Pink Lemonade is finished. I have to recant what I said about Mountain Mist Cream Rose batting a couple of posts back. I was having trouble not because of the batting but because glue from the tape I was using as a guide was gumming up the needle. Duh. Now that this little quilt is finished and washed - look how nicely it puckered up - I do like the Cream Rose batting. Best be careful using this batting for a quilt needing to be a specific size. I didn't measure before and after but I expect with so much puckering it shrank some.
I've moved on to hand quilting another little shoofly quilt.
This years challenge for my guild is to finish up as many UFOs as you can by May 28th, our end of year potluck meeting. So far, I've finished up five. I think I can do nine. It won't win for most UFOs completed but that's okay. I'm happy to finish things up.
These two are ready for some machine quilting so I think they and the little shoofly I'm hand quilting will bring me up to nine UFOs completed for the year. That's my plan.
Look what came in the mail yesterday. It was a surprise to get this bookmark and a letter from my quilting cousin, Mary, in San Diego. She made this on her Bernina Artista 630.
Thanks again, Mary!
Despite having a bit of snow here earlier this week, signs of spring are all around. The daffodils and periwinkle are blooming and there are shoots of green grass in the yard. The wind chimes on my front porch have continually made their music this month. I'm looking forward to a warmer April.
