April Goal for A Lovely Year of Finishes

Since it appears that I need a deadline to get anything of mine finished, I am joining Sew Bitter Sweet this month for April.  This is a row quilt that was made with a group of quilters in my little town of Odessa.  We got to choose the fabrics and the size of our rows, then every month another quilter had our fabrics to make a row for our quilt.  It was lots of fun and not one pattern was duplicated by the quilters!  I really want to get my low-volume (first time trying this - love the result) row quilt finished this month, all the way to the label!  If I can get this one finished this month, I'll still have over 50 quilt tops that I need to quilt *hangs head in shame*, but I always seem to put customer quilts ahead of my own quilts - that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it!!

This lovely, calm quilt is on my frame...do you think I can get it finished by the end of the month?  I HATE hand work and this one will really need the binding finished by hand...my hands ache just thinking about it!!!

Deadlines light the candle under me too. Otherwise I bounce around from project to project and pleasure to pleasure. Claire aka knitnkwilt

I love deadlines! I will not even take something to our guild meeting unless it is COMPLETELY done. I have grown to know me. A quilt a month I think is very reasonable and I am routing for you! I will admit when I choked alittle when I read over 50!! You Go Girl!!!!

How's that coming? Do you sew your binding on while it's on the longarm?
