April Goals

Sorry 2 blog post in one day, I didn't realize it was the 7th of April already, ouch!  1/4 of the month already gone: Let's get sewing!

Monthly goals:
1.        Every month I plan on following along with  

The "Classic meets Modern QAL"  this month is the The Double Z Block
2.       Every month I plan on making a block for the
 Aurifil Designer of the Month   Angela Yosten block.
3.       Every month I plan on making something from a
 Craft book Sew Alongmaybe I will do something this month, maybe not.
4.       Every mid-month I plan on meeting the challenge over 
at Le Challenge. Bright, this month, I've got that covered.
5.       Every month make a bag from
"Big City Bags" also a Sew Along. Got the fabrics cut, just need to sew.
6.       I want to make 4 Quilts this year, I made the Pantone Challenge quilt top last month and have the back almost pieced together and just got my batting in today, so perhaps a quilt will be finished this month.
This months specific goals:
I am in the SuperPower Blog Hop that starts this Friday, the list of bloggers are in the post below, and I have my Secret Super Power to reveal, stay tuned.
I need to make 4 Fabric suitcases, the first one is a test run and the other 3 I have sold to a friend of mine for her nephews.  I have cut and interfaced my test run bag and now I am just nervous to do the sewing part.
  I am up-cycling some Maternity Over-alls I had and the inside fabric will be American flags and of course this too cute Metal Label from Emmaline Bags.
 The boys fabric's will be the bright colors below with the motor cross fabric for the inside.
 This is all I am going to try to do this month, it is enough I think.
Linking up to A Lovely Year of Finishes.


  1. I have a pair of ....larger....jeans I've been saving to make a "big butt bag". Someday. Looks like plenty to do! :)

  2. you always choose such interesting projects Mara. Fabric suitcases sound brilliant!

  3. Looks like your bags are going to be fun!

  4. Looking forward to seeing your progress. The bag is already looking great!
