My Goal for April

I have been helping a family member with a project so I don't have much of my own to show you.  Then I realized that instead of showing you what I've done, I could tell you my plans for the month.

You might have guessed from the image, but my plans for April are going to be simple and may seem realistic.  I am going to make 30 circles for my Project 365 quilt.  This may seem like a small goal, but it is going to be difficult for me to reach it with everything else I have to do this month.

To keep your mind off the fact that I am not showing anything finished today, I want to divert your attention to a couple of fantastic quilts I found on other blogs.

Barbara Brackman shows a flag quilt that looks new but was made during the Civil War. It is mostly pieced and has a lot of tiny pieces and silk campaign ribbons.

Esther Aliu shows a beautiful applique quilt.  Esther designed this quilt and offered the pattern for free on her newsgroup. One of the members, Ineke Waijers-Persons, made this beautiful elaborate quilt with a circus theme.

Sometime simple goals are the most meaningful -- you'll make it, I know you will.

Good luck with this goal. It will need a lot of commitment but you will probably do it.
