April: A Lovely Year of Finishes ~ Goal Setting Party

Happy Spring. . and happy April!

It's time to think about another month of 'A Lovely Year of Finishes'
One month, one project, one finish for 12-months. 2013 a year of lovely finishes.

Do you need a primer of what 'A Lovely Year of Finishes' actually is?
and my awesome partner on this project
Melissa of Sew Bittersweet Designs has a reference page found here.


My April #ALYoF project is finishing up this baby quilt for a baby boy on the east coast.

The step-daughter comes home with pink hair and this is what gets made. #quiltingkeepsmesane

Should be easy as it's zipped together, spray based, and now 1/2 way machine quilted as of 9:30 p.m. March 31.

It's going to be awesome to have a finish and so early!

What do you have planned for your lovely April finish?
Remember you get to choose what you consider a project and a finish. This is all about you and not as we can easly do complare ourselves to others.
Add your blog post or flickr photo (with appropriate descriptions) to the linky party below.  Make sure you also link back here so other people can join in the fun!

**Please note, the linky party is the same here and over at Melissa, so there is no need to enter twice **

  1. I like the combination of blues and greens in this quilt!

  2. I'm pretty sure you'll get this one finished, hehe, such wonderful color combinations.

  3. Looks like you're definitely well on your way! I'll link up later this week :o)

  4. This is such a great quilt! I really like how you kept the same fabric in each block, but surrounded it with a variety of fabrics (dots, stripes, solids) in all different colours and fun!
    I'm sure you will finish way ahead of the mid month check in!

  5. Shanna ... the baby quilt is looking good ... :)

    I have linked up. Hope to complete my goal this month ... :) Pat
