It's Fresh Sewing Day and Small Blog Meet

Jeepers did the first of the month really come around again so quickly?!  Another month, another header.  Does that mean I need to make more new buttons?  Well maybe not this month.  So what have we all achieved during April?  I managed to finish three quilts, and this is the one I love the most.  Designed on Touchdraw for iPad, cut using my Sizzix drunkards path dies, pieced using Kona solids, quilted using Aurifil 40wt and shipping soon to my big sister in France.  The fabulous response I received for this quilt has nudged me to decide (i) to produce and sell my first quilt pattern (coming soon) and; (ii) to host a quiltalong to make this quilt (also coming soon).

What about you?  What have you worked on this month?  Any finishes?  Maybe a mosaic of everything you've been doing?  One favourite thing?  Link up at the bottom of this post to share what you've been working on. If you do link up, how about visiting at least four of the other blogs who link up - two above you and two below you - and stopping to leave a comment as well as visiting back anyone who visits you. As always here's the button to grab:
Lily's Quilts

And link up in the second linky if you are a blog with fewer than 50 followers and would like to get to know a few more people out there in blogland. Write a post about this feature, add this button and then link up.

Next go and visit and get to know at least four other linked blogs - starting with the two above you in the linkys and the two below you. Visit those blogs, leave a comment, click to follow and visit that blog regularly over the next few weeks. Visit more if you have the time. And also visit back any new bloggers who come to visit you and get to know them and their blogs.

  2. Go for it girl ;o)
    I know you have a very busy month ahead of you and a huge conclusion to that busy month in early June - so to quote Jack - 'Keep Calm and Quilt On'
    Power to you girl and your next busy, full filled 40 days, I know you can do it. Do it with fun, laughs and a big smile.
