April Goal Finished

April Goal – complete!

I finished this quilt last night at like 10:30 last night.  I was pretty excited to see the top come together.  Literally used the last little bit of Kona Snow I had to make one last strip.  So now I’m going to be in trouble.

Why?  Well take a look below.

The quilt is crooked.  That’s inches off even though the top is straight and all the rows have the same amount of pieces.  I’m going to need to lob off some of the bottom and piece together a bordering strip with whatever I cut off and have left on some unused pieces.  It will finish as a throw size.  As I was piecing I thought it was going to be larger.  Glad it’s not.

Considering how much of a funk I’ve been in this month, I’m taking this top the way it is as a win.  Not really sure why I was in a sewing rut but it happens from time to time.

I had the chance to just get out and run the other day.  No stroller or dog along with me.  Just me and some inappropriate music to just be blasting from my phone.  Headphones and I don’t get along since I wear a headset all day for work.  It was therapeutic to get out and enjoy the surroundings.  It was one of my last runs in these shoes.  They are being retired today.  They have served me well but maybe my new shoes will get me out of my rut.  New, wild, wacky ideas may come to me while on the road.  Stay tuned for one that has been turning in my head for a while.  With the nicer weather I can make it happen.



Linking up with A Lovely Year of Finishes.

  1. Congrats on reaching your goal! That has happened to me before when the piecing doesn’t line up. A real pain! But it sounds like you are taking it in stride. Happy stitching to you!

    1. Thanks Nicole. I was upset but now it’s a chance to square up the quilt. Won’t look as I had imagined but it will all work out.

  2. […] May I am going to quilt and bind my April Finish.  I was able to baste the quilt on Sunday as I watched Game of Thrones.  I’m still not […]
