand applique 20 more of these basket blocks. I don't know how many I have left to do nor how many are already stitched.
#5. I have three wool mats prepped for the hand stitching. I also have a wool candle mat kit not shown here that I would like to add to it. I will give the pattern info in a future post as I don't have it with me here at the moment.
Big wishes to get these projects to the finishing line. But whatever I do get done is one more off the list.

Hope you had a very nice Easter weekend. Come back soon for another visit.

I love your wool mat - very pretty! And it was good to see a picture of you also. I think we all look different in our heads - probably the way we want to look!

Hi, I love your projects. There are so many cute ways to keep busy. May I ask where the little baskets pattern is from. I love basket quilts. These look like a great "take a long" project. Thank you for your help.
