One Monthly Goal April 2018 Finish!

April flew by! Time to report back on April's One Monthly Goal hosted by Elm Street Quilts

My goal for April was to finish a baby quilt top using blocks from the Quilter's Planner 2018 Block of the Month Sampler Sew-Along. I am excited to report that I reached this goal and now have a finished top!!! It is always windy at our house so getting pictures of a quilt top can be very difficult. Even with a helper it was difficult! Still, you get the idea. It is done!

I wrote about sizing in my last post. I added a border so I think it is close to 60 x 60 (need to go measure again to be sure). Now it looks huge to me but I'm hoping this makes it something that can be used for years to come. 

I really appreciated all the input I received regarding the backing. In the end I chose the Dear Stella Supernova Solar System Navy Fabric. I did not attempt to match up the print on the back so the seam is obvious, but I decided I was okay with this. I still think it will look good and one of my girls said she really loved it so that gives it major points in my book. 

And of course I can't forget a #quiltsandshoe picture!

Any guesses on what my May goal will be? You'll find out soon!

  1. I like your quilt and your choice of colors !

  2. At first I was like WAIT! OMG reporting time? No! and then in a small voice...yes. I don't even know what mine was, so that does not bode well does it? The quilt turned out beautifully and yay you for navy sandals to match. I hear you on the wind; our county is super-flat and we're right close to Lake Erie's shore, so windy here most days too! I bet I know your May goal...

  3. This quilt is awesome and i just love the backing fabric. Thanks for linking up with Elm Street Quilts One Monthly Goal and congrats on your finish!

  4. I love how the quilt top turned out! Hooray for you meeting your goal—I’m still working on mine :)

  5. Well I'm guessing you are going to quilt it. Congratulations on meeting your goal and finishing this fabulous top.
