A glimpse into my quilting journey - projects, tips, techniques, and more.

I made some progress on my April colour challenge yesterday. The first 4 rows are together, and the rest should follow pretty quickly. This has been an easy, fun project. I even managed to get the gold print to go in the same direction. It has a definite horizontal line to the print, I noticed after I started. But fortunately this pattern lends itself nicely to that so I can keep all the centers uniform.
This quilt is based on the pattern "Think Outside the Box" which I saw on another site. I modified the individual block design, but am using the standard layout for it.
Next on the list is the border for Orca Bay. Time to piece more purple strings, to make a stringy piano key border for it. Black, then strings, then bordered in black - maybe this will get done this month.
The final goal for this month is to finish binding Pink Posies. That is certainly an achievable goal, if I stay focused and don't start any new projects in the next week.
