My main April project was a cushion for the Modern She Made swap. I finished it in the nick of time - getting in the mail on the very last day of April. Phew!
The block pattern is the Florida Star and the finished cushion is 16" square. I used Moda Grunge fabric in navy for the background and am really loving that fabric. If you think navy is the new gray and texture is the new solid, then this is the fabric for you! I know I "need" some more of it.
I also made a little extra - a cute little 3" pin cushion - using the scraps from the pillow.
I did throw in some Norwegian chocolates, but no photos of those. I hope my partner will be pleased when her package arrives!
I also started on a charity quilt for Siblings Together. I got all these half-hexies sewn together in a flash, but the finished size is a bit small, so I need to add a border.
I want to use what I have, so I think it will have to be a yellow border. The colors in the hexies are really odd - I have nothing else like them in my stash! Except this yellow which is a secondary color in a few of the prints. Hope it will look OK!
So there - it doesn't look to bad on paper. Hope May is a bit more productive!
