April in my rearview...

What a month it has been!

It started off with a quilting retreat...which I believe I already told you about.  You can read about it here.  While I was there I finished these tops.

April 2014 Retreat Finishes

I came home from retreat and got busy working on quilting for other people.  I quilted 12 tops this month.

If you look closely you can see that one of them was even mine!

Star of Africa Block
This block arrived in time to help me celebrate!

I celebrated my birthday, Easter, and had a wonderful date night with my husband. We went to see "Casablanca" on the big screen.  I  had no idea a movie could get better just by tossing it in a projector.

I had another quilt pattern published on Moda Bake Shop

and got to see my work in a national publication.

Hot dawg. Made and quilted by me. Published in McCall's Quilting, May/June 2014

The quilt came home a few days later...and we rearranged the house to accommodate it.

And it has a new home...

May promises to be just as full.  I hope you had a wonderful month!

You have had a busy month! I love your Ocean Waves quilt. It looks even better in it's real home than it did in the magazine.
