It has been raining so much this month that I am sure the mosquitoes will have a field day this year.

Here is a little topper I designed a few years ago.  This was taken off the craftsy site when Craftsy did their purging.

Here it is using the beautiful Island Batik Fabrics.

Today I put the binding on three quilts.

I can only show you one.

If you have been reading my post, you will remember that this quilt is made from the scraps of another quilt.  I used the Accuquilt Go orange peel die to make the shapes.  I also used Aurifil 50 wt. thread.

I have yet to quilt the other quilt but it is sandwiched.

I love this Oriental fabric from Inchworm Fabrics.

I have really made some headway this month in all of the quilts I have an obligation to make.  I always worry about meeting deadlines but I think I am going to make it.

I have two quilts that need to be quilted (this is not counting the UFO's), yes, I have plenty of those.

What beautiful projects. I love your April Showers table topper in Island Batik fabrics. Just so cheerful, it wouldn't matter if it was raining outside.

I love the umbrella topper. Since the pattern is no longer available on Craftsy, are you planning to activate your Etsy account soon and make the pattern available there? I hope so!

I love the April Showers topper in the Island Batik fabrics. Of course, the blues and greens in it are my favorite colors.
I have a quilt that I need to put the binding on. I just finished quilting it yesterday evening.

Love the table topper you designed. Perfect for this time of year. Love the other quilt too! Great job.

I don't understand why craftsy removed this pattern , it is really sweet , it's so pretty for spring and in the island batiks it is gorgeous.

Love those umbrellas and your orange peels turned out beautifully.

Those umbrellas are darling!!

Slow and steady and you will soon have the obligation quilts done. I always worry about not meeting deadlines, but I have yet to not meet one yet!
